There is no denying that vegetables are good for you and can help keep you healthy, but for a lot of people, they are something that they eat solely because they are healthy and not because they really enjoy eating them.

For some people choosing their favourite vegetables is more of a task of choosing which ones they dislike the least, and for others, it is a more traditional way of choosing their favourite by thinking about the vegetables they like the most.
