Is it just me or does this sentence make you think of cannibalism?

This French sentence is wrong and incorrect. With this construction, "ils" should represent the same person as the one who is "faisant manger". Obviously it is not the case.

To make it correct and easy to understand, you could say: "En faisant manger des légumes aux enfants, on leur fait découvrir un nouveau type de nourriture".

Thank you sitesurf. The English is also VERY awkward. Did you submit your correction to the powers that be?

I will mention the awkward English, too as it is two months later and still there.
