Be careful with labelling food
By making ice cream the treat, you're ingraining into your kids that peas are horrible and junk food's great. Try saying 'If you're good and eat up your dinner this week, we can go and do something fun on the weekend'. It doesn't label foods as 'good' or 'bad' and you still get them to eat well.
