I'm one of the lucky parents that didn't have to "do" anything. My dd loves fruits and veggies! If she didn't I would try dipping them in peanut butter, yogurt etc.

I have my kids help me prepare the fruit and vegetables even pick out the items at the grocery store. They love using the weigh machine at the store.

I dice the veggies up small and add them to other dishes like tacos or meatloaf. Plus, my kids love all veggies so I really don't have to disquise them to get them to eat them.

I cut up veggies and slip them into everything. I make a "Frosting" with very finely crushed almost pured veggies. Even for breakfast when he gets an omlete it gets ground spinage and carrots or broccali and he never knows the difference. With fruit i add it to yogurt because thats the one thing i dont have to fit him to eat :)

My kids eat TONS of fruit. Veggies are different. Some they will just eat on their own, others need to be told in a story. Sometimes the little tree (broccoli) needs to get put in a cave (his mouth) before it gets drenched by all of the rain (his water). Sometimes that works. It depends each day.

We let our girls dip veggies. They like fruit pretty well so that is not a problem. bw_vol at yahoo dot com.

I am lucky that they eat their vegetables and fruit. They must try them and they do. They are fruit people. You know how to get ahold of me--Lori B.

My girls love to be independent and grown up, at two, so one of their favorite things to do is help themselves from the package. If I give them the plastic basket of berries or cherry tomatoes, they will eat the whole thing! Also, I cut up green pepper slices and put them in a snack size baggie and they walk around the house munching on them.

If I make enchiladas I try to sneak in some corn inside, I try to add veggies to pastas and other dishes, so the kids eat them without noticing. But I would love to try the little blends, my kids love yogurt so if they can get veggies that way, it would be great. Thanks

I have the cookbook Deceptively Delicious and I use that as a guide. I sneak cauliflower into mashed potatoes, carrot or squash puree into mac n cheese and avocado and tomato into quesadillas. For fruits, I puree and spread onto toast or make smoothies with yogurt.

Pizza is a great way to get our little guy to eat some veggies. I also have done the purees and mixed them into different dishes. The Deceptively Delicious Cook book has helped me with that.

I always keep extra fresh fruit and veggies in the house. A lot of times I will already have celery and carrots cut up and little servings of dips so they can easily grab them. My email adress is tgoforth1984@yahoo.com

My grandson will eat nearly anything healthy if I turn it into a make believe adventure, stuff celery through the hole in swiss cheese, etc. stardust615201@yahoo.com

Rachel McGuire said...

Well, if I can't puree it and cook it up in muffins, bread, or pancakes then I boil it in tiny chunks and add it with fruit, pudding or jello to "mask" the taste. Melted cheese works some times too and ranch dressing (if your not on a healthy kick that is).
