If you are struggling to get your children to eat vegetables, then you may want to try this “sneaky” idea. Puree vegetables in a blender and then add the purees into recipes your children like. I did this for years sneaking vegetables into meatloaf, hamburgers, and soups.
But, now there is a cookbook called, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals with a variety of delicious recipes your children will love including brownies made with spinach and blueberry puree. Watch this video to see a few examples. Then order the book!
If your child won’t eat vegetables and you are worried about him/her getting enough nutrients, you may want to try a mulitivitamin/multimineral supplement like ShakleeKids Incredivites (TM). I’ve used Shaklee Food Supplements for my children for over 10 years.
