Tried every trick in the book to make vegetables more desirable to your little one? Here are few you may have missed.
Bury Them in Baked Goods
Beets go unnoticed in chocolate cakes, and pureed squash and carrots are hidden well in white cake. Keep these unlikely combos in mind next time you bake.
Add carrot juice to your child’s favorite fruit juice and pour into ice-pop trays to make your own deliciously nutritious treats.
Become best friends with your blender
Pureed or blended vegetables are easily hidden in sauces. Add pureed carrots, spinach, peas, or broccoli to pizza or pasta sauce, and the spices and flavors will be a hit with your picky eater.
Mask Them in a Mash
Mashed potatoes are another great hiding place. Mix in blended cauliflower, parsnips or sweet potatoes to serve a nutrient-filled food that still tastes great.
Grated carrots or zucchini can be added to muffins or pancakes without a big change in texture. You can even try slipping some grated veggies into a grilled-cheese sandwich or quesadilla!
