Yes, I am the sneaky Mom who hides vegetables in her children’s food. I was given some excellent advice by my doctor to avoid the challenge of getting kids to eat their vegetables, just hide it in their food! I took the advice and it has been very successful.
My favorite dish to fix is lentil soup. My kids call it the “green soup.” I cook a pot of lentils with Lima beans, fresh tomatoes, celery, spinach, corn, squash(sometimes), potatoes, carrots, etc. Once it has cooked for an hour, I place the soup in the food processor and puree. Kids love it and have know idea they are eating all the vegetables they often complain about. So, as one parent to another, remove the anxiety of vegetable eating from your life, get a food processor and puree away!!
What’s your secret to getting your kids to eat their veggies?
