  • That's a good idea, also you can blend vegetables into different recipes.

  • dont give him any other options tell him this is what is on the menu and if you dont want to eat thats fine but i wont give you anything else, i am your mommy and i know what is best for you, if you give them options they will take all of them narrow it down for him thats what we do with our children and if they dont want it believe me next meal they will clean their plates and ask for more

  • I add pureed veggies like carrots,squash,and yams to orange juice for my son.You can also add fruit and sweet veggies into yogurt.

  • Yeah and tons of sugar added. No, maybe you should try disguising veggies in food for him.

  • To Emleejane...good luck with you and your ideas if you have one that refuses to eat and throws up instead. Mine would have starved. He could go days without eating.
