  • Homemade burritos. I make them. Take a pound of ground turkey and brown it well. Add in a can of fat free refried beans. Mix 1/4 cup chicken broth with a packet of taco seasoning and mix it into the meat/bean mixture. Heat through. Roll in a tortilla or pack into a taco shell. You can add cheese too which adds protein too. Then you can put whatever veg you want on yours. We add tomatoes, lettuce, onion, avocado, and sour cream.

  • Peanut butter is a good source of protein. Try dipping carrots into peanut butter or apple slices into peanut butter. Whole grain cereal is a good source of fiber. Whole grain pasta, or those with added fiber. If he will eat spaghetti sauce, shred zucchini and carrots into the sauce, they melt but still get the nutrients.

  • High fiber meals have fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, lentils, tofu, etc.Meat & dairy have little or no fiber. You should be eating healthy foods to set a good example. Replace whites (rice, pasta, bread, tortillas, etc.,) with browns (whole grain breads, etc.).Kids love to dip: fruit & yogurt; veggies & hummus or salad dressing; whole wheat pasta & marinara sauce.I have many healthy, tasty, kid and budget friendly recipes.I will list some, contact me for recipes: noodles & veggies with peanut sauce,veggie pot pie,lentil tacos,sweet potato & black bean burritos,sloppy jojos (made with lentils),noodles with beans, sauce, spinach&cheese;Italian stew,veggie stew with dumplings (crockpot);southwest falafel (bean patties with avocado sauce);tofu "fish sticks" with sweet potato or acorn squash baked "fries".The rule at our house is you try 3 bites of dinner, if you don't don't like it you get toast with PB & an apple

  • by the way, you will be doing your child a HUGE disservice by allowing him to grow up to be a picky eater. Keep offering a variety of healthy foods and stop having junk in the house for a while.
    Most three year olds will eat frozen peas, blueberries and corn.
