  • Make him fruit smoothies. Have your tried pancakes, french toast sticks. Whole grain cereals. If he will eat spaghetti sauce, shred zucchini and carrots into the sauce, they will melt and he won't taste them but he will still get the nutrients. Toast, bagels, pb&j sandwiches are good options too. If he likes juice, Juicy Juice has a veggie juice that tastes like fruit juice and is 100% juice. Good luck.

  • Try putting carrots in meat loaf! Or cutting up tomatoes really small and putting them in an alfredo sauce with shrimp or italian sausage!

  • Have you tried mushrooms? We had a crawfish boil last weekend and my 2 1/2yo ds LOVED the mushrooms except for the fact that they were EXTREMLY spicy but I still had to make him stop eating them cuz he kept drinking water and milk and telling me "picy". LOL! How about sweet fruits like watermelon and strawberries?

  • Picky phases are a normal part of childhood. You have the power of determining whether or not your child grows up picky.
    No one needs meat, so don't worry about the chicken.
    Kids love to dip: fruit & yogurt; veggies & hummus or salad dressing; whole wheat pasta & marinara sauce.
    Frozen peas and frozen blueberries are great. Avocado on whole grain bread, whole wheat tortillas with beans and cheese, chunks of tofu.
    Make a smooothie: frozen berries, frozen banana chunks, kale (loaded with calcium and iron), orange juice (vitamin C to increase iron absorbtion) and yogurt (soy, cow, coconut, etc.) or tofu
    Just keep offering a variety of healthy foods and he will eat.

  • I agree fruit smoothies. There are a ton of fruits my youngest won't eat but blend them all up and she sucks them down.
