  • Carrots and butter are nummy. I grate mine and hide them in pasta sauce. You can make carrot cake. Carrot muffins. Carrots dipped in ranch.

  • If your baby is old enough to dip on his own maybe give him raw carrots with something to dip into. If you are cooking them maybe put alittle gravy on them or italian dressing.

  • If he doesn't like carrots then he doesn't like them. No way you prepare them is going to change his tastes. :)

    BUT, I despise carrots and I will eat them in a few ways. I eat them if they have been roasted for a few hours (slowcooked) with chicken, pot roast, beef stew, etc. :) They suck in the flavor of what they have roasted in. :)

  • johnny loooves carrots.
    you can hide them by shredding them in something he likes.
    you can also candy your carrots with brown sugar.
    or we like them raw with different dips (yogurt for example or ranch dressing)

  • well my 2 year old loves beans and broccoli and hates carrots and squash, so what i did for the carrots is that i made some chicken that night, and what i did is on my 4 year old and my 2 year old's plates, i shredded the carrots into pieces that they could see them, and then i put some barbe-q sauce on them, and they loved it!
