  • Dice up onions, bell peppers, and grate some carrot into your meatloaf mix.

    You can do the same with cheeseburgers.

    In lasagnas, you can do the same. Tuck some zucchini ribbons under the pasta.

  • Oh, and if you make smoothies at all, you can throw in a carrot. It has a sweet taste and once it is blended into the drink they won't even know it is there.

  • I try not to hide the veggies. I want my kids to develop good eating habits and appreciate the veggies in front of them so that they can make informed choices later in life.

  • There is a book called "Deceptively Deliscious" by Jessica Seignfeld, (Jerry Seinfel's wife) all about making veggie purees and mixing them into other meal staples so the kids (and hubby) don't even know its there. Like cauliflower puree mixed into mashed potatoes or scrambled eggs, and sweet potato puree mixed into spaghetti sauce, etc.

    I've made a home-made mac and cheese with butternut squash mixed in and the kids love it....they have no idea. I highly reccommend her book.

  • Veggies (and fruit) ARE nature's tasty treat.
