  • My son is bad about eating vegetables, which baffles me since he was such a great eater his first year or so. I think it's a texture thing in his case. He loves yogurt, so I usually hide some vegetable puree in his vanilla yogurt, and he eats it right up. Spaghetti sauce is another good place to add diced vegetables or purees if they like pasta. He will also eat almost anything that looks like a pancake; so I make either carrot or sweet potato whole wheat pancakes, and he loves them. He's good about eating fruits as long as they don't have skin, but with the vegetables I have to be more creative and sneaky. I still serve them on the side, but he usually won't eat them. I hope he outgrows this soon! I loved most vegetables as a kid.

  • Cut up fruit or veggies in small pieces and use a toothpick for a skewer. Skinny stick pretzels can be used for some cheeses and ham or turkey cubes also. Use yogurt as a dip for the fruit or ranch dressing for the veggies. Graham crackers or vanilla wafers with peanut butter is good. My kids liked ants on a log. Celery sticks with either cream cheese or peanut butter with raisins on top. Use crackers with a small piece of cheese, ham or turkey to make a small sandwich. Make a sandwich, cut off crusts and cut into four squares or triangles. Fruit smoothies are another good choice.Make everything small, that way they aren't intimidated by seeing so much food. Share the snack your child.
