I'm trying out bento lunches with my son. Making it fun and colorful and he's eating everything I put on his meals. You could try that, it's actually not that difficulta nd not time consuming.

Otherwise you could try smoothies. Throw in a handful of spinich and she'll never taste it because the fruit flavors will disguise it. Throw in other veggies, carrots, celery or whatever you have and they'll be masked. Cucumber however will not be masked as easily but is still yummy to add to smoothies.

Jessica Seinfeld has a recipe book just for this. Maybe if you google for Jessica Seinfeld recipes you'll get some ideas?

You can hide them in meat. Like meatloaf. Even hamburgers! Chop them up real fine. Try different kinds of veggies too. Some kids like certain ones.

I always add a ton of veggies to meat I'm making. Like when I make tacos, I add onion, bell pepper, carrots, celery, spinach, etc to it while cooking.  I cut them really small.  It's great for DH too lol.

I love casseroles for this same reason.  When I make tater tot casserole, I do the same thing with tons of veggies like frozen corn, peas, carrots and celery and onion.

Spaghetti is another meal where I just throw everything into it.

Can you make spaghetti squash instead of noodles?

My kids also eat a TON of those fruit/veggie pouches and we do a lot of fresh made juice in the summer. I'll even throw carrots into that.
