Fall Favorites for Your Picky Eaters

Picky eaters. Is there one in your household? There is definitely one in ours.  But not to worry! There are things that you can do. And the best thing to do, is keep on offering the same foods, just in different and new ways! Sound too difficult? I've already thought up a few for you. Here are a few fall favorites of our picky eater.

Chicken Pot Pie - This is great for hiding healthy veggies and protein rich chicken into one cute and tasty package. You can make one big pie here or make individual pies. But whatever you do, get the ready-made crust. What are we super heroes? Come on! You don't have to cover the top with crust, you can make a super yummy potato topping, just by whipping up some mashed potatoes and pipe it onto the top. This adds even more vitamins, minerals and much needed fiber. Bake until golden on top and crust is done.

Mashed Potato Pinwheels - Take a large whole grain tortilla. Spread with mashed potatoes.  Add in sliced cheese and some lunchmeat (like turkey or ham). Roll up, and then slice.  The end result is some super fun finger food. Serve with fruit or a side of corn on the cob.

Super Sneaky Cornbread Muffins - I always make the cornbread as directed, but I add in some veggies. Shredded carrots, zucchini and squash. Bake it all together and top with cheddar cheese. These make for a great snack or dinner side along witih some milk.

Moms, what are you favorite fall meals that everyone enjoys - even the picky eaters in your home?

i sneak squash and pumpkin into my kids smoothies. Peaches, which are also in season, help hide the taste

really well too      :)

I love your ideas! I'm lucky that for the most part my family isn't very picky. The 2 younger ones are not big meat eaters so I tend to shred meats for them.

 My son will pretty much eat anything, so he's not hard to please.  Now, Derrick on the other hand, is very picky, and there's no getting around him.  I can't hide good stuff in food. . .he always needs to know what's in it.  I admit that he's getting better about trying new things, but it's impossible to "sneak" things in on him.
