It is not an issue for us. We all eat the sane things. We make him try a fruit or veggie before he decides he doesn't like it. The kid will devour avocados!!! He eats more fruit and veggies than anything.

Sneaky Chef book is our savior. My kiddo is as picky as I am. If we can taste it we dont eat it.. except corn and fruit.

MMM fruit.

Trick for us is to add it as filler to foods we eat, like pureed cauliflower to mashed potatoes. Extra bulk, tons of fiber and nutrients.. tastes like potatoes!

We started veggies young. He likes to try new things, and we have him have at least 2 bites of new things each time we have them. He loves carrots, green peeppers, cucumbers, etc, especially if he has some dip for it. He LOVES salad, just need low fat italian dressing and he eats it up.

Mine beg for veggies of all kinds- especially broccoli, cucumbers, greens and carrots. I never have to try to convince them to eat them :)

I do the same thing.

Quoting rawrmommysaurus:

I hide them in sauces and under cheese.  Althought they are older now so unless I puree them first they usually pick them off.

I tell them desert is celery with dip! I just changed the definition of desert and snacks when they were little. All kids talk about desert and snacks, but mine think it is celery or carrots.

I make them because I'm mean & bigger than they are.  And if they refuse, they don't have to eat them for dinner, but I'll wrap them up and get them out again for breakfast.  Now what do I win?
