Ways to sneak veggies in on a picky 2 year old...HELP!
I am at wits end with DD and her pickiness!
I cook well-balanced meals every night. We occasionally have pizza or burgers, but mainly we have a meat with 2 veggies and 1 starch of some sort.
As an infant she ate pureed veggies really well. When she started eating whole foods she would eat peas, carrots, and green beans. She loved them!
At around 18 months she decided that she didn't like any veggies. I can't even get her to eat corn. Now she is 28 months and after months and months of being patient I have had enough!
I do not cook anything special for her for any reason. She eats what is put in front of her or she doesn't eat at all. This is what I've read about and been told to keep doing. She always eats around the veggies. People tell me she will grow out of it. I just feel like she is not getting adequate nutrition. Nor is she learning good eating habits.
She loves spaghetti. I squeeze as many veggies I can into that and we eat that once a week. That has been my only success with this. I have tried mincing carrots or green beans and putting them in her rice for other meals. (She loves rice.) She actually spits each piece out as she is chewing---either that or she will see them and refuse to eat them,
What are some ways that you have succeeded getting some veggies by a picky toddler's taste buds?
