When you know you have all the resources to buy the best and healthiest food ever for your now growing children, but just can’t get them to eat it, what else could be more frustrating?

Kids, as they grow, tend to change their eating habits. You’ll wonder how something you’ve served to them a few weeks ago could suddenly turn out to be a flop the next time around, but as the cliche goes, where there’s a will, there’s a way! With creativity, resourcefulness, and patience, there’s a way to satisfy the palate of even the most finicky eaters. Here are some tried and tested healthy veggie dishes you may want to try:

1. MASHED POTATOES is easy to make and is usually loved even by picky eaters. Make them healthier by adding some carrots to the pot and mash them together with the mashed potatoes to make ‘Orange Mashed Potatoes’. You can also do this with butternut squash or even broccoli. Another alternative is mashed sweet potatoes sprinkled with just a little brown sugar.

2. BANANAS, are an excellent source of potassium. You can have peanut butter spread and raisins sprinkled over them, maybe added to oatmeal with cinnamon chips, or blended & added to a refreshing smoothie along with blueberries, orange juice, vanilla yogurt and ground flax-seed.

3. VEGETABLE CAMOUFLAGE. For the must-eat vegetables that your child would instantly say “NO!” to upon sight, you’ll have some sneaking to do. You can conceal carrots, zucchini, broccoli or squash in sweet muffins. You can also try mincing veggies or grinding beans and add them to soups.

These are only a few suggestions but hopefully you get the idea. If they plain won’t eat their veg you just have to get sneaky for the sake of their health, it’s less hassle and shouldn’t meet with stubborn resistance! Still keep offering vegetables in other ways however as one day they are sure to see the error of their ways!
