I watched my 2 year old grandson last night so my kids could celebrate their anniversary out for a childless dinner. I brought my own vegetarian dinner...penne pasta, mushrooms, broccoli, meatless chicken with alfredo sauce. My grandson loved it...all of it. Couldn't believe he ate broccoli, mushrooms and vegetarian chicken protein.

Wooohoooo....you've got a veggie buddy to dine with smile

I bet you prepared it well also. Kids are usually pretty good eaters when you have a good presentation and sauce or dippers.....great job smile

It made me feel good Sue...his mom is getting better but she's a picky eater. She comes by it honestly though, her parents are both very picky. When my son first married her she ate only....and I mean only....chicken breast, OM all beef hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and spagheti with marina sauce..oh yes and bread...tons of bread. She now eats beef, some sea food, some veggies...she loves salad. Marrying my son was good for her.

When the children were really babies they loved all the baby foods like squash and such. 3 out of 4 will eat just about anything, but there's always one in a crowd right? The last little guy will gag, make faces, power down water w/each bite if faced with any vegetable matter (other than fries!)We've shown the children by example how to eat well balanced meals-but this one is just stuck.

I'm going to have to start "sneaking in" the veggies into foods!

Hahaha...sneak in those veggies Mary! And, you are sooo right, there is always one that will need the extra push with veggies. I found that zucchini breads and such are a great way for kids to eat their veggies too, not a full punch of veggies, but a start.

I just posted a green tomato pie recipe that's pretty sweet, that might be a starter for a veggie group too (or a fruit....depending on how you classify tomatoes! smile )

Another good one is juicing. Jam all those veggies in a juicer with some strawberries....oh yeah!!!

I did get him to drink a veg. V8, until eldest sister told him it was made out carrots and tomato! Now he won't drink one!
Doc. says the kid will come around in time, but he's 7 and I feel like these years are his building block years-in other words if he eats well balanced now-he will do this as an adult.

Be easy on the little one who hates veggies. Did you know that taste-buds, from one person to another, interpret flavors differently? Chemicals bind to the taste buds and cause sensations in the brain - some perceive the flavor as good, and others as disgusting.

One strange phenomenon is a fruit known as "miracle fruit." When the pulp is sloughed across the tongue for 30 seconds, it binds to the taste buds, which then interpret acids as sweet. Lemons are reported as tasting like candied fruits, beer like chocolate shakes, and vinegar like sweetened apple juice. If one tiny fruit can do this, you can understand how the body may change flavor in some kids.
