My trick for hiding vegetables!
« on: Apr 15, 2013 @ 08:08 AM »
I just wanted to share with you my trick for hiding vegetables in my children's food. I don't know why they all seem to be allergic to the sight of vegetables, but I have discovered that if they can't see them, they aren't adverse to the taste! So I add colour coordinating vegetables to whatever sauce I am making (e.g carrots and red peppers to a tomato sauce for example, or mushrooms to a white sauce), cook them all up and then use a blender to hide any sign of the vegetable. All I am left with is a lovely smooth, appealing-looking sauce that they love and is full of nutrients!

I love this approach. I have to do it with my husband as well. There are a few cookbooks out there about using purees & sneaking it in to everything. It's also a great way to use up baby food. My kids still have no idea there is sweet potato puree in their pancakes!

Great idea! I need this advice at the moment to get my little Miss Sassy Pants eating vegetables! Any helpful advice is greatly appreciated. She just doesn't eat them (except for peas)

I'm always looking for guest bloggers to showcase once a week on my blog! Please email me at if you would like to share a story! Also, please like my facebook page!
