View Full Version : What 2 do when DS doesnt like vege's?
Hi my DS loves the fruit and custard tins but dislikes the meat and vege ones! Every time i try to give him some he shuts his mouth, sticks his tongue out, throws his arms around or spits it back out. Ive tried him with actual vege's mashed up but he still protests. What should i do to try and make him enjoy vege's? I wonder if it's genetic, my DP hates vege's as well, it might of rubbed out on our DS! :rolleyes:
Hi - have you tried adding some cheese to vegies - or even mixing fruit with vegies?? I know you might think it sounds yuck - but you would be suprised at how well apple and carrot go down or even zuchinni and apple. Also we mixed veg in with a bit of ricotta chesse and DS loves it ! Anyway - you could try those...hope it helps :)
Have you tried the sweeter veges, pumpkin, sweet potato etc. I read somewhere that after 12 tastes kids will eat food that they previously didn't like. I would just keep giving it to him he will eventualy get hungery and eat it.
This is what i make once a week for the kids ( and hubby) who hate their veges. Its a Vegetable Bologonese.
I grab as many different veges as i can that will go together...cauli, brocoli,carrot, zucchini,tomatoes......blend in a blender with tinned tomatoes and a bit of water for liquid...usually takes 3 separate goes at it........add some fresh herbs to the last lot and a sachet of tomato paste. Cook mince and add the above mix and presto, hidden veges in bolognese sauce :p
I used to mix youghurt in with the veges. Euuww. But she ate it!
Mind you - she doesn't eat many veges now, it drives me nuts!
My dd hates vegies too.I put them in she spits them out and then wont even open her cute little mouth.
I bought the organic range of sweet baby vegetables in a jar and she actually ate them.
I thought I would add "normal" vegies to these gradually and see how we go.
Perserverence is the answer.
We also started our two with Pumpkin and sweet corn, they both loved it.
Are you only feeding him meat & vege from a can? My DS hated those, but loved all the fruit ones. He would eat any kind of meat & vege, as long as I had cooked it. Have you tasted that canned stuff? The meat & vege ones aren't too good :( thye don't have much flavour at all, even tho they smell ok.
He is now 2.5yrs old and loves all kinds of veges, raw or cooked...he ate raw potato last night again while I was trying to make dinner. I don't think theres anything genetic going on, his daddy hates veges, I think it has a bit more to do with what they see mummy and daddy eating...if I put veges on DH's plate he eats them, and DS eats his too :)
