    Default Food ideas for kids refusing vegetables

    Hi

    Just thought I'd share today's success!

    DS (2 1/2) is not a bad eater generally, but refuses to eat vegetables for dinner. Today I made mini quiches and sausage rolls packed full of veg, and he devoured heaps of both And the 6 month old loved the sausage rolls too!

    http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/13975/sausage+rolls

    Would love to hear any of your successful recipes to help get DS to eat more veges

    ETA - Aww can't add the link for mini quiche - google 'kids mini vegetable quiche'

    spag bol is a sure winner, grated zucchini , grated carrot and anything else you can think to chuck in that will be disguised by the tomato sauce

    I do
    Chicken or mince meatloaf with 9 veggies!
    Chicken/Fish vegetable and cheesy pie
    Tacos - mince has 5 vegetables plus lettuce, avocado, tomato on top.
    Chicken/lentil/pumpkin soup with finely diced vegetables.
    Spaghetti/Pasta bake with tuna and grated veggies and peas and corn.
    Bolognese with chicken or mince loaded with grated veg.
    Stew/Casserole/curry with veggies and meat.

    My nieces refuse to eat any veggies so when they come here for dinner i make them " veggie chips" which is just sweet potato, parsnip, carrot and beetroot sliced in thin strips with a vegetable peeler lengthways , put on baking tray with baking paper and spray with olive oil in a hot oven, they take about 5-8 mins and I make extra as the adults eat them all too! ( they are actually great food for kids party's too)

    My 16mo is fairly easy to fool so I made veggie pizza for him - half a Helga's Thin topped with finely diced veg (tbh I used one of the frozen stir fry veg packets), tomato paste and cheese. Under the grill for a min or two and done
