    Our DD's love veggies. All we ever did was eat lots of them ourselves, they always want what's on someone else's plate!
    I can understand why some parents hide them in food but IMO I think they should be encouraged to eat them, not tricked into it.

    I agree 100%. We eat heaps of veges, and always have fresh steamed veg in the fridge for snacks. He is just going through a "that's yucky" stage so unfortunately I have to be a bit sneaky. Hopefully it's just a passing phase

    My daughter eats veges... it's always been "the rule" that she has to.

    It's DP that doesn't. I grate veges and add them to whatever I can. Even casseroles... they might be noticed in chunks, but they won't in grated form.

    Getting the kids somewhat involved in the process might help to... whether that's growing veges/picking them at the shops or helping them arrange stuff.

    I'm lucky DD loves veggies, she always goes back for seconds.
    DS on the other hand was always difficult. I used to make a broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms in a thick white sauce, I'd roll it in a cling wrap sausage in the fridge until it 'set', then roll it in breadcrumbs and fry with spray oil, he looooooved his 'fish fingers' but didn't have a single bit of fish

    Love it! I'm trying it for the kids lunches tomorrow.

    My DD hates most veges. I have no idea why, I've also eaten heaps, all she ate from 6 months to 18 months was homemade vege babyfood, but over the past year she's become really fussy. Here's what I do:

    - Peel and grate zucchini (Adri will not eat "Green bits", so it has to be peeled) and make cheese, zuchinni and bacon omlettes (very little bacon)


    - Peel and grate zucchini and add it to stewed apple and sultanas


    - carrot cake mini muffins


    - vege chips (still perfecting these - they've tended to turn out soggy in the past, but DD still eats them)


    I'm lucky that DD will eat carrot, broccoli, cauliflower ect as long as they're on the side of the plate, no sauces ect. Unfortunately, as soon as they're in pasta sauce or something, they're "green bits" or "orange bits" and she won't have a bar of them.

    Kids are odd
