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!
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

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
