Anyway.... I just really had to pop in quickly to say MY KIDS ATE VEGETABLES TONIGHT!!!! I have no doubt it was a one-off, but at least I know it's a recipe they somewhat eat. The older 2 said they liked it (though I think their like for it wore off towards the end), and ate a small bowlful with a bit of encouragement. The younger one ate half a small bowlful with a LOT of encouragement, but OMG it's the most veggies I've seen them eat since they were babies.
The recipe was the one I posted in my second post, this one. http://www.notquitenigella.com/2013/...er-fried-rice/ And I must say, it was absolutely delicious, I really didn't think it was going to taste so good! I told them that it was "pretend rice" and that it was "all vegetables", then at the end I told them it was cauliflower. I would highly recommend this recipe!

I know this doesn't help with getting them to eat vegies, but if it's any consolation I was an extremely fussy hold and my parents did give in to that. My meals always consisted of whatever protein they were having, plus mashed potato with vegemite mixed through (only way I'd eat it, a slice of cheese, salts as, dried apricots and cut up apple). I started eating more in my mid-teens, and i now eat pretty much anything (except mushrooms!!) I am also a healthy weight and rarely get sick.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's great that you're trying everything to get them to eat their vegies, but if they don't it is not the end of the world. Hopefully they'll cone to appreciate them in their own time.
