I love recipes like this one. I also do mac and cheese and put broccoli in it along with chicken. You can really use any vegetable in it you want. It works.

I have a friend that swears by Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. Her very picky husband and even pickier 3-year-old loves the recipes.

Good ideas...I have also heard of putting cooked beets in chocolate cake, although I haven't tried it.

There are also several cookbooks that help people sneak vegetables into food. One is by Jerry Seinfeld's wife.

sounds great you will be surprise at all the things you can sneak fruit and veggies in if the kids don´t like them.into tomatoe sauce you can add purreed pumpkin,carrots,red peppers etc as the colour wont change.in hamburgers you can add finely grated veg.potatoe in chocholate cake along with zucchine or carrot cake.purreed apples and banans are also good as a subsitute for egg in cakes.you will be surprised how much things can be hidden and in what food.but have you thought of getting the kids to prepare the food themselfes then they are more likely to eat it if they have prepared it themselfs.pizza with lots of differant veg,nice stir fries(dry fryingor with a bit of water)the more colourful the better.you can even mix some vegtables in bread if you make your own.give it a try you might be surprise.good work on your reciepe though you did great.

Hi, i'm new to the website. I wanted to share what i cooked last night. I have a super picky 7 year old and i've been trying to sneak in veggies. Last night i made spaghetti, whole grain spaghetti with lean ground beef, garlic and onions spaghetti sauce. I added a cup of spinach and i used my potato peeler to cut carrots into small strips to resemble noodles. It turned out great and everyone loved it. My husband said he couldn't tell a difference in the taste and the kids didn't even notice, but we all got more veggies. It also makes the spaghetti go further so you really get to eat more and not add a lot of extra calories. I was so pleased with how it turned out i had to share it.
