Sometimes you just have to get very creative and tricky. My kids do love the V8 splash.

I like the V8 suggestion. I have a son that hates most vegetables. I will sometimes use Splenda Brown Sugar when cooking some of them...like carrots. He eats those. Not sure how it would taste with green beans or spinach though...lol.

Does she like mashed potatoes? My picky son will eat corn and peas mixed in his mashed potatoes.

I thought about those V8 tropical blends - I have been unable to eat a lot of foods due to dental work and am always looking for liquid alternatives to getting my fruits and veggies in.

My daughter is 6, and although she is not the least bit picky about food, I've found that V8 Tropical Blends are the easiest thing. You get a full serving of fruits AND veggies in one shot, and they come in a few different flavors. Best of all, your child won't even know it's healthy!!

Watch out, though, because V8 also puts out some "smoothie" drinks and other stuff that aren't actually made of fruits and veggies...just make sure to check the label for the "100% juice" markings.

Hope that helps!

Well who needs a kitchen when you have the mess hall. Well other than anybody with live taste buds. emoticon

Lifeís easier when you can write off others as monsters, as demons, as horrible threats that must be hated & feared. The thing is, you canít do that without becoming them, just a little.

Iíve tried cooking in the type of kitchen you describe. I lived in an apt. where the kitchen was also the hallway from the living room to the bedrooms & bath. You could effectively block someone for getting to the bathroom by opening the oven. Who is it that ads the kitchen as an after thought?

I will defintely try that at the next house (we are in the middle of a move right now).
Thank you fo the idea!

When I open the fridge it hits the the dish washer, the stove is right next the washer an the front door, two people don't fit in my kitchen at once. The hyper active five yearold isn't happening in there with anything hot turned on lol. Gotta wait until we get to the next military housing (one built after 1920) emoticon

My nieces wouldnít try anything new at home at that age, but ate all sorts of things at my place because they helped cook. Get her a funky apron and let her help you fix the nightly veg. Food made with love and laughter are just better for you anyway.

You are welcome. I just remembered something else I wanted to suggest. A little snack that is a quick fix (a healthy) is to by sliced/diced pineapple and drain the juice. Place it in a bowl and top with a little bit of cottage cheese.

Just another suggestion to try. I hope you can find something. Sometimes kids just go through that picky stage and grow out of it.

Have you ever tried celery with peanut butter? I loved that when I was a kid (and still do) plus my neice likes it as well....though she does sit there and just eat a bag of baby carrots all by herself.

Does anyone else have trouble with four to 6 yearolds (the one I am having trouble with is 5 right now) eatin fruit or veggies. She won't eat or try either. TheSmallest is fine with everything (but she's 2 she'll eat anything) Just wondering. I am so sick of forcing her to try things. An then watching her sit there until until her food becomes like ice, or congeals. Any ideas. I have tried every FUN thing I could look up. Maybe some new recipes are in order emoticon
Thanks
