My oldest did the same thing with veggies. From the jar he ate everything execpt peas. As he got to "big people" food, this degenerated into eating all veggies exept green ones, which degenerated into not eating veggies at all.

I recently found a product called Veggies Crunchers. This is a mixture of dried and salted carrots, squash, taro, and sweet potatoes. Since they are dried, they crunch like the potato chips he loves,so he eats them. Not the greatest solution, but at least it is a veggie.

I'm always sneaking pureed veggies into my sauces (shh don't tell my husband, it's the only way I can get veggies into him!)
My little guy likes it if I add different seasonings to his fruits and veggies. His favs: cinnamon, ginger, cloves (to peaches, apples, sweet potatoes), curry powder (various veggies), and a little Mrs. Dash occasionally. They have changing taste buds and want to try new things. It has been harder to get this little guy to eat his veggies than my first, so I've definitely had to get creative

Food processor... grind them down and put them in meatloaf, burgers, soups, pasta...stuff like that.

My kids have always been veggie lovers and will try almost anything I give them. Now they are healthy eating teens and pre-teens who never complain about veggies.

I on the other hand šouldn't stand anything green when I was a kid...but as an adult I'm a veggie-holic. Guess my body is trying to make up for lost time!

my daughter the same thing when she turned 1. she ate all kinds of veggies from the jar but when it came time to eat them in "big people" form she would at first but then she just started throwing them on the floor.

This may sound bad but I started adding a little bit of salt and now she eats them. For me I feel its better for her to get the veggies in her than for me to worry too much about the little bit of salt i put on them. Now her favorite veggie is broccoli LOL go figure!

I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!

My daughter just turned a year old and is starting to get picky about the veggies she used to love...does anyone have any good tips to get her to eat them? Even just a few? I've tried mixing them in with other foods she likes, pasta and stuff, she now picks them out :)

Thanks!
