I have a hard time getting my son to eat his vegetables. So (and I'm stealing this idea from Bearno's spaghetti sauce) I microplane some carrots into spaghetti sauce. He can't tell it's there (what kid doesn't love pasta?) and gets an extra serving of veggies!
We were eating at Bearno's and I noticed there were bits of carrot in the marinara. With the microplane they are smaller, but you can get more in there and because of the color of the sauce the kids can't tell.

I like to puree veggies or fruits and sneak them into baked goods, mashed potatoes(pureed cauliflower) and in turkey burgers to add flavor. I also add to smoothies to get my intake of fruits and veggies. My son doesn't know that he is eating veggies and doesn't complain.
Just being sneak does pay off. We get more veggies and fruits in our diets.
