That is so great! It's so exciting when they are finally willing to try things. I really praise them over and over for that...and of course, keep doing it over and over. I think my little girl tried peas about 50 times before she decided she liked them. emoticon

Just give it time. My son at two would only eat corn so we supplimented his meals with Pedisure. Now at 3, he's totally into salads with low-fat Ranch or just raw carrots by the handful.

I have the same issue with my two year old and also tried the hoarding method.... No luck!


I tried hiding them in the foods he does like, but he has gotten so good at picking out the vegetables that he doesn't like. He can somehow take a bite and "fish " them out enough to spit them out. Baby food maybe?

I try to do several recipies a week that include several chopped veggies cooked in with the main dish so they are well disguised and infused with the meat or sauce flavor. My 2 year old's favorite food is spaghetti right now, so I started adding broccoli, zucchini, onions, and squash into the sauce. He loves it!

I can, I will, I am!

The thing that has worked best for me is if the kids help pick out the veggies, do something to help prepare them (like wash them or push the buttons on the microwave), or have some other role where they contribute to getting the food to the table. Then I can usually at least get them to try the thing "they made."

My son is 2 and has been telling me he doesn't like "fill in the blank". I'd love to hear creative advice to make veggies more interesting / palatable for him instead of him decorating the walls and floor with the same veggies.

I've tried hording them on my plate as if they are something "he shouldn't have" and that worked a few times but it seems to have lost it's currency.
