How I feed my child vegetables
Don't judge me. While Jeff and I are getting all hippie-like with our raw-food this, and our grass-fed that, my child is eating mac and cheese. It's the organic kind, but still. I have TRIED to get him to eat raw veggies to no avail. All the raw vegetables I give him end up forlorn and rejected on the floor near his high chair. The only way to get greens in him is to cook, puree them and spoon feed him. Even then it's pretty much only sweet potatoes that he will eat without dramatic and elaborate distractions.
So I put them in his pancakes. Yup, I have a pretty simple pancake recipe and I substitute some of the milk with.... pureed peas, chopped spinach, sweet potato, you name it. It works great for us.
Oh, and here's the recipe:
1 Cup flour (I usually do half wheat half white)
1/2 C milk
1/2 C pureed veggies, raw or cooked
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp agave
So, What do you do to get your little one to eat veggies?
