One of my children in particular is a very picky eater. It is nearly impossible to get her to eat any veggies... except when she doesn't know she is eating them. ;)
Whenever we have macaroni and cheese for lunch, I add two cubes of pureed carrots and no one can taste the difference. To make the cubes:
- Peel, chop, and steam a big bag of carrots.
- Puree them in a blender with a bit of water.
- Freeze in ice cube trays and store in a plastic bag in the freezer.
Add to cooked drained macaroni along with the butter, milk and cheese as usual. The hot noodles melt the cubes fairly quickly, and I think the carrots even make the macaroni taste creamier. You can also add the carrot cubes to spaghetti sauce and whatever else you can think of.
Do you have any tricks that you use on a picky eater?
