I am lucky that my 20 month old loves vegetables. But there are occasions when she refuses. I don't worry too much. Be creative with your toddler's appetite when it comes to veggies.
Tomato sauce: Spread on an english muffin or pizza crust.
Choose bright colored fruits like papaya, nectarines, apricots. Try looking for a purple potato and mash or bake fries. Try smoothies. This is a great way to get antioxidants in your toddler.


If you get the child involved in helping prepare the food they might be more inclined to eat them.also theres an awesome cook book called toddler cafe by Jennifer Carden, it has great ideas for creativing great healthy habits for them


So I know a few moms have been having issues getting their babes to eat veggies . I just found these new Gerber fruit and veggie blends ( oh dear yes I use Gerber baby food , not homemade !! LOL ) Noah loves them and its great for getting them to eat more veggies !! His favorite is the pear zucchini corn .


Root vegetables... : Beets, parsnips, carrots, sweet potato, yam... I cubed them, tossed them in olive oil, garlic, salt and balsamic vinegar... I roasted them at 425 for about 30 minutes.. they got a little crispy and chewey on the edges.. the balsamic made it sweet with flavor and it was Awesome...

We all ate a bowl of it...
