Toddlers not eating any vegetables: what can I do?
We've always required our children to at least try new things. One bite for every year of their age. My husband reminded me that for some of them we would sit with them until they ate it. It's time consuming at the time but worth it in the end.
We offer dips (yogurt, salad dressing, peanut butter, etc).
We always tried to have salad and the little ones get the "crunchies" making it new and fun.
We cut the veggies into sticks, making them a finger food and easier to eat.
I am fortunate to not have experienced this issue as much with the younger children because they see their older siblings, my husband and I eating veggies with no problems. We even have young children who eat mustard and relish!
I also bought the cookbook Deceptively Delicious. It has lots of recipes that hide veggies into foods that look/taste like something you wouldn't normally associate veggies with (meatballs, cake, muffins, spaghetti sauce, etc). I loved the idea, but wasn't overly impressed with the amount of veggies in the recipes. Still good if you have no other option though :)
