If you are a parent or in charge of making kids eat you will feel me when i say it can be really hard and frustrating to get them to eat what you want them to eat.
My kids – particularly Big P has always been a very picky eater. He likes what he likes and he always has hated mixed textured foods. Mixing textures like creamy and crunchy or smooth or ones that make “pop” noises will always lead him to refusing his dinner. Babe E and Princess R are both a little bit picky the same way but not as bad as Big P.
Getting any of them to eat veggies can be hard. Especially if we are having something like pasta or burgers. Pasta usually has the veggies in the sauce/noodle and burgers will usually be topped with some form of veggie. Kids will not allow this in their dinner.
So being all “mom” I got worried that they were not getting enough veggies. I was tired of the fight I always got when i put the veggies in their dinner.
That was until I decided to trick the. To be sneaky & they have yet to figure this out.
I became best friends with my food grater.
Using most types of veggies like onions, sweet peppers, carrots, celery and i put those grated veggies in everything. Spaghetti, hamburgers, pizza are all ones that i have tried and my VERY picky kids have not noticed and will eat. Big P even hates carrots but has yet to complain.
It has been a life saver for me. There are some veggies that my kids will always seem to eat (like broccoli, go figure) but they need variety. No more food battles and no more worrying about my kids not getting enough veggies.
