Before I had kids, I always said that I would NOT be hiding veggies and fruit in food – I would make those kids eat fruit and veggies and learn to like it! Because I was so wise in the ways of children.
Little Sir actually loves all fruit and will willingly (although sporadically) eat a good deal of veggies. However, he does not eat: meat of any kind, soy, or beans of any kind. Where does he get his protein, you might ask? If you find that out, please let me know. Maybe dairy? (All the natural mamas out there are having heart attacks – truly hardcore “green” and “natural” people say dairy is the devil.) I don’t know how he isn’t dead, actually. Possibly the PediaSure we sneak into his milk helps (and the natural mamas have now left my blog… cause yeah, I know that stuff has sugar).
Here is a recipe I got from my mom in which I hide lentil beans. He really does like muffins so this seems to work well and it they are very yummy!
