Pureed vegetables disappear into more easily-accepted foods
Liz is doing what she must to get the vegies in:
My one-year-old is going through some sort of regression that only permits him to eat macaroni & cheese (with homemade cheese sauce I learned from Parent Hacks, thanks!), yogurt, applesauce and crackers. I was having a nervous breakdown because of the lack of veggies in his diet, but every time I offered them they'd end up in my lap.
Out of desperation I went back to my days of making baby food, and steamed and pureed a bag of organic frozen veggies (carrots, peas, green beans, cauliflower...) and froze them in ice cube trays. I store the cubes in freezer bags and now I just defrost one or two and mix into his apple sauce, yogurt, even on the mac and cheese. He doesn't notice the veggies are in there, so he eats every last bite!
Wow. My four year-old is STILL in that mac and cheese "phase." Maybe I'll try this, too.
