Fruits, veggies and good stuff, OH MY!!

I would love some advice on getting my 6 year old (Isaac) to eat fruits and veggies. The only fruit I can get him to touch on occasion is an apple and other than that, he hates everything. He won't eat any veggies at all unless I hold him down and shove it down his throat, not that I've actually done that, lol.

Isaiah eats all that stuff with no problem, but not Mr. Stubborn Isaac. Any tips would be great!

Have you tried putting a cheese sauce on it, or mixing it in with mac n cheese or other foods

I agree with the cheese sauce. I used it to get Dylan to eat broccoli. Now he enjoys it plain. But you can make a cheese sauce out of cheese made from 2% milk, so it is lower in fat.


You could also try to let them season the veggies themselves. Dylan likes to do that and then he eats it. Thats how he eats cauliflower.

RANCH DRESSING MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER!;)

You can puree some and mix them in soups/sauces? I saw that on tv when someone was promoting a book on this very subject. Can't remember the book though!

My kids do really well with veggies when they are little, seems like as they get older, they like them less and less. I don't give them a choice. I make them eat the veggies. I'm a mean mommy lol!

Wasn't there some kind of controversy with that book and some other lady who claimed that Seinfeld's wife stole it from her?

Have you tried v8 fruit juices? They are SOOOOOO yummy and have a full serving of vegetables. You can't taste it at all and I would buy it all the time if I could but Rob won't drink water so it would be gone in a day if I bought it lol.
