Vegetable loaded meat sauce. Meat sauces is a great way to sneak in some vegetables into your little ones meals.
Vegetable loaded meat sauce
Slip in some veggies into your little one’s meat sauces by finely grating vegetables. It adds nutrition and flavor. I always encourage parents to serve vegetables without hiding them in their meals but it does not hurt to add extra nutrition into their meals while toddlers establish their likes and dislikes.
You might think that your toddler is a fussy eater but the truth is that “Fussy eating” is basically a verb made up especially for almost all toddlers. While it can be frustrating to continually throw their uneaten food right into the trash can, it is normal for your toddler to love a certain food one week, only to refuse it the next. All you can do is try again in a couple of days or weeks. Your toddler’s taste buds change all the time and so does their love for certain foods.
Fussy eating is simply a phase that most toddlers go through, typically in their second year. So a wise thing to do would be to sneak in as much nutrition as possible in their food, while they learn how to foster a love to veggies! So serve vegetables in plain sight but sneak them into their meals as well, that way you can’t loose.
For those messy meal times we use little chomps overall smocks. Two words. LIFE SAVER simply a must have.
