When Your Child Is A Fussy Eater

Do you have a fussy eater in the family? Growing up I loved most foods. In fact I don’t recall never liking anything really!

My brother on the other hand was one of the fussiest eaters I’ve known. He doesn’t like anything green or veg and even at 30 years of age he is still the same. He just hates vegetables. 

Over the years my mum got very clever at hiding goodness in the meals. Here are a few tips to get kids to eat extra veg

Grate your vegetables.

Grated veg can be hidden in many meals from grated carrot to grated zucchini.

It’s a great way to add more nutrition into your kids meals and you can even freeze frozen grated veg and take out a handful at a time to add to your meals. 

Hide Fruit And Vegetables In Muffins

You can hide fruit and vegetables in muffins and pancakes. It’s not only a way to get your kids eating more of their 5 a day, but add’s nutrition to a tasty snack. 

Use Cauliflower Rice and Zoodles

Use vegetable alternatives to rice and noodles. This may take some getting used to but with a tasty sauce and topping, you never know how well this will go down with the kids.
