Broccoli, carrots, and zucchini

How do you make them more appetizing? That is my question for today. One of my goals for this year is to try to sneak more veggies into my kids (as well as for Rob and I). I realized the other day, that they do great with fruits, but when it comes to vegetables, we're failing miserably. For so long I was too busy trying to get a handle on the whole speech/hearing thing that I didn't really worry too much about expanding our food horizons. I made sure they got a multi-vitamin, and felt 'somewhat' o.k. with it. Now it has come back to haunt me a bit. Jake will not eat ANY vegetables. If anyone has a great suggestion for enticing kids to try vegetables, I'd love to hear it.

Still no implant.....seriously, how can it be lost in our house? I used to worry about it getting lost at the park, or out on the soccer field. Silly me!

What about zucchini bread or carrot cake? I know they come with sugar, but at least there is one way to get veggies in them! I'm really lucky and my 2 year old loves broccoli, lol. I might not be so lucky with Nolan, though. I guess we'll have to wait and see!

That's a great idea! I love zucchini bread. Thanks for the idea.

did you check all of your dirty clothes...I say that because I found a processor stuck inside the sleeve of my daughter's shirt once.

I have the new-ish cookbook called Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld and it's really cool. Ethan loves the banana bread (with pureed cauliflower) and the oatmeal blueberry bars (with pureed spinach)-and he's a kid with serious eating issues who won't so much as touch a veggie!
