How do I get more veggies into my child's diet?

If your child rejects a lot of vegetables, try slipping them into food by:
  • Making muffins with your child and adding pumpkin, zucchini or shredded carrots to the muffin mix
  • Tucking a lettuce leaf, a tomato slice or carrot curls into sandwiches
  • Adding chopped spinach or a handful of frozen vegetables to soups, noodles, spaghetti sauce or lasagne
  • Adding chopped tomato or grated carrots to tuna, chicken or pasta salads
  • Cooking frozen mixed vegetables according to the directions and then adding them to store-bought potato salad
  • Making pizza with your child and adding chopped broccoli or spinach to frozen pizza or frozen bread dough topped with tomato sauce
  • Adding chopped broccoli or extra carrots to canned or dried chicken soup
