How To Hide Veg In Your Toddler’s Meals | Guest Post With Mummy & Liss

Are you struggling to get your toddler to eat their greens? Here are FIVE sneaky ideas that I have for hiding vegetables in your toddlers meals.

  • Homemade pizza is a brilliant way of hiding vegetables in your toddlers meals and they can even get involved themselves. Add vegetables to the toppings, for example: mushrooms, onions, peppers etc.
  • Include Snacks in your toddlers diet – Let your little ones explore with carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, pepper sticks etc. You can also encourage them to dip it in hummus or a similar dip. Quite often we make homemade potato salad and coleslaw and my little one loves it.
  • Potato & carrot waffles – Asda sell packets of mini potato & carrot waffles for just £1 in the freezer section. These taste so similar to the normal potato waffles that my little one doesn’t know the difference.
  • Vegetable fingers – These are just like fish fingers but are jam packed with healthy vegetables such as sweetcorn, carrot, peas, potato and onions.
  • Hide vegetables in spag bol – Add mushrooms, onions, peas, carrots & grated courgettes. You could also swap chips for sweet potato chips which are just as nice.

Try and include vegetables in every meal whether its a big variety or just a spoonful of peas. We have a set of children’s divider plates, they have three compartments. If we are having potatoes, meat and veg for dinner I will put each food in the different compartments. In my opinion, this makes meal times a little bit more fun for toddlers.
