Fruit and Veggie Kid


Fruits and Veggies.....sometimes are two of the most dreaded words to kids. What is the secret to making sure that your child gets enough? What if your child is a picky eater?
Thankfully, I was one of the lucky parents and my little one loved fruit and veggies. I do however think more than luck played into it. My husband and I love veggies and I think that modeling good eating habits made it easier when it came to helping my daughter develop good eating habits as well. Did we ever hide or sneak fruits and veggies into our little one's diet. Well... depends on what you call sneak! LOL We used fruit as a treat or dessert making it a fun food. We also used playful tactics such as identifying our veggies with their matching Veggie Tales characters.
Do your kids eat their fruits and veggies? Do you have to sneak fruit and veggies into their diet?http://www.littleblends.com/ Has come up with some great foods that do the sneaking for you so that your picky eater can have their needed fruits and veggies.
