MAYDAY MAYDAY: How do I get my toddler to eat vegetables? I put them on her plate all the time. Sometimes she takes a bite or two. But not often. I am trying to remember the whole ‘my job is to offer the food and her job is to eat it’ thing. She loved Brussels sprouts red pepper and spinich purees as a baby. What gives??

Have I broken the baby somehow?

  1. “She wanted them, but I ate them.”😂😂 enjoyed reading this. Especially since I don’t have kids yet, I know it’s going to be expensive raising a child!

  2. Two year olds have very strange eating habits. And I don’t think it’s the taste of the vegetables, but the texture. Try smoothies with a fruit thrown in to give it that sweet taste. Maybe strawberries?

  3. So she gets mahimahi?! That must’ve been in FL! I am jealous of Babystar! And also: Starbucks charges $2.99 for a freaking fruit cup?! They are making bank, fo’ sure!!
    Really, the only surefire way I have to get my kids to eat veggies is to serve them first at lunch and dinner. It’s the only thing on their plate and they’re hungry, so 75% of the time they’ll eat it. When that’s done or on the floor (in Baby’s case), I serve the rest of the meal, typically keeping things like pasta or rice or bread last. Other than that, try cooking a veg if she’s only had it raw, or vice versa. Try serving carrot sticks or cauli or broccoli with hummus? or what about grilled veggies on an kabob? Brushing it with a vinaigrette works for us. Good luck – I 100% feel your pain.

  4. I found that the more grains Wallace ate, the fewer vegetables he ate. Comparing nutritional value, I went with cutting grains to almost nothing and trying a million ways to get him to eat vegetables. Pureed in smoothies is great, chicken poppers, homemade pasta sauce with more vegetables blended in, things to dip in like hummus and ranch, and sauces and seasoning like terryaki. As of now at 4yo, he eats sweet potatoes in various forms, spinach in smoothies, carrots cooked or raw, broccoli cooked, orange cauliflower (his favorite color). He will often try a vegetable I have and spit it out, which is progress at least. At 1-3, I would give him his vegetable first while I was cooking the rest of the meal. He’d chow down on broccoli and then be ready for whatever protein and grain I had for him.

  5. I like all of these ideas and especially the part about giving her the veggies first! I already do smoothies (for myself and the teens but Babystar is now starting to like them). However, she is the only toddler in the world that doesn’t like to dip her food. Weirdo baby.🙃
