I've been browsing this board for a while and get overwhelmed just reading about meal planning (I'm certainly not a good planner LOL). I am really struggling with dinners for my picky 1.5 and 3 yo. I used to do a lot of meat sauces and sneak veggies in but now 3 yo won't eat meat sauce! I would appreciate it if someone could give me a few simple nutritious dinner suggestions that I can prepare ahead. 3 yo loves corn and peas, won't eat potatoes. 1.5 yo does not like any veggies except carrots and potatoes on occasions. I'm going to try pureed veggies rather than mini chopped ones to see if I can get away with it. They both love fruit. TIA.

Any good cookbooks out there for kids meals?

I puree veggies and put them in everything. My toddler loves spaghetti sauce I make from scratch with tons of veggies in it. I make bean burritos with the veggies as well. I usually make batches of those and heat them up as needed. I have a great ww waffle recipe I even stick them in.

He'll only eat potatoes and carrots so I hide veggies in as much as I possibly can.
