Until recently he ate corn and sweet potato fries or baked sweet potato. That's it. We've just kept putting veggies in front of him and he is finally starting to actuallly try new things. He has decided that broccoli is his new favorite. He'll eat raw carrots. I'm hopeful that a new growing season with a variety of veggies from the farm to pick out at the farmers market will entice him to broaden his veggie horizons!

DS enjoys corn (on or off the cob), broccoli, peas, carrots (raw or cooked), green beans (french and fresh cut), black beans, and black-eyed peas.

So my all-time favorite way to "sneak" nutritious vegetables into a meal is via eggs for breakfast. I nearly puree spinach in a food processor and mix it into some eggs, add some tomato juice and some cheese and scramble it up. Call it "Green Eggs" (Dr. Seuss, of course), and it becomes very appealing to children. DS and I enjoy this frittata-ish breakfast nearly every day.

If it's cooked with a meat dish (pot roast, chicken) OR covered in a sauce (marinara, sesame, etc), then DD will usually eat it! :

Raw/plain veggies are not a big hit with her (DH is the same way)!

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
