Veggies for Kids: Moms Speak of Success

Today three Moms wrote of (surprising!) success getting vegetables into their little ones:

  • Meg of Too Many Chefs made kid- and parent-friendly (if a tad messy for toddlers) zucchini muffins
  • Alysha from The Savory Notebook first had luck with a canned vegetable soup and decided to brave a vegetable soup with pesto
  • Sweetnicks' Nick gobbled up a Rachael Ray spinach salad

is a continuing crusade here at A Veggie Venture, a forum for parents wanting to encourage healthful eating habits at home and school. What works for you? What would you like to fix at your own table? Leave a comment, send an e-mail or write your own post -- ideas and links along with kid-tested recipes will be posted in Veggies for Kids.

  1. I found your link to my site through Technorati. What a great idea! I'll definitely report back with more veggie successes with my kids. Two of the latest veggies I've had success with is onions and mushrooms. They both gobbled up the onion soup I made recently (also listed on the site) and have been gobbling the mushroom sautes I've made recently to accompany steak. My next venture - a mushroom soup, probably a bisque. Glad I found your site....

  2. Thanks for including the Spinach Salad link -- I meant to e-mail it to you. Good thing one of us is paying attention! ;)
