?, our grandson started to get into that bad habit, till he stayed with us for holidays. We added mashed carrots and peas to things like fish cakes and meat balls (rissoles), when we had baked potato, carrots and sweet potato, we would mash his. he now asks to come here Friday nights to Sunday afternoon, he does his homework and any assignments his teacher has given him, and he goes crazy now for stir fry, either with seafood, or poultry or beef, loves the flavor of the vegetables, if there is any left over bok choy, they won't be for long.
You have to take it steady and make it interesting, if your making a tossed salad, make it colorful with shredded carrot, shredded radishes, besides the lettuce and tomato, the vinaigrette, in a canning jar, I mix olive oil, balsamic or red wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard, salt and pepper, lid on and shake it to hell, I dress the salad before serving.
His mother can not believe the transformation, now she asked if we can do the same thing with our gran daughter. As a difference, gran daughter No.2 not even two yet, loves broccoli, peas, carrots. you put her little bowl with minestrone, stand clear she polishes that up and asks for more.
