Get Your Toddler To Eat Vegetables Tips Tricks Recipes

Posted by

It's no secret that many toddlers push vegetables right off their tray. Living through countless "NOOOO's "accidently" spilling plates on the floor and more we have uncovered a thing or two to help your fussy eater.  Here are some quick and easy tips to get your toddler to eat vegetables. Sometimes it's not the battle that needs to change it's just our game plan.

When you can't beat them trick them. :)

For breakfast there is nothing like a great smoothie packed with veggies to help start their day. And it tastes so good they won't even know that there are vegetables in there.

Honey Berry Blast Smoothie:

2 cups mixed berries

1 1/2 cup apple juice

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1 banana 

1/4 cup broccoli

6 asparagus (raw) 

1/4 cup carrots

Blend then add honey to top it off. Super yummy and packed with veggies. 

This recipe can be adjusted to taste as well. More apple juice for a thinner smoothie.

Make It A Game

Cut up celery or carrots into small sticks. Add some peanut butter in one cup and ranch dressing in another.

Tell them to choose Peanut Butter or white sauce. Then ask them to make a loud crunch sound and hi-fi each time they do :)


Before I became a mother I thought this was awful. After I realize it's pure survival.

Sometimes when all else fails I bribe. "Eat all these green beans and I will give you a little bit of your lolipop" Usually does the trick.

Hide Them

Make some scrambled eggs and dice the vegetables super tiny. It's a colorful dish and sometimes they don't even realize they are getting veggies. Great with green or red bell peppers.

Smear Them

You can make a homemade spread with some finely chopped veggies and allow them to spread it over the top of celery or a cracker.

Take a little sour cream and dice veggies into that, or cheese dip. Make it fun and they'll love it!

The number one thing to remember when it comes to getting your toddler to eat vegetables is just keep trying. Eventually they will get it.
