As babies, we feed them jarred fruits and veggies. We may even puree them ourselves for the little darlings. As they grow and start eating solid foods, sometimes they give us a hard time when it comes to eating healthy.
Here are a few simple tips to help the little ones to eat their fruits and veggies:
Get them used to the flavors again by starting from scratch. Give them the pureed baby food again!
Prepare homemade fruit pops using fresh fruit. Children generally enjoy ice pops!
Smoothies! You can sneak all kinds of good things into these! Mix in fruits and spinach for a healthy treat.
Bake with veggies. Make up a batch of zucchini bread or muffins. Get creative: bake up carrot muffins, zucchini carrot muffins or banana bread.

Cook with veggies. Making meatballs, meat loaf or burgers? Chop up peppers, broccoli, carrots or any other vegetables you enjoy and cook them right into the meat.

These are a few things you can do right away to ensure your baby is getting important vitamins and nutrients every day.
