Re: How do you get a 2 year old to eat?
I'm not sure of everything he eats but what we do in our home [because DS #1 now refuses to eat any veggies] is "hide veggies".
I'll put 1/2-1/2 c. of pureed carrots in our spaghetti sauce with whole wheat noodles.
Or I make whole wheat pancakes with pureed sweet potatoes in the batter along with some cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of pure vanilla extract [kind of tastes like pumpkin pancakes.
Basically what my son does like, I try to incorporate the good stuff without him knowing.
Thankfully he does love about all fruit except grapes!
