Toddler meals seem to be a parents biggest challenge. Baby will often eat veggies purely out of curiosity. Your toddler, however wont eat them simply because she can assert herself now. Sigh…
It does get easier (eventually) but for now you may have to use a few tricks. Most of us know about “hiding” the veggies in things like pasta sauce or in muffins. But sometime the best place to hide them is in plain sight. That’s what this pitta pocket recipe does.
The trick is to first create a sauce or dressing that is super yummy but also healthy. Then chop up the vegetables to a tiny size so that they are not fully identifiable. Finally, get a few things they’ll most likely eat anyway (like quinoa and maybe even a little cheese) and mix EVERYTHING together.
Now, the yummy sauce they want is mixed in with the veggies they can’t identify. In this toddler meal I stuff all the goodies into a wheat pitta pocket, but you could even serve something like this as a “dip dip” with whole wheat crackers or rolled in a tortilla.
This pitta pocket recipe is a lunchbox winner in our house.
