For some time I have been lamenting the fact that my Munches don't dig the veggies. They won't even try them yet, they sit on the plate and sometimes turn into weapons at the dinner table. Fed up and feeling like the poor nutrition of my girls was going to land me in Bad Mommy Jail I did something a little desperate last night. I pureed a zucchini and mixed it with whole wheat flour, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, eggs, and baking powder to create pancakes that were not only really, really good, but also packed about a third of a cup of veggie per pancake. Each of the girls ate two of my new invention and I slept well last night, secure in the knowledge that the girls were digesting something good for them.
I have never been a huge fan of tricking kids, I like to be honest and forward with them, but in the face of scurvy I caved and hid some veggies. It turned out okay, because I ate one too, and it's a recipe I am going to make again. So rather than a doctored dish to trick the munches it becomes a healthy addition to our family-meal-go-round (that revolving selection of meals that everyone makes weekly in their home because everyone eats and like them)
What kinds of stealth veggies do you use if any?
