Getting a Toddler to Eat Veggies

My 18 month old is going through a stage where all the veggies wind up on the floor. Because I am always anxious about getting veggies in him, I devised a new way to get them in his mouth!

I bought several popsicle trays at my local dollar store. I pureed fruit, yogurt, and veggies (generally the sweeter ones) together and poured them in the trays. Now after he eats his dinner, he gets a popsicle for dessert-- except he's also getting his veggies! :)

My son loves these, and will excitedly ask for his "sickles."

Great idea I will try this in summer. I also find grilling cheese on toast and spreading a vegetable puree on top also is very well received, a few baked beans in the puree is even better. You can also spread anything else your child is too fussy to eat by itself to prevent food waste.
