Hi,



My 5 year old is allergic to cows milk and all soy products.

He is not much of a vegie eater.

He can not dip raw vegies in vegie dip they containe soy products and usualy cows milk?



Does any one have any ideas as to how to get my son to eat vegies?



I give my son vitamins and probiotics to help keep him healthy. But I know he needs more.

try hemp milk it has 50% of recommended amount of omega 3 and 6. less fat than milk. and more calcium than milk too should help with some of the vitamins too it has vitamin d for definite you can buy it from tesco for £1.49 per litre my girls have just started on it and they love it. hope this helps x

She can't have wheat, but corn is fine--thankfully! I don't know why I didn't think of using corn startch! Sometimes it is the obvious that we miss, I guess. :)

Potato woud be a hard allergy, too! My goodness!



If she isn't allergic to corn starch or flour, you could use that to thicken. But. I am sure if you put enough veggies in, it would be thick enough all on it's own!

The soup sounds super good. Too bad my daughter is allergic to potatoes, which by the way, are in everything! It is annoying! Also rice. I hate that rice is in so much. She is allergic to rice.

I make squash soup, pumpkin soup, and carrot/sweet potato soup. Both use white potatoes as the thickener. Basically, you cook the veggies in chicken soup broth (or veggie soup broth), and use your hand blender to make a smooth, creamy-texture soup. My kids, who aren't fond of squash, carrots and sweet potatoes will eat several bowls at a time!



Let me know if you need the recipes!

I put spinach in a smoothie every night. Otherwise, it's a miracle if my son eats any veggies.

I also made sweet potato breads, and zuchini breads.

I like the idea of the Deceptivly Delicious Seinfield book, just use your milk and soy alternatives.

It's amazing our kids still can thrive the way the do with such a narrow diet; kids.

Darn it! I also forgot--make your own popsicles with fruits and veggies or use V8--they have so many flavors now there should be one your son likes! Good luck!

Oh, also try salsa. If you make your own you can add other things into beside the traditional tomatoes, onions and cilantro and you can make it as mild or spicy as your son likes!

Careful with the goats milk. Our allergist said if you are allergic to cow milk the chance you are allergic to other milk is ten-fold and sure enough our daughter can't have goat (or any other animal milk aside from mine) either. I was told that all animal milk is classified as dairy so if you have a dairy allergy it includes the other milk too. If it is strickly a cow allergy though then go ahead and enjoy the goat milk!

My daughter loves avocado and banana mixed together. You blend a half of an avocado with almost a whole banana and then freeze on a popcicle stick. My daughter loves them!! I have heard of others try this for kids who wont eat veggies. He will get essential fatty acids that way. Its a good sweet treat!

Andrea and Nikki



I will give both of these ideas a try.

We hit a high point tonight. Nick ate green beans! :)

It is a start

Thank you both.

I will keep you up dated.

My daughter is addicted to guacamole. I make it myself so it is safe for her and serve it with veggies. She is not even 2 and LOVES it.

How about dehydrated veggie chips or dipping raw veggies in something like an italian salad dressing? I made cupcakes for my son when he was about 2 years old that had spinach and beets ground up and mixed in and he ate them up! What about dipping raw veggies in hummus? How about drinking vegetable juices?
