My three year old son will not eat any vegetable that is green. No green beans, peas, peppers, brocolli, nothing... does anyone have any good ideas what I can do that will get him to eat those?

Thanks for the ideas... I have that cookbook already and love the recipes out of it... I have even used the puree idea to make my own baby food.

It sounds gross, but works! :) I have a preemie that has the same problem and my solution was to buy fruit flavored yogurt and mix in pureed vegatables (or a jar of baby veggies). After mixing, I'd taste-test. If the veggie taste is apparent, I'd add some vanilla or a little sugar. I also on occasion mix veggies with vanilla pudding, not AS healthy, but also works. I'd start with a smaller amount of veggies and over time add more. If the color is still a problem, try adding some blue food coloring, my kiddo's not a fan of green either! Also, I have a really cool book that I think you could benefit from, it's called Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. It's a recipe book ALL about sneaking vegetables into every kind of meal! :) Good luck! I hope this helps you!!! :)
