My DD just turned 1 on 9/30. She did great eating her veggies when she was eating baby food. Now that she is wanting some independence and wanting to eat more finger food she isn't wanting to eat her veggies. I have tried cut up steamed carrots, green beans (canned - warm and cold and with butter), peas...and she just pushes them off to the side of her tray and says "no". It's frustrating but I'm trying not to make it a struggle as I've been told once a struggle always a struggle.
Does anyone else have trouble? Any suggestions? Just concerned because I know for a fact that she isn't getting the recommended about.
Also, any meal ideas would be much appreciated. Kind of starting to feel like I'm a short order cook :)
