My daughter doesn't like much veggies other than peas. So, I usually baby bullet them to oblivion before giving them to her(seems to help), is that okay to still be feeding a 14 month old mushed foods? Probably a silly question, but just wanted to know what other moms are doing. Thanks.

I just mushed them a little with a fork, flattened them really. Then they can still finger feed and they are easier to control in the mouth. I bet if you tried more, you'd find she likes a lot. There are a lot of veggies out there that might not come to mind when you are planning meals.

Dice them very small and put them in stews, chilis, soups, burgers, loafs, etc. I don't think it's bad if your 1 year old won't eat whole veggies, as long as she is getting the nutrients. And peas are very healthy! My 12 month old used to LOVE whole steamed broccoli, carrots and green beans, now he won't touch them. The only veggies he will eat are peas, cucumbers and bell peppers. So I made him black bean burgers with very very small diced celery and carrots and he gobbled them up! :)

Try cooking carrots till they are soft you could chop them into little cubes.Or does she like spinage?my son loves spinage and its healthy.You could also make mashed potatos mixed with spinage or carrots.

Have you tried fresh veg vs. canned?
At that age my daughter wouldn't touch canned veg, but would eat the same vegatables in their fresh form.
She also loved peas and lima beans! Might give some "weird" veg a try and see if she likes other things.

Good luck! I know it's tough to get them to eat vegetables. If all else fails....hide them in other food that she likes!!
