Quoting Parthena:

You can disguise the foods. That's one of my favorite things to do and add them to favorite foods. Another thing that has worked for us is making them into a game. My son loves trains so we cut whatever food it is up and line them up like a train. We then 'race" to see who will eat the engine, gondola car, etc. Funny thing is that my son came up with this game.


The disguising the veggies is the best thing for me. But there is still a few we likes as baby food but won't eat because of the texture. But hearing about the train game for food, I think I'm gonna give that a try. Good Luck!
