You can also sneak them into foods. If you puree them and put them with other foods she will never even know they are there. 4 eggs....2 TBS sweet potato and 1/4 tsp cinnamon = french toast mixture

scrambled eggs...2 eggs, 4 egg whites, 1/4 c sour cream, 1/2 c califlower puree,2 tbs parmsesan cheese. mix all together and fry.

Have you tried gving them to her cooked and raw? It could be a texture thing. My daugher hated green beans at first but once she had some fresh ones that were boiled just for a little bit, she couldn't get enough of them. You could steam baby carrots for about 20 mins to soften them up, plus it makes them sweeter. I also found that dips are really good for getting my daughter to try new things. I saw some where and they mentioned putting powdered drink mix in plain yogurt to make healthy dips for kids.

Good luck, and feel free to pass along how you got your daughter to eat meat, my 21 month old will barley touch it in any form

One way that helped me with my oldest daughter was making a game out of eating. We played choo-choo train, and I used to sit at the table with her so she could see that mommy had the same thing on her plate. Sometimes when kids see others eating the same thing, they want to try it too. Having play dates could help encourage the situation as well. When I had other kids over, they would eat EVERYTHING on their plates and say they were BIG KIDS cause they finished, so my daughter wanted to be a "BIG KID" too. Try different things and see what works for your princess....

My kids love vegetable soup, and they eat it so much better than just plain veggies on their plate. I made green beans (canned) the other day with butter, a dusting of onion salt, and bacon, fried just long enough to heat them up, and they ate those up too.

We used to go to Ruby Tuesday, and they had fresh peas & lima beans on the salad bar, and my son LOVED them. I don't think they were cooked.
