I don't blame Buddy though, I grew up in the South and discovered that the only way I truly enjoy to eat veggies is soaked in butter, dipped in ranch, or sprinkled liberally with salt. Jon on the other hand just likes the taste of the vegetable by itself. Sometimes, hiding the vegetables in our dishes is as much for me as for Buddy. On the plus side, Buddy ate his entire soft taco tonight and had a full serving of peas and carrots without blinking an eye!
A few examples of where I hide veggies:
Lasagna, Spaghetti, or anything with a tomato sauce -- finely diced or pureed carrots
Enchiladas -- finely diced broccoli and carrots
Tacos -- finely diced carrots in the meat and pureed peas in the soft taco
Grilled cheese -- finely diced broccoli
BibleStoryPrintables.com that print on one sheet of paper and fold into a book. (How to Fold Tutorial) I printed them in black and white and plan on coloring them ahead of time or even allowing him to color as he reads on the plane. If you choose, the books can be printed in color also. Buddy just was not thrilled about coloring today.
If you have any great ideas of you get your children to eat vegetables or activities for travel, I'd love to hear from you in the comment section!
