Getting my kids to eat their veggies


We're celebrating Breakfast today! The plan is french toast for breakfast, bacon and eggs for lunch, and pancakes for dinner tonight!



The boys love these and what they don't know is that they are eating veggies at the same time! Veggies in French Toast? Yup! I mixed pureed butternut squash in with the eggs, milk. cinnamon. nutmeg and vanilla. I'll can mix a little bit of purred cauliflower in with the scrambled eggs at lunch. It blends right in and you can't taste it! Then tonight for dinner i'll mix canned pumpkin in the pancake batter.

Last night the boys never knew the spaghetti sauce had squash and cauliflower in it and they loved it.

How do you get your kids to eat their vegetables?



Update on Granny. She is still in the hospital and is really sick. She has had three heart attacks so far in the past couple weeks and now has phemonia. Geoff's over visiting with her right now.

This is a picture of our dear Granny, Geoff and Elijah a couple years ago on Geoff's birthday...

Thanks for the update on Geoff's Grandmother. I'm sorry she is so ill but am glad he could go there.

You are sneaky. That is a fabulous way to get some of those veggies into the boys.

I love that photo of Granny...

I am sorry she is so sick - I pray the Lord will either heal her or take her gently....

Love the ideas for how to get them to eat their veggies....
