So I got Jessica Seinfeld's book "Deceptively Delicious." The concept is basically pureeing fruits and vegetables and hiding them in foods kids will eat. So I decided to give it a go by making her
buttered noodles with pureed yellow squash. It was pretty simple.
Chop it up:
Puree in a mini food processor:
It looked just like regular noodles. (Once upon a time she loved peas, so I always put them in with the noodles in hopes that she will decide she likes them again...)
It was a success! She ate the whole bowl. I am so excited. Next week I'm going to puree some spinach and stick it in the sauce on the pizzas. Jessica Seinfeld even makes brownies with spinach puree. I'm not sure I'm ready to go to that level. But I feel so much better knowing Julia's getting some veggies in her. I may have to try this trick on Mike as well. Don't tell....
