  • Apparently they are very good at extracting what they need from what they eat, recipes with hidden veg are great or gummi vitamins if you are really worried

  • It’s not always about veggies. Best to ask the Dr about their growth rates.

  • children get nutrients from many foods. I hope all is working out well

  • Drag out the blender and crank out some smoothies! I’m sure your child is getting enough anyway though!

  • How old is your child? I’m pretty sure vita gummies are only recommended for children 2years and up. I have also heard they contain a lot of sugar

  • Vita tummies r great. Easy way to get the goodness

  • Try vita gummies there excellent and in lolly form then they will be getting alot more nutrition :D

  • Be creative with veggies pour creamy cheese sauce over it, cut carrot sticks use a dip, even hot chips at least there getting potato

  • Grating veggies in pastas, sausage rolls is a good idea & a children’s multi vitamin may be the way to go & will give you some peace of mind maybe.

  • If you are of the sneaking veggies school – soups , meatloaf. hamburgers, spaghetti bol all can hold a host of veggies for the unsuspecting and none the wiser child…

  • If you still give them formula that has everthing they need.

  • I sneak veggies into everything, I just cook them and blend them into most meals

  • just hide the veggies dont forget u can try juice and other snacks too

  • I sneak alot in or use vitamins

  • I would just continue to try sneak veg in to things but so long as there isn’t copious amounts of junk and there is some real nutrition in there you should be ok.
