This is a way to hide some veggies from your toddlers. It requires the use of pureed veggies, specifically carrots and zucchini, although these veggies can be altered. Simply steam the veggies until fully cooked and puree in a blender or food processor for a couple minutes. Voila. Use those in some recipes and your kids will never know they're getting their veggies. :D My daughter loves these for whatever reason--and she's a picky, picky eater. Hope your kids like them, too!
