    actually, we've solved MANY of these problems.

    1) used to have an arguement EVERY SINGLE meal regarding veggies... then bought DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS and haven't argued since. we started with puree-ing the veg and hiding them and still do it, but my VERY stuborn son has now accepted the fact that he MUST eat them and we haven't had a fight in about 3 months!

    2)kids know the routine, we occasionally shake it up with 10 minutes of "movie time" in mummy's bed with mummy instead of stories.

    3)who cares, so long as THEY (not the helper) clean them up before bedtime?

    4) who cares? my son goes out in spiderman & superman costumes all the time... daughter has only recently asked to wear her minnie mouse costume out. really, does it matter?

    DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS by JESSICA SEINFELD

    i first saw her on oprah. she uses veg puree in cooking regular food.

    ie. dipping homemade chicken nuggets in puree cauliflower or broccoli or sweet potatoes before you bread them (they are yummy!)

    using cauliflower puree in chocolate cake (you REALLY cannot taste it!)

    cauliflower or sweet potato or carrots in mac & cheese

    etc.

    the idea is that you KNOW they are getting SOME veg (maybe not a full serving, but at least some). she uses puree in EVERYTHING, including cake icing, hot chocolate and other yummies.

    since we started doing it, my helper has put it in almost everything for my kids. i stopped arguing with my son and he started eating everything, including vegetables!

    once the fight was gone, he ate them! he still occasionally says, "no veg", but when i say, "yes, veg" he eats it!

    I like the superbaby food so my toddler is used to vege taste......but yes, i love DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS too. I have a few copies at home, brand new, never used. I stock it to give to friends. If anyone is interested, i can sell it cheaply. (sorry rani, just want to help)
