    Healthy, but quick recipes which my son should not say a NO.

    Every day, I prepare one thing or the other food items for my 3.5 years old son. But 90% of them were straightly rejected by him even without tasted. He is too picky and choosy. He will say a no by seeing the colour and texture itself.

    He likes all those junk burger and pizza items. Any tips to help me are highly appreciated.

    Healthy pizza.   You can take canned pizza sauce, puree extra veggies into it and he'll probably not notice,   Use real cheese, add turkey pepperoni.

    Use a pre-done Boboli crust.   This is great because he can help make it and it bakes super fast.

    Put a pepperoni smiley face on the pizza.  Let it be fun.

    The Bobili crust is pre-done so it's not greasy and you can use scizzors to cut it up into individual pieces before baking.  Only make what he'll eat in a sitting.

    No waste.  Start to finish, it's done in less than 15 minutes.

    This will have dairy, veggies, low-fat turkey pepperoni and not be greasy.   Kids will usually eat it.

    I'm a texture eater.  Some textures i just can't put in my mouth, gag reflex.   

    Picky eaters like I was as a kid do not like casseroles, loafs, things with shredded anything. 

    The rule is two bites from anything new, if he still hates it then it's a no go.

    Try sour apples or tart apples and low fat caramel dip as a snack.  A little bit of caramel goes a long way and gets him to eat apples.

    Involve him in picking and preparing the meals. 

    And remember two bites of the offending food before its on the no-eat list.

    Kids love spaghetti. Add mashed boiled carrots into your tomato sauce, or add half-cup of fresh carrot juice into the sauce, top with lots of cheese and voila! Hope this trick will win your toddler :smile goodluck!
