I am always looking for new ways to “hide” vegetables in Will’s food. He likes vegetables for the most part but sometimes just won’t eat them. We all have our days, especially toddlers!
Meatballs are easy to make, you can freeze them and add “sneaky” things in, like veggies.
Veggies are important for children (adults too!) and their development and growth so if I can find a way to “sneak” them into a meal I jump at the chance. Turkey, Carrot and Zucchini Meatballs are family friendly and something you can easily add into the rotation with variations.
Other vegetables you could add in to the meatballs:
- Grated mushroom
- Grated cauliflower
- Small peas
- Diced peppers (red, orange, yellow or green)
- Diced tomatoes

How do you get your kids to eat more vegetables? Do you have tricks to sneak them into meals?
