I agree with most. If a child is taught to eat the veggies from a young age, and don't give in to them...just cause they hear their friends say they hate veggies they will eat them. The norm. seems to be onions and mushrooms for most kids.... but if you teach a child to be a picky eater, they will be. I make make spinach, carrot,squash,add bacon bits and cheese to mashed potatoes frequently for a change. I've gotten more into eating yams now...for the health benefit. Always use lots of color when serving your meals. I had to laugh too, when I read about cutting the potatoes, when it just talked about not doing so. Go figure.

Anyone notice the irony of this recipe? Notice it says to cube the potato. Yet the page that linked this recipe stated not to cut up your potato when boiling as it cuts back on the nutrients available. Sorry just thought that was funny.

I can not understand parents who are hiding the vegetables. You are just giving in and starting the foundation for an unhealthy lifestyle in a childs future.

We shouldn't "hide" vegetables from our children. If you introduce and encourage kids to eat veggies, they can learn to love them to!

My girls LOVE these things. No hiding necessary. The bit of mustard tip would give it a nice little kick. Try the same thing but with couscous instead of potatoes for another variation.
