Hello

I suggest that you prepare some vegetable purée to put on the rye bread, e.g. made of avocado, peas, broccoli, seasoned with some onion, thyme, oregano or similar. This way I guess your daughter will eat some vegetables for lunch.

Make vegetable bread or vegetable buns, i.e. use carrots, spinach or similar. Children usually accepts "hidden" vegetables in the bread.

It is a good idea to offer your children some fresh vegetables when you are preparing the dinner, as children are often hungry at this hour, use e.g. peas, maize, carrot, red pepper etc., and you will often experience that this way the children eats some vegetables, and you will not have to worry that your daughter does not eat vegatables for dinner.

"Hide" vegetables in the meat sauce, lasagna etc. It sometimes works, however, children are usually very much alert - you will just have to try and see how it progresses :o)

I hope this is helpful and I wish you and your daughter the best of luck:o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
