If you have a picky eater or two in your household, you know how challenging it can be to introduce new, healthy items to the menu. If it’s not buttered noodles or dinosaur chicken nuggets, it might as well be garbage.

But did you know there could be a few ways to trick them into eating veggies?

The same child who turns up her nose at leafy greens is probably more than happy to gobble up a big slice of cake or a few crispy tater tots.

When it comes to tricking your kids into eating veggies, it’s just a matter of disguising all those healthy vitamins and nutrients as “kid-friendly” chow.

If you need a formula to reference, just check out these Secret Zucchini Brownies. The idea is to chop up the “gross” veggies really fine, and disguise it in all the chocolatey goodness of the brownie batter, with your kids none the wiser.

The same formula can be used over and over again. Just mix-and-match one kid-friendly food with one healthy veggie they don’t love to eat; the combinations are endless!

For instance, boost breakfast and add a hefty helping of vitamin A by mixing some canned pumpkin puree into the egg batter for a batch of French toast. Or make dessert the healthiest meal of the day by concealing mineral-rich beets in decadent red velvet cake.

Check out the video below for tips on pulling off these two hidden veggie dishes, plus learn how to apply the same principles to tater tots and guacamole!
