Kid friendly vegetable recipes for a PICKY eater?

sasha1 | Dec 30, 200604:43 AM     52

I used to brag to my friends that my little boy would eat anything. He loved salads, sushi, dim sum, hummus, things that other little kids couldn't even pronounce.

Now that he's 4 and impossibly picky, I long for those days. I have a hard time getting any vegetables into him. He might love something for months, only to flip a switch and decide he won't touch it for as long.

I need some ideas - kid tested, particularly if your kid is a picky eater, to get something into his diet that grows on a tree, vine, or bush.

If it helps, he likes (at least today), the flavors of bacon, balsamic, parmesan, prefers his veggies crunchy rather than soft, and won't eat any tomato that isn't in ketchup form.

Thanks!!
