When you dreamed of life with children, you envision beautiful lifestyle with your well-behaved children (not like those screaming kind you always see at the grocery store! pfft, not your kids!), your kids will be nutritious and delightful, and always eating the beautiful meals you made them, sweetly asking for seconds of their peas & carrots. Reality is more like a hostage negotiation, where you’re actually promising some form of chocolate reward if they take a bite of their veggies. The struggle is real. Your parenting dreams are seemingly slipping away from your grip. Buuuut…maybe there’s another way? Maybe, you can feed your kids all those healthy veggies and nutrients they need, and they won’t even know it! Here’s 10 “sneaky” (but, loving!) suppers you can feed your kids tonite. You’ll feel better for it, and they won’t know the difference!
With carrots and mushrooms cooked right into the sloppy joes, your kids won’t know within all that delicious mess, they’re having a good serving of vegetables, too!

If your house is anything like mine, chicken nuggets are basically their own food group. Pretty hard to shove a carrot in the middle of one without them noticing. This recipe provides you a solution with a dip-able nugget with veggies so small, they just look like colorful flecks!
