Hi Barbara here with a healthy potato recipe.
I have taken to hiding food groups in my sons meals. In my meat sauce I will put a lot of finely ground up carrot, I put ground up beats in his chilli, pureed sweet potato in his mac and cheese. It's one of the only times I feel good about being a liar. Michael absolutely eats with his eyes first, and his eyes dont like the site of vegetables. Cauliflower is so incredibly healthy, I found the easiest way to hide it in food, through the only way my son will eat potatoes- mashed.
