Hide Cauliflower in Your Child's Food

Hide Cauliflower in Your Child's Food

Cauliflower has such a mild taste that your kids will not even notice it.

PREPARE THE CAULIFLOWER - Steam the cauliflower and then mash it up with a potato masher. You can freeze or refrigerate any extra you may have. You will only be able to camouflage a small amount, possible a 1/4 cup in your child's food.

BAKED POTATO - Prepare your potato by baking in the oven until soft or in the microwave. Mash the potato while still in the skin. Add in butter and salt to taste. Then add in as much mashed cauliflower as possible without it becoming noticeable.

RICE - Prepare your rice as per the package instructions. I prefer brown rice, it's healthier. Mix in some mashed cauliflower. My kids like ketchup or soy sauce on their rice, which further camouflages the cauliflower.

OATMEAL - Prepare the oatmeal. Preferably steel cut oats. You can make a big pot at the beginning of the week and refrigerate it. Heat up only what you need each day. Mix in some of the mashed cauliflower, try for approximately 25% of the meal. If your child will eat cauliflower without the above camouflages it is best. Try cooking it in a lot of butter or cheese to make it pleasing.

Get the good stuff in their tummies any way you can and if that means that you have to hide cauliflower in your children's food than so be it.
