15 Food Ideas for Fussy Eaters

There was a fantastic response to the question on my 4 Kid Friendly Smoothies post “how do you get your kids to eat their fruit and vegetables?” So, I decided to compile the responses together to create a list of ideas for those parents with fussy eaters (I am one of them and I think I’ll be doing some baking tomorrow).

15 Food Ideas for Fussy Eaters

  1. Fruit kebabs
  2. Smoothies
  3. Hidden vegetable sauces
  4. Fruit Muffins
  5. Veggie Muffins
  6. Fresh fruit juice
  7. Homemade soups with dipping bread (for the fussy eaters that love carbs like my toddler)
  8. Mix veggies with vegemite (or something else your child might like)
  9. Fruit on breakfast cereal (e.g. mash banana or berries in porridge)
  10. Baby spinach in Milo Smoothies
  11. Fruit icecream (homemade)
  12. Fruit juice icypoles (homemade)
  13. Homemade pizzas with healthy toppings
  14. Lasagne with hidden veggies
  15. Cakes with hidden vegetables like a chocolate beetroot cake or carrot cake

And don’t forget to serve up fruit and vegetables in a creative and fun way. Try using shape cutters and turn fruit and veggies into crazy faces and animals. Your fussy eater may not like their veggies, but perhaps they may like them when they’re raw and crunchy? Leave a bowl of fruit on the table and see if they help themselves. 

It’s tough having a fussy eater and downright exhausting, but I’m told it will pass. Good luck!

What other food ideas do you have that fussy eaters would love?
