How can I get my kids to try new foods?

Build on Familiar Tastes

Pre-schoolers often have a few select foods that they like to eat again and again. If your toddler is going through a nothing-but-green peas stage, try mixing them with basmati rice, whole wheat couscous, or alone in a bowl drenched with a nutritious sauce. A little peanut butter mashed with cooked beans may be more acceptable than the beans alone. Adding a bit of fruit juice is another good way to lend familiar flavor to unfamiliar foods.
