By preparing a smoothie, you can get at least three fruit servings into the mix. If you're feeling really sneaky, toss in some mint or a handful of spinach which can be pretty unassuming. Soup is a great hiding place as well.

Puree fresh veggies and toss them into a chicken or beef broth. You can also use the pureed veggies in meatloaf or burgers. Some parents even go so far as to add vegetable baby food in sauces or condiments. Top French toast, pancakes or waffles with blended strawberries, blueberries or raspberries. You can even fit vegetables in your desserts. Add prunes or pureed carrots to brownies or squash and zucchini into breakfast muffins. The possibilities are endless. Just get creative in your culinary preparations.
