I agree with Got Garlic's thoughts.

My parents gave up on my brother who refused to eat meat or vegetable matter from the age of 7 through HS. He was shamed into adopting better eating habits when he was in college. He ate pretty much nothing but breakfast cereal and egg noodles for 10 years and he's fine now.

MY kids have been eating mushrooms for years, and just found out about it recently.
When I make lasagna , And i brown up the meat ( fake meat morning star farms crumbles), I always take whatever left over mushrooms I have, chop them up finely, and brown them with the " Meat". They are similar in color , and get covered with layers of noodles and cheese anyway. I think they actually would have missed it , if I stopped using them.

That being said, my kids have been eating veggies for ever ( being vegetarian, they didn't have too many other options).

I agree with the be honest don't worry crowd.

If your son has an older friend that he idolizes, every young boy seems to have one, invite him for dinner, put a bug in his ear and serve lots of vegetables!

Good luck!

A friend of mine had a toddler who would only eat bread. She made all of the bread for her family. She added pureed vegis to the bread. She also made bread with fruit.

Mince eggplant, or aubergine as I know it, complete with skin,( very important) with onion,spices and mixed herbs and make sausages as you would if using meat. I looks like meat, tastes like meat and packed full of goodness. Another time try using other veg in with the eggplant such as carrots, courgettes, but it is something to do with the purple colour that seems to con kids all the time......!

I know a couple that would color the food with food coloring to make it more fun.
Like blue mashed potato's.
Their kid loved the smurfs and he loved blue mashed potato's. He did not like or eat regular mashed spuds.
You can see this was a long time ago. Do they even have "Smurfs" anymore?

He wouldn't know the sausages are made of veggies, but in fact these sausages are better since they somehow contain nutrients found in vegetables. I'm sure your son will not know the difference since the sausage are made to taste like meat.
