    I don't think its a good idea to make a practice of sneaking fruits and vegetables into other foods. It desn't create good food habits. As a food educator and writer this is an issue I have been thinking about a lot. I think it is possible to never have to say eat your vegetables again. That's why I wrote The ABCs of Fruits & Vegetables and Beyond. Parents and teachers interested in getting kids to develop friendly feelings towards fruits and vegetables should take a look at a new book called The ABCs of Fruits and Vegetables and Beyond. Out only a few months and already being bought in quantity for class use. Suited for kids of all ages as it is two books in one children first learn their alphabet through produce poems and then go on to more mature activities. It is coauthored by best-selling food writer David Goldbeck (me) and Jim Henson writer Steve Charney. Say hello to us at HealthyHighways.com

    I add baby spinach to fruit smoothies. If you add blueberries, the color of the berries conceals the green color of the spinach, and kids never know they are in there. I don't find that you can taste the spinach at all when it's combined with the fruit.
