If your family struggles to eat enough veggies, there are simple and easy ways to sneak them into almost any meal. The American Heart Association suggests the following to increase vegetable intake: shred veggies such as beets, parsnips, and zucchini and add them to pasta, baked goods, or other favorite recipes; substitute cooked, ground mushrooms for about half of the ground meat usually used in food items such as meatballs, meatloaf, or burgers; cook and puree butternut squash, carrots, or sweet potatoes and add to macaroni and cheese; puree your favorite beans into a nutritious dip and serve with whole-grain crackers or baby carrots; and blend a brightly colored, nutritious smoothie with a banana, milk or yogurt, spinach, sweet potatoes, or beets.
