If you have any ideas for me in my endeavor to get healthy foods into Joe's little tummy, let me know!

Joe can be a pretty picky eater. There is not one vegetable that he particularly likes. But, I have a solution. What toddler/kid doesn't like cheesy quesadillas? Take a whole wheat tortilla, add your choice of shredded cheese and throw in any kind of chopped vegetable that you please. Add meat and/or beans if you choose, too! I've added spinach, corn, carrots, tomato, avocado, green beans, chicken, beef, bell peppers, black beans etc. Cook it on both sides in a sauté pan until the cheese is melted and you are good to go. (I usually use a little bit of olive oil, but butter or cooking spray would work, too!) I've also made a fruity quesadilla (because he doesn't always like fruit, either.) I spread some cream cheese on the whole wheat tortilla and add any chopped fruit you like. Joe likes honey in his, too. Quesadillas are great ways to hide healthy food!
