When my big kids were little, I used to make what I called "meatballs with stealth vegetables". I used to chop away at a mess of vegetables until they were an unidentifiable puree, and add them to the chopped meat. Chopping all of those vegetables was a big job. It was worth it though, because my not particularly vegetable enamored kids would gobble up those meat balls. Yes, they knew the vegetables were in there. Eventually they began to request particular stealth veggies. My older son was particularly fond of winter root vegetables, like parsnips and parsley root. Often the vegetable content was greater than the meat content. But my kids ate away.
