Parents of picky eaters know getting vegetables into kids' mouths can require the negotiation skills of a SWAT team. But no one enjoys wrangling at the dinner table, even when he or she really wants to instill a love of wholesome foods. We asked the moms of some especially finicky kids to help by sharing their time-tested, stealthy tips and recipes.

“My favorite sneaky kid recipe is for smoothie Popsicles. You can sneak pretty much anything healthy into a smoothie, and when you make it into a Popsicle, it becomes a portable, nutritious snack. I usually add plain yogurt and soymilk, fresh or frozen berries, and bananas. Pour the mixture into ready-made Popsicle molds, and you have an easy snack that can even be breakfast to go!”
