Feeding your family well need not be a power struggle at the dinner table. Here is an arsenal of fruit-and-veg goodness to satisfy even the fussiest eater.
Beef and cauli mash shepherd’s pie
Cauli mash. Nobody will suspect a thing…
Baby marrow lasagne
Hmmmm, cheesy, melty deliciousness. If you’re looking for something a little different try this version, which uses baby marrows instead of pasta. You’ll never look back!
Rotolo with burnt sage and lemon
If the lasagne was a hit, try another pasta dish that has hidden leeks and not-so-hidden (but cheesy and delicious) spinach.

Baby marrow fries with garlic mayo
Do you know anyone who can resist a chip-and-dip?
Tenderstem broccoli-and-blue cheese soup
We know. Green is suspicious. But if you chop that broccoli nice and fine and perhaps suggest that this is what the Incredible Hulk eats… then who knows? It’s worth a try (because it’s yum!).
This is a great recipe to get the kids involved with some mushing, mashing and cinnamon-sprinkling. Serve these pampoenkoekies warm with ice cream as a special treat.
Genius banana skin cake with avo frosting
This, in our opinion, is the Trojan horse of hidden nutrition. A cake that incorporates bananas, beetroot peels and carrot peels with an avacado frosting.
Fruit that tastes like toffee. Enough said.
