my ds is always hungry but loves pasta, bread, cream cheese etc.. all 'white' foods. I try and make him up nice dishes e.g, tomato sauces with hidden veg but he spots this a mile off! I am a vegetarian and eat later than ds which makes things trickier. Any ideas?

My son is very similar but has always loved broccoli and cauliflower cheese pasta.... SOOO easy too! I just boil frozen B&C & pasta shapes up together, once boiled mix together breaking up the veg, add grated cheese, black pepper and nutmeg! I make batches and freeze! You can also just use cauliflower if the green pits him off!

Also try sweet potato and normal mash, sometimes I even add red lentils for some protein as it cooks.... Then cheese on top!

Does he eat scrambled egg? I often chop up tomato or cucumber into small pieces and mix it in. What about veg purées spread on toast?

As for meat, will he eat chopped white fish in pasta?
