Stealth Health: Sneaking Fruits and Veggies into Your Kids' Favorite Foods

I'm not too proud to sneak fruits and veggies into my kids'  meals. They readily eat certain fruits, like strawberries and apples. Carrots are also an easy sell thanks to their dip-ability. And they think it's fun to pick mini tomatoes from our garden (I use the term "garden" loosely since it consists of only a single and lonely tomato plant). But I'm always looking for ways to counteract the way-too-often chicken nugget and French fry consumption. So here are some Stealth Health ideas I've discovered. Am I missing any good ones? Leave your "Stealth Health" strategies and products below in the Comments section! Also, check out an article I found on abut Undercover Veggies Undercover Veggies -
