Expatriate international health insurance policyholders wishing to encourage healthy eating habits in their children may want to consider the different ways to put vegetables in meals.
Senior lecturer in nutrition, physical activity and public health at the University of Bristol Sue Baic said pureeing these foods and hiding them in dishes "can be a bit deceptive".
However, research from Penn State University found preschool pupils fed this way consumed 11 per cent less calories and twice the number of vegetables during the day than they normally would.
It is "really important" to get infants used to eating healthy products, as it becomes more difficult for people to begin to do so at an older age, Ms Baic noted.
She advised against blending vegetables and concealing them, explaining this results in young people who do not actually enjoy consuming these foods.
Recipes such as cottage pies, chow meins, stir fries and pastas can have "really obvious" healthy products in, Ms Baic added.
Children "don't have to eat huge amounts" of vegetables but should at least try them, the expert declared.
