I don't think that is bad at all. He is going to be hiding the stuff on you in a few years!!! For now....do what works best for you. My dd is similar and seems to like the stuff in pasta sauce too. I am lucky she will eat veggies plain, but on occasion I have to 'flavor' the chicken!

I do the same thing - especially if dd has refused veggies for a day or two... I say what ever it takes. just not plain sugar etc!

You can give him sauces, seasonings, whatever you like. just watch out for the main dangers like nuts, honey, or undercooked foods. My son is the same age and he LOVES spagetti. he also loves his veggies smothered in garlic and olive oil, lol. he even eats a (very occasional) cheese burger from McD's. Try seasoning up his veggies with some olive oil or b___ter and a little seasoning. Go easy on salt products if you can. Mason LOVES his veggies, but if I give them to him plain he will spit them right out.

I think this is just fine. I know a lot of people who have to give their children food with ketchup. As long as they are getting their veggies I say amen! Plus, tomato sauce isn't bad...it's "tomato" sauce. You might even find a sugar free sauce if you are worried about him having the sugar in the sauce that makes it sweet. However I will tell you, if its sugar free, its most likey sweetened with Splenda or something else....

I think waht you are doing is just fine. MY dd (14.5 months) is practically vegetarian.She eats very little meat and only with a lot of begging. Oddly enough she loves all fruits and veggies and absolutely hates tomato sauce...go figure!
