Veggie combo juices for a 2 year old picky eater?

About a week ago, we got a Juicer and it has been fun coming up with new drinks with extra veggie servings for our 2 year old, being the picky eater.

Has any one here tried it and do you have any veggie combo recipes? My son's favorite is the carrot, greens...

It is fun to play with the different combinations, and would be cool to get more suggestions.


Sorry but I really did have to edit this question. -- 'Mash

is, ok. but is not what I ask . and also none of the ones correcting questions are answering so that lets me to believe that is more important to take the time to rewrite someone else thoughts instead of answering what is being ask. That is very in respectful. Anyways thank you for your time.

Kary, the question is a lot cleaner and a lot more clear for people as it is after the edits. We edit each other's questions here, it's just a way users help each other out.

I do smoothies not juices so they get the whole vegetable. My favorite is strawberry with beets, spinach, banana and coconut milk.

3 tricks to getting your little one to eat more vegetables. This has worked with me.

1)Get the kids involved with the cooking. If they help make what they are eating they are more inclined to eat it.

2)Expose them to lots of different types of foods at a young age, but be OK with it if they don't like it. Sometimes kids have stomach issues that we are not aware of, so forcing them to eat specific things does more harm than good. When you find something healthy they like repeat it over and over. They are creatures of habit and like routine, and like what they are familiar with.

3)I also like to dehydrate vegetables, and powder them and sprinkle them on food for added nutrition when they don't get enough vegetables. Even if they don't think they like vegetables getting them used to the flavor of them for their developing taste buds. This will make it easier when they are ready for vegetables.

What do you do with all the good stuff left over? Why not just eat the veggies? Especially to get the young one accustomed to real food instead of sweet food? Critical, but also curious.

Having said that ... kale and currants. I like it because you eat the entire product -- without leftovers. I suppose that makes it a smoothie, not a juice.
