Re: Refusing Vegetables
My son never, to my knowledge, ate any vegetable of any kind until he was over two years old. In fact, he didn't really even eat solids until he was about two. He is still a light eater and a heavy nurser, but he also now eats vegetables. It wasn't because of anything I did, so far as I can tell. I just kept offering, in a lot of different forms, without expectation that he would eat them, and eventually, he did. One thing that may have helped is V8 juice. That was the first vegetable matter that he consumed, and he still loves it. It is available organic now, fyi, and there are also lots of different brands available. (It's also pretty easy to make veggie juice at home.)
I would just suggest that you continue to offer veggies in various forms, eat lots of them yourself, experiment with textures (some kids won't eat them soft, but can't eat them lightly cooked or raw until they have enough teeth -- that seemed also to be at play with my son) and try not to worry too much about it. Vegetables alone will not make or break a nursing toddlers health...
