Melon, Kiwi and Carrot Popsicle

I hate to admit it but since our little guy turned into a toddler he has started to dislike fruits and vegetables.
He used to love them so much that he even developed carotemia because of the amount of papaya and squash that he ate
-- every single day!
Anyway, he is now making me think that he is starting to like carrots again. I'm happy about that.
While having our snack at playhouse, I noticed that he didn't try to avoid the carrot cubes from the bowl of soup and actually ate and swallowed them. However, cauliflower, sayote, mangoes, etc.. are still in his boycott list.
He used to like all these! He also wouldn't at least consider tasting grapes, strawberries, kiwi and pineapple. 
I should have taken a photo of how grossed out he was of the rambutan Tita Josie offered him at the picnic we had
with his friends at playhouse!
I'm afraid that his veggie and fruit intake isn't quite enough to give him the exact nutrients that his growing body needs.
This popsicle concoction is my devious plan to get the little guy to eat more of his fruits and vegetables.
It has been working out so far.     
To make, first extract the juice of a carrot with a juicer.
Set this asidde. Then, combine melon and kiwi on a blender and puree. Add carrot juice and pour mixture on to a popsicle mold
Freeze overnight.
