This would have to be one of my all time favourite kids recipes that I make almost every week. Originally a zucchini slice recipe that my mother passed on to me when I had children, now I have shared this with so many of my friends and now you all.

My kids just love having them as individual size muffins. It’s easy for them to eat and makes for a perfect lunchbox size snack. Another way of hiding those pesky veggies in a way they will love with sweet corn, ham, eggs and cheese. They don’t last too long in my house so making a double batch is necessary for me if you want them to longer. Freezer friendly, wrap them in cling wrap and pack them frozen by lunch time they will be thawed just in time to eat. Continue reading “Zucchini & Corn Lunchbox Muffins”

Hidden Veggie Meatloaf with Tomato Glaze

Family dinner with young kids can be tricky as much as you’d love them to eat every vegetable you eat sometimes it just seems impossible and not to mention stressful. I get it my kids have their moments too let me assure you.

Visually vegetables are an instant turn off for most kids, seeing the amount they have to eat each night already gets them in a bother. Sometimes we have to get creative and hide them in food they do like. Let’s be real as much as those cute food pictures that look like a butterflies or funny faces made out of veggies or cookie cutout salads look visually stimulating but who really has time to do that every night? Hiding them or mixing them in other foods just seems to be a much less time consuming and gimmicky way of getting their daily serve of veggies.
