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”
This seriously is the best mash I’ve ever made. If you are a lover of cauliflower or even if you are not this mash is so darn delicious. Silky smooth and creamy you wouldn’t even know it consists mainly of cauliflower.

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.

Summer holidays have come to an end, for myself it’s a little bitter sweet. Whilst I am over the sibling fighting and constant complaints of boredom I actually really enjoyed having my kids home these holidays. We have spent a lot of quality time together over the past two months swimming, fishing, boating, days at the beach, theme parks, bike rides, movie dates, picnics in the park we really have done it all.

Everyone loves a fudgy brownie the indulgent treat that most people feel incredibly guilty with each mouthful. But what if I told you, you can make them better for you?
Did you know that the average Australian consumes 3 times the amount of added sugar daily?
That is a huge increase over the years, while our recommended daily intake is only 6 teaspoons of sugar per day for women and 9 teaspoons for men an average Australian is consuming up around 17 teaspoons that’s around 70g of sugar a day! It’s as little as having a glass of store-bought orange juice and pre packaged cereal for breakfast with store-bought muesli bar or muffin for morning tea. They all contain added sugar which is hidden and without even knowing it you are already over your daily intake and you havent even had lunch yet.
