Hide Those Veggies!

Author: Chantice Butterfield 

If you offer a child a muffin or a plate of spinach, which one do you think they are most likely going to grab for? We know the answer to that one! 

While it’s so important for us to ensure they receive all the nutrients they need, as parents we are fully aware that at some stage of their development, our children will fight us at every turn—veggies are a no no in their eyes! 

So what’s a parent to do? Hide them!  

Here’s a super healthy snack for children of all ages; spinach muffins packed with fruit. Their rich green colour will pique your child’s curiosity and the flavour will have them begging you to make more.  

These muffins are super easy to make! Literally just throw everything into a blender until smooth pour into a muffin tin and bake!  

If you make too many, they are fine for freezing. Just pop in the microwave for a few seconds and enjoy! BPM
