A Simple Way To Sneak Vegetables In Your Children’s Favorite Snacks
As my kids get older, I find myself getting more creative in how to give them their vegetables. Heck, as I get older, I’m looking for ways to trick myself into eating more vegetables. You can forget hiding veggies in my kids’ food when I cook. Trying to make muffins with zucchini on my own and there is always a whole zucchini poking out of the muffin. I had to find a way to get more creative with this vegetable conundrum. Thankfully, a friend told me about called Garden Lites. So, I headed to my local Kroger and decided to scope out these delicious items. When she told me about these, I got excited.
My kids love muffins for breakfast, snack time, anytime! These snacks are even perfect to take when we travel. When I heard there were veggies in these muffins, I was intrigued. Veggies are a part of the muffins and I don’t have to do the hiding myself? Sign me up! I won’t lie, I was nervous about trying them but even more nervous about my kids giving them a whirl. Ya’ll my kids can sniff veggies out from anywhere.
Sharing Garden Lites with my kids
Just like any ordinary day, I decided to allow my kids in on my Garden Lites secret. I didn’t tell them anything about the muffins beforehand. I just brought them out as a snack and let my kids eat them as normal.
They had no clue about a chocolate muffin made of 1/3 of veggies. In fact, they didn’t even know there were veggies in them. Guess what? I’m not going to tell them. The very fact that they ate them without complaining and with no suspicion, I’m not going to ruin that.
If my kids will eat Garden Lites and not think anything about it, then you need to give them a try. Kids need their veggies and at this point, I will do almost anything to get my kids to eat them.
My Thoughts on Garden Lites
I know ya’ll are dying to find out what I think about Garden Lites. Guess what? I’m sold too. The taste is delicious and the texture is great. They are also gluten and dairy free! I’m not naïve to think that I also need my veggies, so guess who is enjoying Garden Lites several times a week? This girl.
