Sneaky Veg is a family food blog that's packed full of healthy fruit and vegetable recipes for kids. You'll find vegan, vegetarian and hidden vegetable recipes and meal ideas here with a focus on healthy recipes for kids.
Hi, I’m Mandy Mazliah, a London-based mum to three kids, who are currently 11, 10 and 7. I have a passion for making healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes for kids.
Who I am
I work as a food writer, a vegan chef and a cookery teacher, as well as recipe developer and photographer here at Sneaky Veg and on my seasonal vegan site Cook Veggielicious.
On any given day you might find me cooking 100 plant-based meals in a community kitchen, teaching a group of toddlers how to cook healthy fruit and vegetable-based snacks or using every pot and pan in the house to make new recipes for my websites.
My most important job however is that of mum. And feeding my kids has been much harder than I would ever have expected!
We've had a long journey with picky eating, which started with my eldest's refusal from the age of 18 months to eat all fruit and vegetables. Forced to think creatively, I began to develop healthy recipes, containing fruit and veg, that he would eat.
I started Sneaky Veg back in 2013 as a way to share these recipes with the world.
Over time the blog has evolved into a vegetarian family food blog - with lots of fruit and veg of course - and you'll find recipes here that don't hide the veg at all, rather they celebrate its deliciousness.
I now have over a decade of first hand experience of cooking for children, with children and of making healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes professionally too.
I hope you find something here you love!
A brief note on oven timings. My oven is a fan oven and being a home cook I don't have a professional kitchen with which to test other options in. Each oven works in its own particular way, so just be aware that the times I specify may need to be adjusted for your own oven.
