A great collection of some of the best hidden veggie recipes out there covering both sweet and savoury snacks. Perfect for picky eaters.
Some kids love vegetables - others need a bit of help to get their five a day. Seeing as government recommendations say that we should actually be eating something closer to ten portions of fruit and vegetables a day, it's likely that many of us would benefit from adding a few portions of hidden vegetables to our snacks.
As the mother of a child who doesn't willingly eat any fruit or vegetables I'm more than comfortable with sneaking a vegetables into sauces, cakes, pancakes, muffins and anything else I can think of. Even if you don't need to hide the veggies it's always good to add extra flavour and nutrition to snacks.
