Let them eat cup cakes...Put the carrot's on Top..;)
When it comes to getting your toddler to eat healthy food yet something that looks more like what all other children buy from the supermarket & eat...well "healthy carrot muffins", there couldn't be a better answer at least for the moment when i don't have too much time to cook , for kids who are naughtier & families who are naughtier.... what could be a better idea than this...??
The most important part was that each yummy cupcake contains about 1/2 a serving of veggies,without the frosting, plus healthy enough for your child to have them every day.
It took off really cool & everybody ate the cupcakes as if they had never tasted something like this actually they had never tasted something like this...!!
As the carrot cup cakes baked in my oven the sweet aroma of carrots filled the house, the great thing was that it took only about 20-25 mins to get them all done...hmmmm...smells heavenly...!!
well try it, I'm sure you will have the same opinion on this...!!
