Every mum wants to ensure that their little one is getting their five a day, so snacks like these Vegetable Egg Muffins are great for sneaking a portion in. Kids adore muffins, so the familiar form will mean they will be excited to try. These are perfect for popping into the lunch box and giving some added nutritious value during school hours. Muffins are a great method of introducing fruit and vegetables to your little one, and I always try to add these healthy foods to my muffin recipes.
