Zucchini and Chocolate Chip Muffins | The healthy lunchbox snack
Parenting is all about balance, right?
And the same goes for lunchbox snacks. You want all the nutrients, but sometimes you’ve got to tweak the way you deliver them so your tiny humans don’t catch onto the goodness hidden inside.
These Zucchini and Choc Chip Muffins have been our saviour at WMBT HQ. We love making big batches before the school term kicks off so we can freeze these healthy treats as no-fuss nutrient boosters.
Our little ones have been asking for more ever since we made our first batch, totally oblivious to the green goodness within.
They’re quick and easy to make, which means you can easily fit in a speedy baking session between various weekend activities without too much disruption to your day.
Now for the lunchbox part:
Arguably the cutest and most convenient way to pack these snacks for outings is one of our popular Snackies. They’re incredibly sturdy, put a smile on your little one’s face and should be a staple in every modern family’s staples collection.
What makes them so versatile?
Pop them in your dishwasher, freezer, microwave or oven, and these silicone snack boxes will keep up with your demands. #madetolast
