Incorporating Veggies: Healthy Eating for Kids

Back in August, I joined Facebook group for making our kids lunches the healthy way.

Then Irma came and we all decided to eat Hurricane food (read: unhealthy) so we’re starting to get back into our routine now.

It’s not the first time I’ve tried to get my kids to eat veggies (and I’m sure it won’t be the last).

I had never made a zucchini bread, but any way I can sneak veggies into my kids (and hubby’s) meals, I’m in!

HOLY MOLY! This bread is delicious. My kids don’t even notice the zucchini and eat it up for breakfast or we even eat it as dessert! It is SO GOOD.
