Need some new ways to get your kids to eat veggies? Read below for some Easter veggies and bento box ideas!
I couldn’t believe it when I first “taste-tested” them myself! The chocolate muffin is a household favorite! Zucchini is the main ingredient, but the flavor is so delicious. I don’t think my kids believe me when I tell them that they’re getting a good serving of vegetables with their chocolate muffin.
Easter is another big holiday around here so it was fun to put together this themed bento box. Even though it looks pretty fancy, it’s pretty easy for me to get a good, Pinterest-worthy kids’ meal together using our go-to bento box and small food cutters! I try to add in different fruits and sides and of course, our Garden Lites muffins, to mix up the food choices for the boys.
For this meal, I made a bunny-shaped jelly sandwich using a cheese slice for the bunny face. For their sides, I used blackberries and cherry tomatoes since they’re “egg shaped,” and cut out our Garden Lites muffins to look like Easter eggs, too!
I added a dollop of guacamole with carrots dipped into them and shaped the strawberries and grape slices to look like carrots, too. Needless to say, this bento box was a major hit with both of the boys (and their dad, too)!
We buy our Garden Lites muffins at our local Kroger. You can find them in the freezer section of the Natural Choices aisle!
Garden Lites Muffins are an easy way for me to make sure that the kids are getting their vegetables along with the rest of their meal. And it’s a nice little snack for the parents too! Be sure to get Garden Lites Muffins in the freezer section of your nearest Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant, Shop-Rite, HEB, Kroger or Costco.
