This collection of veggie smuggling dinner ideas will be a game change on your dinner table!
Some days the battle to add the obvious veggies onto a platter or plate is just too much, especially at the end of a looooong day 😉 Admittedly my kids are pretty good eaters overall, but all three have gone through phases of simply refusing to eat any type of vegetable (and we are still in that phase with one!), even those that used to love.
These recipes all include vegetables which are hidden to some degree and you can also serve many of them alongside other foods that your family will enjoy. Also, (and perhaps most importantly, these recipes are all family friendly – and many freezer friendly too!
