I am super lucky that JDaniel eats vegetables and I don’t have to sneak them into foods he likes. There are a number of moms I know that have to sneak in veggies through purees of vegetables or baby food.
With Easter right around the corner I thought I would try creating two sneaky recipes using carrots into muffin tin meals that any bunny or child would love.
The first meal contained whole grain rabbit sandwiches with cream cheese mixed with carrot baby food spread on top. JDaniel loved them. He enjoyed licking the cream cheese mixing spoon of much that I placed some into celery bites.
JDaniel is not big on celery. It is too string for his taste. He was willing to eat it with the special cream cheese in it.
The rest of the tin contained foods rabbits would love to nibble. Strawberries, cauliflower, veggies straws and kiwi grass were all place in the tin.
My growing bunny loved all of them.
The second muffin sneaking carrot lunch has carrots hidden in two foods. The macaroni and cheese has carrot baby food mixed into it. The grilled cheese sandwich has shredded carrots hidden inside.
Actually when you bite into this special grilled cheese sandwich you don’t notice the shredded carrots in it. The carrots are mixed with a small amount of mayonnaise and a 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. The shredded cheddar looks just like the shredded carrots.
I served this sandwich to JDanie and his friend Jake and they both loved it.
The meal is rounded out with a small fruit salad.
