Zucchini Pizza Bites

Zucchini Pizza Bites

 

I love sneaking vegetables in to meals whenever I can. These Zucchini Pizza Bites are perfect for the little ones! There are a couple vegetables that my kids will eat without any kind of tricks or begging but beyond that they will turn their nose up at some veggies. That requires me getting creative, and while I am not above sneaking vegetables into my recipes I also want them to learn to like them on purpose.


I have learned as a mom that sometimes it is often simply a matter of how you present food to kids that makes them gobble it up or turn away. What is one thing that kids love without question? Most of them will eat pizza any and every day of the week so I thought if I made them up into a cute little pizza it would go over better. To be honest at first my son (yup the picky eater) did not want to even try these, after I convinced him to take one bite he was hooked and ate 6 for his lunch!
