    I agree, for very young children, and the link does stipulate that in early years it's best to avoid altogether. However even the senior section of our school (years 9-12) has a blanket ban on nuts and eggs.

    ETA I don't want to derail, will leave it at that

    I am thinking of baking my muffins with hidden veg in them and homemade chicken strips and meatballs for his lunch. Looking for easy recipes.

    You mums are amazing. I have lots to learn.
    I have been known to grate zucchini into chocolate muffins. Ditto banana bread and savoury

    Would he eat veg loaf? I have a good vegetarian loaf recipe I can dig out? It is great in a packed lunch, my two both eat it.

    The cookbook 'deceptively Delicious' by Jessica Seinfeld is excellent for adding hidden vegies in yummy food. I use it heaps for my lunchbox 'treats'

    I have that book. It gives you some really great ideas. Even though my dd's love their vegetables. chocolate cake with spinach is yum.

    I haven't heard of that one I must have a look at it. My 'go to' book for ideas is the veggie smugglers books. Some of the recipes are so simple the way extra veg is added in I think why didn't I think of that??
    Its mainly for meals but has sections for snacks and lunch boxes too. My fave is the freezable meals section She is on Facebook too and is full of good ideas on how to add extra veg for fussy kiddies.
