We are in a bit of a rut with eating for my 19m old. He mainly likes to snack on (and for lunch) have things like : oat cakes with nut butter, pitta bread, fruit, breadsticks...

I'm looking for some savoury ideas so I can encourage more vegetables - what are your favourites please?

I make mini egg muffins with either mushroom and cheese, peas, broccoli or carrots in and keep them in the fridge for snacks they love them!

Babybel or small chunk of other cheese
Raw celery with cream cheese or peanut butter in the groove
Raw or lightly steamed carrot sticks
Frozen peas (still frozen, in a little dish)
Cut-up cherry tomatoes

My 16 month old loves these avocado muffins

I find hummus and breadsticks or veggies good or a quesadilla with cheese/onion/tomato is handy for little prep.

I literally just lightly grease a cup cake / muffin tin and pre heat the oven to 190 (fan)
I beat probably 5/6 eggs with a splash of milk in a bowl or jug.
Place veg in each tin hole then cover in the egg mix and add a little grated cheese on the top and bake for about 18 minutes.

I either leave them to cool and serve right away or keep them in the fridge and reheat them the next day.

I found a proper recipe here from bbc good food but haven't tried it!!

These are great thank you!

Lots to try!

He doesn't like the texture of houmous / soft cheese - he is deeply suspicious when I offer it!
