Have you ever made savory muffins? They are a fun and delicious way to get veggies into your day! Broccoli can be a little tricky for small hands to chop, so have your child help break apart the florets then practice sawing back and forth to trim the broccoli “leaves” off the “tree.” Chop the broccoli alongside your little chef and if he or she gets tired of cutting, your child can always help transfer the chopped broccoli to a measuring cup. Kids will also love to help by cracking the eggs, measuring the ingredients, and mixing everything all together. Enjoy!
