Veggies can be tasty in any meal, and if your kids are a little sceptical then you need to whip up my Courgette Chocolate Slice with Sweet Potato Frosting! While there’s no problem sneaking some extra veggies into meals here and there to boost their intake, it’s important to show your kids just how tasty and nutritious veggies are in all meals – desserts included! In fact, both courgette and sweet potato work to stabilize blood sugar levels so they’re the perfect addition to sweet treats.
