Sending Evan’s lunch every day has been pretty easy so far. He fights against any variance from his standbys of ham sandwich or humus & pita chips. I’m okay with that, though, since both fit into the school lunch policy. We round out his lunch with fruits and veggies and the occasional treat. I wanted to keep it on the straight and narrow until I could suss out Evan’s teacher a bit better. Thankfully, we’ve been smiled upon by the Nice Teacher gods so no worries there.
Today I had a bit of extra time and a bit of extra zucchini. What is a girl to do? Make muffins, of course! These are pretty healthy but the addition of chocolate chips means that kids will think they are a big treat. We won’t break the news to them that they have veggies in them, right?

Note….somehow I managed to forget to add the egg. They were awesome anyway though I think the egg would add some structural stability so I will add it next time.
What is your favorite muffin to send with your kids?
