These new products allow parents to leverage their child’s adoration of Nickelodeon characters while reinforcing healthier eating habits.  These fun muffins come in a pack of six and are 1oz each.

Your child will be so thrilled to share their snack time with Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael.

The Garden Lites Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Power Muffins are a delicious twist on your standard chocolate chip muffin with just a hint of caramel, and they are made with fresh zucchini and spinach! You’ll find Garden Lites Muffins in the freezer section of your favorite grocer. They thaw quickly, in under two hours at room temperature, for easy enjoyment on-the-go or in a lunchbox; or defrost them in the microwave for 20 seconds per muffin and you’ll have a warm healthy treat for your little one on these cold wintry days. They will be full with “Turtle Power” in no time!

My Thoughts

Getting kids to eat vegetables is always a struggle. I thought it would get easier as they got older, but my fourteen-year-old is just as stubborn as the three-year-old when it comes to getting her to eat anything green or healthy.  The Garden Lites Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Power Muffins and Garden Lites SpongeBob SquarePants Chocolate Krabby Square Muffins  are the perfect way to sneak some wholesome vegetables into their meal without them knowing because these yummy muffins taste so good they'll  never know they're also good for them.

We received a few packages of muffins and they were a bigger hit than I could've possibly imagined. Each muffin comes in tasty flavors, but in addition to the fruits and chocolate, there also contain a serving of vegetables, not to mention a healthy helping of fiber. They're even gluten free!  The pictures of Sponge Bob and turtles were all the encouragement my kids needed to give them a try.

My kids absolutely loved the muffins. They are packed with flavor and you'd never know the veggies were there.  I also love the convenience of the Veggie Muffins. You can let them sit out to thaw for a on-the-go snack or toss one in the microwave for 35 seconds and they're ready to go. They make giving kids a healthy breakfast fast and easy.
