I am always trying to find a new way to serve veggies that my 4 year old will enjoy.  Usually if there is anything green on her plate the first response is “yuck!!”  The other day I was looking at Toddler Tastes blogspot and came across her veggie nuggets recipe.  I tweeked it a bit to make it thermomix friendly, and am happy to say that my veggie nuggets were enjoyed by the whole family!  Hope you give them a try too.
