Bella’s Fruit and Veggie Cake

My two eldest boys are picky eaters, one more so than the other. They don’t eat many vegetables (if any!) and not much fruit.

I have had to start being sneaky, trying to find ways to hide fruit and veggies. This recipe has proven very popular in my household. It is great as snacks, or for lunch boxes.
