Well, I've been baking muffins for a long time for me, and my kids, of course! They like banana/nut muffins (sometimes w/chocolate chips), something called "morning glory" muffins, pumpkin/apple,etc. There are a million muffin recipes to choose from, and they make a healthier snack than the processed foods. Happy baking! Also, Jerry Seinfeld's wife has a cookbook out where you sneak vegetables into baked goods. Haven't tried any of those recipes myself.

My little girl is just under 4, so she doesn't go to school yet, and she is currently living 1600 miles away, but I am actually gonna overnight her a care package soon with some healthy foods. (I am a little concerned about how her dad feeds her and hope to introduce healthy options to them) In the package I want to put some roasted chickpeas, dried fruit, pumpernickel, some healthy(ier) cookies, and I don't know what else yet. I have never tried to make pumpernickel, and it is my next baking project, so I decided to shared it with my daughter, but I don't know how that with work via mail, even overnighted...
One of my New Year's resolutions is to rely less on prepackaged stuff and do more home baking, especially for the kids. Things like breads, muffins, etc. and then do some substituting of ingredients to make them healthier. Do you put homebaked goods in your kids' lunchboxes ? What do you make and do your kids like the healthier versions, if you've tried making them ?
