Zucchini slice is such a classic recipe! It’s an easy (and tasty) way to get more veggies into the kid’s diet, and is great in their lunchboxes, or an easy packed work lunch when combined with a small salad on the side. This is also perfect for picnics and BBQs, bring-a-plate events, or cut into small squares to use on a grazing platter. 

For an equally delicious version, swap some of the grated zucchini for grated carrot, or add a handful of corn kernels.
