My pumpkin cream cheese muffins, for example, seem like sweet cupcakes. But they're loaded with fiber-rich bran and vitamin-rich pumpkin.
And my guacamole recipe is rich with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Don't dismiss deviled eggs, either. Eggs are a good source of protein, B vitamins, choline (which supports brain health) and lutein (great for eye health). And when you buy omega-3-enriched eggs, you get a boost for your heart as well. But the best part about these snacks is that they're so packed with nutrients, they'll keep the kids going straight through dinner.
