Do you need a way to increase your green veggie intake or help your kids get in some? This is a good way to start if you have picky kids as I do. Parmesan cheese makes this unbelievably good and the kids will enjoy picking them up with their fingers too!
This recipe was inspired by Aggie's Kitchen. When I saw her Baked Zucchini Sticks I was excited. I thought this would be the perfect way to get my kiddies to eat zucchini. I was right, it worked beautifully! They loved them!
Her recipe is slightly adapted by eliminating the bread crumbs, adding some fresh parsley, and reducing one egg for an egg white.
I love that I can eat a half a cup for very few calories and only one point!
