The incredible Greek Yogurt and butter makes them super soft, and moist. They are loaded with zucchinis and don't even taste like it; a good way to begin pushing thinking, memory and focus food, like vegetables, into kids’ diet. Especially the picky ones. My kids love them very much. Who wouldn't love one a serving of this sweetness?
