I've been trying to get some vegetables into my kids lunchboxes with some sneaky recipes. I've tried these:

Carrot Cake Breakfast Biscuits

Any other ideas that work well?

Zuchinni Loaf is a good one... I can hunt out the recipe if you're keen.
Also, what about pizza with tomato paste base, and grated zuchinni, or other veges, topped with cheese.

Great suggestions! Thanks. Another one I'm going to try are these Carrot Oatmeal Biscuits. Worth a try with carrot and oatmeal in. Looks yummy anyway.

With my son, as long as it has spinach, he's all good. Otherwise, I have to be sneaky, like grating carrots and mixing it with beef mince for meatballs and/or hamburgers.

We have a 'Wednesday Wrap' day, they kids love a tortilla with grated carrot, grated cheese and finely chopped tomato in their wrap. I usually smear some cream cheese or relish in there and ham if we have it. They love veges, but I know they love unwrapping their 'rolls'. I use the HB tortillas, cheapest you can get. One rolled up and cut into 2. Depends on how much they eat, 2 tortillas are good as well.

Or you could make some vege dips with sour cream and put a little pottle of dip in their lunch box and come carrot/celery sticks for them to nibble on. My kids love carrot sticks IF there is a dip or some mayo. You could also use vege dips to spread on the bread with ham sandwiches etc.

when I make muffins I always put fruit or veg in them.
veg sticks with cream cheese or hummus to dip them in
put it on a skewer with a marshmellow and they think it's a treat
mix it in their yoghurt
pies or quiches full of veg
home made pizzas loaded with veg, they think that's a treat too
set it in jelly
precut the fruit and put it in a snaplock or small container and they're more likely to eat it, you might need some lemon juice to make sure it doesn't go brown.
they'll eat leftover almost anything if it's in a pita bread
