Good Food for Little People – Veggie Fritters

Getting children – big and small – to eat more vegetables is a never-ending challenge for parents. And like many parents, I spent a lot to time and effort trying to encourage my sons to eat vegetables by serving them in creative ways and as a result, they grew up to love most greens and salads.

Fritters are a great way to get kids to eat vegetables. They are an easy and healthy option to make for kids of all ages. Fritters are a great addition to a child’s lunchbox or as an after school snack. Served with a spicy dipping sauce or garlic aioli, they make a delicious starter with drinks for an adult gathering or dinner party.IMG_3198I often make these CAULIFLOWER, CORN & CHEESE FRITTERS for my 2 year old grandson Pedro and he loves them. The best thing about fritters is that little hands like Pedro’s can easily hold them, which is great because Pedro insists on feeding himself, so making food that he can hold, means more goes into his mouth and less ends up the floor.

Why not give these fritters a go yourself and if you do, I’d love to know what you think.

How about trying the FISH FRITTERS or ZUCCHINI, CARROT & MUSHROOM FRITTERS.

Tip: Make a batch of fritters and once cooled, freeze them in small amounts for a quick snack.
