Crazy Easy Corn Fritter Recipe
As parents we are always trying to find ways to get our little ones to eat more veggies aren't we?! It can feel like a constant battle.
There is lots of ways (which I step parents through in my Nourishing Children-Coaching Package) that we can effectively support our kids in trying and learning to like a wider variety of nutritious foods...including veggies. One strategy is to continue serving them up and exposing kids to a good variety of foods. This includes serving up veggies in different and interesting (and delicious) ways! A pile of steamed vegetables on the side of the plate every, single, night wouldn't be appealing to kids who are still learning to appreciate and like foods, so you can understand why you would likely lose the battle of getting kids to eat them each night. A secret weapon you can use to win the battle (maybe not every time...but more often) is to have some simple, nutritious and delicious arsenal up your sleeve in the form of new vegetable recipes!
These Corn Fritters are super simple and nutritious recipe you can easily whip-up for your kids and keep in your arsenal to help win the vegetable battles.
They’re quick, easy and very versatile!
🥦 I often add in some grated broccoli, thinly sliced spring onion or green peas too! But, if your little one is a bit fussy, you can keep them quite plain (without green bits) at first, then when they’ve accepted and like the fritters (which may take a few exposures) you can add the new ingredient. It is always important to still expose your kids to some green veggies each day, so if they're not in the fritters, add them on the side....but then add into the fritters down the track. to mix things up.
You could also use wholemeal flour in these if you wish or rice or any gluten-free alternative you wish! (I havn't experimented with every flour, so jiggle the amount around to find the best consistency).
We love these as part of our dinner or lunch or even on their own as a snack!! And they’ve even been a hit in the kids’ lunchboxes (cold) too! I know families who like sour cream then smoked salmon on top!
Some parents I've worked with have cooked them as a huge fritter and cut it up in slices like a pizza, some have done super small bite sized blobs...so go crazy with your creativity to keep it interesting for kids!
Give them a go, get your kids helping and let me know if they approve!
