I usually make fritters when I need to clear my fridge of leftover vegetables from the week. Any leftover vegetables go wonderfully in a fritter using simple ingredients like eggs, flour, and cheese to bind.

This recipe is also rich in protein and fiber both essential for growing children. Zucchini fritters are a great way to hide vegetables from picky eaters who love this as a meal with a little great yogurt or ketchup as a dip.


This zucchini fritters recipe is great as a quick baby-led weaning lunch option or dinner.

It can also be plated as a side along with chopped fruit or as a snack for toddlers who are ever hungry as it is quite a filling meal.
