Nutrition: Per toddler portion


  • 1 x small can no-salt sweetcorn, drained
  • small handful baby spinach leaf
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 50g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 50ml milk
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil, for frying


  • STEP 1

    Pulse all the ingredients except the oil in a food processor until fairly but not completely smooth.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a little oil in a frying pan until hot and dollop four spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan leaving space around them. Fry for just under 1 min on each side until lightly golden. When you flip the fritter, flatten with a spatula to ensure even cooking the whole way through. Cook in three batches, placing the cooked fritters on a plate covered with kitchen roll. Serve warm.

  • STEP 3

    You can freeze any fritters you don’t need. Lay them on a baking sheet, then once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag. Reheat the frozen fritters in the oven (180C/160fan/gas 4) for around 10 mins until piping hot. Allow to cool to lukewarm before serving.
