Mini Veggie Bites-Perfect Toddler Food

This is a great recipe to encourage your child to enjoy eating vegetables. The fritters are easy to hold, and it makes a wonderful meal for a toddler.

Preparation: 5 minutes; Cooking: 10 minutes

-1 carrot
-1 zucchini
-1 small potato
-dash of salt & pepper
-2 tbsp flour
-1 tbsp parmesan cheese
-1 tbsp bread crumbs (optional)
-vegetable for frying

Grate all the vegetables.
Squeeze out the excess moisture from the grated vegetables. The best way to do this is to lay the vegetables on a few sheets of paper towel and then cover the vegetables with more paper towel and press down to soak up the excess liquid.
Somebody was very eager to help momma!
Mix the vegetables in a bowl with the seasoning and flour and form into round fritters using your hands.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the fritters, gently flattening them with a spatula. Saute for about 5 minutes, turning halfway through.
Drain on paper towels. They should be golden and crisp on the outside and fully cooked inside.

This is one of my 16 month old daughter's favorite treats, and she was so excited to be eating the veggie bites for dinner. Can you tell?
