Veggie Power Fritters: Sweetcorn and Spinach Delight for Baby-Led Weaning

These nutritious sweetcorn and spinach fritters offer a burst of vitamin C from the vegetables, coupled with protein from the egg. Ideal for baby-led weaning, they're perfect finger foods for introducing wholesome flavours.

Target Age: Toddlers, 1 - 3 years old

Prep: 10 mins  

Cook: 6 mins 

Level: Easy 

Makes14 bites or 3 toddler portions



1 x sweetcorn can

1 garlic clove, minced/chopped 

1 spring onion, chopped

spinach leaves

50g plain flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 egg

50ml any milk of your choice

1 tsp rapeseed oil, for frying


Here's a simple guide for making tasty fritters for your little one:

Step 1: Blend and Prep

- In a food processor, blend all ingredients except the oil until they're slightly chunky but not completely smooth.

Step 2: Cooking Up Fritters

- Heat a bit of oil in a frying pan over medium heat until it's hot.

- Spoon the mixture into the pan, leaving some space between each fritter.

- Fry for under 1 minute on each side until they're lightly golden. Press down gently with a spatula while flipping to ensure they cook evenly.

- Cook in batches, then transfer the cooked fritters to a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak up excess oil. Serve them warm.

Step 3: Freezing and Reheating

- If you have extra fritters, freeze them for later. Lay them out on a baking sheet to freeze individually, then pop them into a freezer bag once frozen.

- To reheat frozen fritters, preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan, Gas Mark 4) and bake for about 10 minutes until they're piping hot.

- Let the reheated fritters cool to lukewarm before serving. Enjoy!
