I really try my best to get the boys to eat veggies on their own; unhidden or masked in cheese! However, the root veggies prove a little more challenging for them to eat without prompting. However, I stumbled on these fritters and they were all kinds of tasty and the boys didn’t even notice the carrots or zucchini. Score one for mom!
