Orange Kumara, Carrot & Cream Cheese Fritters
Try a different take on the traditional serving of meat and three veg by whipping up these tasty fritters as your vegetable side instead. Even the most vege-phobic kids will love these crispy, golden pieces of goodness – and the addition of crumbled Meadow Fresh Cream Cheese to the mix provides both a hit of creamy flavour and a little extra nutrition, too. These would make a fantastic after school snack and any leftovers would be a healthy addition to a lunchbox – that’s if they last that long.
