These little fritters are really yummy and have lots of hidden veggies.  I am always looking for different things to add to my kids’ lunch boxes, and these go down a treat.  They aren’t so keen on the salsa, but the fritters are lovely with it, so it is a snack that pleases the kids plus the adults!
