Easy Peasy Courgette Slice

Many parents know that toddlers are fussy little people and trying to get new food becomes more difficult as their toddlers starts to gain their independence. Although this can be very frustrating, being a fussy eater is a normal phase in their development. Just know that it will get better with time. 

Most toddlers will eat enough to keep them going, even if they are refusing food at times. They know what they like and they need time to learn that unfamiliar foods are safe and enjoyable to eat. A big mistake parents make is believing their child doesn’t like something because she refused it the first time around. The key us to try, try and try again.

Food needs to be fun! There are a variety of ways that they can explore food so that they can become more familiar. Why not try and give a fruit or veggie a new funny name? Or try a hidden veggie recipe or bung everything into a blender for a delicious juice or smoothie! Offering fingers foods to my daughter is the best way to allow her to explore food, even if she does make as mess as she goes. 

We like to buy a new fruit or veggie each week so we can try new recipes or develop fun ways to explore them and this week our veggie choice was courgettes. They have a high water content, significant levels of Vitamin C and potassium and are a good source of soluble fibre. But they were never really a first choice when it comes to veggies, however since introducing courgettes to my daughter they are fast becoming a favourite of ours. So I wanted to share this easy peasy courgette slice. 

For this easy peasy courgette slice you'll need:

2 medium eggs 
64g of self-raising flour, sifted 
150g courgette, grated 
1/2 onion, chopped and diced

40g cheddar cheese 
1-2 tbsp of olive oil
