Potato & Carrot Waffles

Potato & Carrot Waffles

One of my top tips on getting a fussy or picky eater to try new foods is to give them something they are familiar with. Most children love pancakes or waffles so why not add in some nutritious vegetables!

You can find a whole section on homemade pancake and waffle recipes inside the Lunchbox Made Easy book if you're looking for some inspiration!

Makes: 6 Waffles


2 carrots, grated
1 large sweet potato, grated
125g Cheddar cheese, grated
