Corn is a fantastic vegetable, rich in colour and nutrients, a wonderful food and usually very popular with picky eaters. Sweetcorn Fritters with Mango Salsa is a yummy, healthy and fun finger food recipe that your kids will love to find in their school lunch.

As a vegetable, sweetcorn is one of your five-a-day, and it has plenty of nutritional value. Picky eaters usually love sweetcorn as it tastes sweet, and while you might think that means it’s full of sugar, an ear of corn actually has about the same number of calories as an apple and less than a quarter the sugar. Another reason why this makes a super school lunch.

Okay, next you just cook them until golden brown on each side. 🙂

Now I know you’re thinking, that mango salsa is going to be a pain… But it’s not! It’s as simple as dicing up a mango, a little sweet onion (just 1/4 of an onion), and coriander. Then squeeze a lime over it and stir!
