These kid approved, baked zucchini tater tots have a hidden ingredient. But I promise your little ones will never notice! Not only did I add some zucchini for additional vitamins and nutrients, but these tater tots are baked, making them a perfectly healthy choice.
Have you heard of baby led weaning (BLW)? Essentially, it is the practice of skipping purees and spoon feeding. Instead, going straight to finger foods and table foods when baby is 6 months old. Well, after having the pleasure of an enormously picky toddler, my husband and I chose a different route for our second born. So you will notice I’ve been making quite a few recipes lately for little hands.
I’m very big on homemade is best!
…in case you haven’t noticed yet. So this morning I thought to myself that I would make my 10 month old something fun. Well hello tater tots! Kids love dipping, and this is good practice for his fine motor skills all at the same time. In the interest of healthy food, I wanted to add a more nutritional component to this recipe. So I open my fridge to see zucchini and viola! Baked zucchini tater tots.
After forming each tater tot, I brush them with a little olive oil before baking so they get nice and crispy on the outside!
Then, serve with your favourite dipping sauce, (I like Cayenne Spicy Dip). Or keep it simple and stick with good ol’ ketchup.
