Gluten Free Lunchbox Friendly Rich in Protein

If you don’t generally cook Turkey, these are well worth a try as the mild flavour tends to be well tolerated. These veggie packed meatballs make a great finger food for babies from 8 months and protein-rich lunchbox addition for preschoolers and beyond. Batch cook and freeze them for a midweek dinner in minutes – just serve with quinoa or rice and veg.

2 garlic cloves
1 egg
1 small carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
