Leftover Risotto Cakes

Posted by felicity Thursday, October 18, 2012

o..your little one sampled the risotto but didn’t polish it off. Don't worry - research shows that a child needs to be exposed to a new food up 16-18 times before they "like" it.  
Don’t throw it in the bin or feel you have to gobble it all up, instead turn the leftovers in to Risotto Cakes for tomorrow!
