The mother also noted the snack was just a rare ‘treat’ and ‘not the kind of lunch’ her children ‘would eat daily’. 

Her post was met with positive feedback, with many parents saying they were impressed with her easy to follow recipe, while others said they created a similar version for their children.

‘They look better than the ones you buy from food vans,’ one woman said, and another added: ‘This looks so good. I’m nine months pregnant just got an instant craving.’

One woman said: ‘Lunches at my house are much worse than this homemade treat,’ while another mother added: ‘Yum this is such a great idea my kids would love it.’

Another parent asked: ‘Omg my kids love this… I have made them before but not with Polenta. Why the Polenta?’ to which the mother responded: ‘It’s more like a traditional corn dog and polenta is corn meal.’
