5 Ingenius ways to add eggs to your babys diet

 An egg is one the best source of protein for your toddler. It contains all the amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) in the right proportions and hence its protein is well absorbed and used by the body. An egg also has vitamins like A, D and minerals like iron, phosphorus, calcium and sulphur.

With all these benefits, you wonder how can you ensure that your child finishes the egg you give her daily! Here’s the way. Following are the five different recipes you can include in your child’s diet.

1. Scrambled- a scrambled egg with mild seasonings is often the simplest way you can feed your child the egg. It can be given in the breakfast or in evening as a snack. You can make the variation with finely chopped veggies like onion, tomato, capsicum or coriander to add to the taste.

2. Omelette- a plain or a vegetable omelette is another option. A variation to the regular omelette could be if you add a layer of ketchup and finely chopped and sautéed veggies like carrot/tomatoes/capsicum and present it like a pizza to your little one.

3. Pancake- egg can be combined with flour, milk and sugar and small round pancakes can be made. These can be given as it is or made a roll with a filling of jam/pureed fruits. Instead of sugar, salt can also be used and given as vegetable roll to your toddler for a complete meal option in lunch/dinner time.

4. Hardboiled- egg can be hardboiled and given as an easy option for breakfast/tiffin. Toddlers like to have finger foods and would enjoy eating it.

5. Egg toast- can be made in different shapes with beaten egg and bread. Try giving star/animal shaped egg toast in the lunchbox along with some ketchup and the lunchbox would never come unfinished.

These are 5 basic recipes. If you have any other tried and tested egg recipe please do share with us in the comments section below.

cut capsicum in round shape may be 4 numbers in a big capsicum... add lil oil to the pan and place capsicum... break and add one egg into the capsicum... sprinkle some salt, pepper and oil( origano and red chilli powder- optional) on the egg ... slowly turn and cook the other side.. if you like half boiled egg don't break the yolk.. it tastes yummy... best for evening snack

hi all.... saw all the comments... good to know about recipe s.. the one which I give my baby n she eats it daily in lunch time is: 1) Egg and cerelac mix: first prepare cerelac as usual we make for our kids. But that cerelac should according to your baby's age and flour whatever he or she likes. secondly, take one egg, beat it well n don't add anything in this, scramble it on pan. Now mix both in mixer grinder and a semi liquid mix is really.. my baby likes it :)
