Sometimes getting kids to eat breakfast can be a struggle. Whether it’s a small child who just isn’t hungry in the morning to a teenager that would rather sleep a little longer in the morning than eat. We have all had our days where getting everyone fed can be a challenge. The bright side is that your child’s school could be serving up a delicious option like the following recipe at their Kids Eat Smart Club!
Incorporating fun bite sized options for kids and an easy grab and go option for the teenagers can be key to getting them to enjoy a healthy start to the day. Try adding this balanced recipe item to your Kids Eat Smart Club menu or at home:
Breakfast Burrito Bites
- 3 TBL chopped bell peppers
- 1 tsp. olive oil, or spray pan with non stick cooking spray
- 3 eggs (whipped slightly in a bowl)
- 1 TBL. water
- 2 (8 inch) Whole wheat tortillas
Cook peppers with oil or cooking spray. Remove peppers from pan. Cook egg/water mixture over hot skillet, without scrambling them. Move egg inward to cook although through, and flip, so you have a large “fried egg”. Cut in half. Place one egg on each tortilla. Add peppers to the center of your tortilla and roll up.
