Eggs are a great source of protein along with many other nutrients. We always encourage our KES Breakfast Clubs to serve a protein source with breakfast but sometimes it can be challenging. Eggs are a great protein to include with breakfast if facilities allow and allergies are not an issue. Many KES Clubs do have the ability to use eggs. Try this easy recipe at your KES Club this week:
