This week we were grateful to receive a ton of egg coupons from our National Partner Breakfast Club of Canada! Breakfast Club of Canada have partnered with Egg Farmers of Canada to provide egg coupons to many Kids Eat Smart Clubs in our province. Thanks to Breakfast Club of Canada and Egg Farmers of Canada – We are so appreciative of this gift each year!!
We encourage all of our schools to serve eggs as it is a great source of protein and can be counted as a serving from the Meat and Alternative group from Canada’s Food Guide.
If your school can avail of these egg coupons please contact your Kids Eat Smart Regional Coordinator to ensure you receive some egg coupons this year.
Try this fun recipe we are sure your students will love!
