Today I’m sharing a quick tip with you on how I make a healthy breakfast for my toddler. I love making scrambled egg with spinach for baby!
My toddler is a very picky eater, so most of the time the food I try to have him eat ends up tossed to the floor, for the dogs to enjoy. I do want my little guy to eat some veggies, so I’ve tried mixing them in his food that I know he will eat. If you’re interested in egg recipes for picky toddlers, this is a great one!
Baby H loves scrambled eggs, so I wanted to mix in some veggies while cooking them. I first tried cutting up spinach into tiny pieces and cooking it in, but my smarty pants just picked it out.
So, blender to the rescue. I’ve started blending a bunch of spinach and/or kale together, and one blender-full makes several batches that I store in baby food jars. Then, I stir in one baby food jar when making some scrambled eggs and freeze the rest for later.
I start cooking the eggs and then dump in the blended spinach to cook into the eggs.
See? The eggs are a bit green (Green Eggs and Ham anyone?) and are yummy and healthy. Hey, sometimes you just gotta hide the veggies in plain sight.
Also, egg and spinach baby-led weaning recipes are a great plan!
I like to cook up a big batch Sunday night so it will last most of the week. You gotta simplify things and cook in bulk when you’re a working mom.
