If I could add Erica, my 11 year old, as a blog author- I would. Her problem is, she rather play with friends. (ha ha). But, many of the ideas for this site have actually been her ideas. Including the one for today!
It should be the goal of every parent to get to a place where your kids are making their own food, right? You don’t want your kids to be eating ramen and vending machine food as soon as they get to college. It is possible to have them start young! So, Erica decided, an easier way to make an egg is to use our waffle iron. The benefit here is no flipping, no getting burned on the edge of a skillet that’s too deep, and no worries that your egg won’t get cooked all the way through! And you know what, it worked beautifully!
Step 1: She first sprayed a hot waffle iron with cooking spray.
Step 2: She cracked an egg into one corner of the iron. Then, using a fork, she broke the yolk, and made sure the egg ran into the corners of the waffle section. Then close the waffle iron to cook both sides!
Step 3: Once it’s done, she removed it with a fork!
So, because of Erica, I’m adding a new category, “Kids in the Kitchen“, to identify meals your kids can make themselves!
Don’t forget, eggs are great to include in your kids diet! Eggs:
- Contain all 9 essential amino acids
- Are good for your eyes (helps prevent Macular Degeneration)
- Regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
- May help prevent strokes
- Contain Naturally occurring Vitamin D
- Promotes healthy hair and nails.
