Making fried eggs for breakfast is a very healthy meal option for kids. When you think of high quality protein, count eggs in because it supplies the body with essential amino acids. These are the protein building blocks that helps us to function well and the human body cannot produce it on its own. Eggs are also rich in many vitamins and minerals that support healthy bones and teeth, as well as very important for our eyes, brain and thyroid function. See all the nutritional value of eggs here.
The fried eggs we make for breakfast is normally filled with tomatoes and onions for flavour and nutrition, which generally puts off the picky eater. So i decided to add flavour to my fried eggs this time with herbs and spice. They are natural seasonings and give flavour to baby and kids food. Some natural herbs and spices that you can use are thyme, nutmeg, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric or curry, as well as scent or basil leaves (nchuanwu/efirin).
You can use any one or a combination of spices to make delicious breakfast fried eggs for your kids. The kids can also get more nutrition with the sides served with it. Serve with bread as a sandwich or roll up or with fried plantain, yam or potatoes and baked beans (a fibre rich protein).
