Nigerian yam is a good source of carbohydrate and fibre for growing children. Adding it to omelette with some other nutritious ingredients makes it a very filling finger food for toddlers.
Yam Omelette is quite simple to make and it can either be given as a finger food to your toddler, packed in their lunchbox or it can also be as a side to meals like jollof rice for bigger kids.

- 1-2 eggs
- Handful of peas
- 1 tsp chopped onions
- 1 tsp ground crayfish
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
(You can add other pre cooked vegetables, grated cheese, deboned mashed fish etc)
