Anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis knows it's a common even to have Alex in the kitchen with me. I love finding recipes that he can not only enjoy eating, but help me make, creating memories in the kitchen that will last a lifetime. And now, thanks to Eggland's Best that same idea is spreading like wild fire!
Whether eggs are the star of your child's breakfast, or maybe a nutritious after school snack, it is so important to keep kids energized during and after school hours by providing them with foods packed with nutrients, such as vitamins E, D, B-12 and omega-3's By choosing Eggland's Best, you're getting eggs that are fresher, taste better, and contain more vitamins and nutrients.
By using EB eggs in everything from breakfast, to snacks, to sweet treats, it's easy to sneak extra nutrients into your child's diet, keeping them energized, focused and strong.
Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain more than double the omega-3s, which studies have found may boost attention in kids under 12. Plus, with ten times the vitamin E, a key antioxidant for strong immunity, EB eggs can help to ward off those sick days.
The folks at EB know the day doesn’t end after the bell rings, so you’ll be excited to hear their eggs pack four times the vitamin D, helping the body absorb calcium for strong bones on and off the field. They also have only 60 calories while ordinary eggs have 70 and also contain 25% less saturated fat, -helping to keep kids light on their toes.
So let's get those kids into the kitchen to make something yummy they will love to eat, and you can feel good about giving them!
