Eggs once a week are awesome
Firstly, eggs are so easy to add to a school lunch box. Boil an egg between 8 and 10 minutes for it to be hard boiled. You can boil them the night before too. I try and give my girls an egg a week at a minimum. They’re simple and can easily be the hero of the school lunch box.
The benefits of eggs
Eggs are incredibly nutritious, they contain the following Vitamins: A, B5, B12 & B2, D, E & K, also Folate, Phosphorus & Selenium, Calcium and Zink. How awesome! Eggs are great for the growing eyes of children.
Source of Protein
Eggs are a great source of protein, for vegetarian lifestyles, eggs are a great source of protein and it’s recommended that eggs are eaten 2 to 3 times a week. Children need the protein for muscle recovery and growth.
I find it easy to hard boil eggs and pop them into the lunch box without the shell. There are many other ways to have eggs in a lunch box. Scrambled eggs in a wrap or sandwich, eggs in a stir fry or even eggs in a quiche. Share with us your ideas….
