Hard Boiled Egg Boats
This yummy, little, high protein snack caused my little house guests to stand over me, waiting to eat them. These kids (my niece and nephew that are visiting for a few days) apparently love both hard boiled eggs, and cheese!
I've been a big fan of kids eating eggs for a long time. Eggs are an inexpensive source of protein that also contains:
- Choline: Vital for brain development
- Lutein: Which protects eyes
- Vitamin B12, which is important for energy
- Naturally occurring Vitamin D- important for regulating calcium levels and enhancing absorption of calcium.
Keeping those little hands off this snack before I got a picture of them was almost impossible! But as soon as we were done, they dived in and got a great source of nutrients for their snack! (This could also be a quick breakfast too!)
