Looking for ways to include more vegetables into your baby’s diet?

Try adding veggies into every meal – they’re versatile and can even be incorporated into breakfast!

Remember, it’s all about consistency. So, the more you include veggies into each of your baby’s meals, the more likely they are to enjoy them – making mealtimes more enjoyable for everyone!

Try out the recipe below for a simple, nutrient rich breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • a splash water or milk
  • handful cooked mushrooms or vegetables (frozen or leftovers are perfect)
  • handful grated cheese (optional)
  • pinch dried mixed herbs (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon canola or olive oil

Method

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  2. Beat water/milk and egg with herbs (if using).
  3. Add egg mixture to hot pan.
  4. Cook the egg mixture until the bottom has set on the pan.
  5. Add the vegetables and sprinkle with cheese (if using).
  6. Finish cooking by placing pan under a hot grill for a few seconds if required to cook the egg all the way through (so there are no clear bits of egg).

To serve the family

Follow the same method but allow per adult:

  • 1–1 ½ eggs

AND for every extra adult:

  • double the amount of water and vegetables

Good for: any mealtime as well as breakfast; the whole family

Note: always cook eggs well
