Put a smile on your little one's face..
A great way to get your children to eat everything you put on the plate is to dress up your food a little and make it FUN. Usually after Baby C gets home from school, she would want a snack. She was delighted when she got home and found this waiting for her :)
All good and nutritious for the kids, plus it will put a big smile on their face. This is a great way to get them to eat their greens as well. And she's already asking, when will mummy make this for her again. :)
So why not try this for your child this weekend, for breakfast, brunch or lunch? Am sure they would love it!
A cute, girly lunch
You will need:
3 slices streaky bacon
1 lettuce leaf, sliced
1/3 tomato, sliced thinly
1/3 Japanese cucumber, sliced thinly
Some salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp olive oil
1. Place each egg in a ramekin or small bowl and carefully slide into a 20cm frying pan, one at a time. Make sure the egg yolks are aligned (to make the "eyes). Cook over very low heat, until egg white has set. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, using the same oil over high heat, fry the bacon until crispy.
3. Arrange the lettuce at bottom, followed by the tomato and cucumber slice on top. Reserve a small slice of tomato, forming a "U" shape for the mouth. Place the egg on the plate and then arrange two slices of bacon on the left and right side of the egg and another piece on the top to form the "hair". Place the reserved tomato slice below the two "eyes" (yolks). Season with some salt and pepper. And there you have it, a simple but delightful girly lunch for your child.
