Eggs can be a great source of protein for growing kiddos! Eggs can also be tons of fun to cook and bake with.
Get young children involved in the kitchen with simple tasks like cracking eggs, beating yolks and whites with a fork, or peeling hard-boiled eggs. Older kids can gain skills working with a heat source to cook eggs or may enjoy learning about the more complex scientific functions of eggs in a combination recipe, like angel food cake! Whether your child is 6 or 16, you can find a task for all skill levels when working with eggs.
This past weekend at Verdant Community Wellness Center, we had an eggscellent kids cooking class and had a blast preparing the tasty recipes below. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
