What makes these scrambled eggs so good for your baby?

  • Eggs are one of the most nutrient-rich foods available to us. One egg contains 13 essential vitamins and high-quality protein that support the growth and development of babies.

  • Eggs are adaptable and versatile. Make plain eggs or add some herbs, spices or/and veggies to boost flavor and nutrition.

  • Butter or Oil are good sources of fats, which provide calories, much needed for growing babies.

Course: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner Prep: 2 min Cook: 3 min Servings: 1

 

Ingredients

1 egg

1 teaspoon breast milk or formula (optional or can also use whole cow's milk)

1 teaspoon butter or oil


Preparation Steps

  1. In a bowl, add the eggs and milk. Using a whisk, beat vigorously until uniform in appearance.

  2. Melt butter/oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Make sure it coats the entire pan.

  3. Add eggs when the butter begins to bubble and foam or when oil starts to shimmer. Reduce heat to medium low.

  4. Allow the liquid egg to sit for 10 seconds or so. Using a silicone spatula, gently and slowly scrape across the bottom and around the edges of the pan.

  5. As the eggs cook, pull it towards the center of the pan. The surface should be slightly wet, not runny. Try not to break the curds. Remove from heat.

  6. Break up the scramble to your baby's age-appropriate shape and size.


 

Notes


Suitable: for the whole family from 6 months old. Eggs can be introduced as soon as babies are ready to start solid foods, generally around 6 months of age. Egg allergies are common, so always begin with small quantities, and watch for any signs of a reaction.


Age up: If offering this recipe to an older baby (12+ months) or an adult you may add a little salt if desired. Keep in mind that it is recommended to avoid salt for babies under 12 months.


Flavor up:

  • Add a little grated cheese (add at the end of cooking, just before taking it off the heat), if you have already ruled out allergy or sensitivity to dairy.

  • Experiment with finely chopped fresh herbs such as basil, chives, cilantro (coriander) dill, parsley, thyme or oregano.

  • Try a pinch of cumin, garam masala, turmeric or curry powder.


Boost nutrition:

  • Try adding a tablespoon of seeds such as chia seeds, flaxseed, or hemp seeds. They will add texture, plant protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.

  • Add well-cooked and finely chopped veggies such as pepper (capsicum), mushrooms, leek, and tomato.

  • Instead of adding grated cheese, try adding nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor with added vitamins and minerals.

  • Add cooked quinoa to baby's eggs - such a brilliant way to prevent tiny grains from flying everywhere. If you've served it before, you know what I mean.

Involving your children:

  • 6+ months: have them watch you prepare. Show them how you combine all the ingredients. Tell them the names of the ingredients as you add them to help build baby's vocabulary.

  • 18+ months: have them watch you prepare. Show them how to and let them try to combine all the ingredients. Show them how to and let them try to crack and beat the eggs (make sure to wash their hands after handling eggs). Show them how to and let them try to measure the spices and other ingredients. Tell them the names of the ingredients as you add them to help build their vocabulary.


★Focus on offering single ingredient foods or very simple recipes (1-3 ingredients) at the early stages - the first 1-2 months of starting solids. You may offer more elaborated recipes on a more occasional basis for babies beginning to eat. This will help your baby get familiar with the natural taste of foods but still getting it "pimped-up" in recipes every once in a while. It will also allow you to expose your baby to a few different foods, and make it easier for you to rule out some possible food allergies or intolerance before you start offering preparations with several ingredients regularly.


★Baby's under 12 months should not drink cow's milk as a main beverage, but it's ok to use it in preparations you offer to baby. Dairy is another common allergen, so it is advised to introduce both egg and dairy separately before using cow's milk in this egg recipe.


★Make sure not to overcook eggs as they become hard and unappetizing.


★We recommend introducing potentially allergenic food on its own first for at least 2 times, before mixing with other foods. This makes it easier to recognize a reaction.
