A humble egg is high in protein, vitamins A, B12 and D, riboflavin (B2), folate (B9), omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Egg yolks are one of the best sources of Lutein, which has been linked to better eyesight and lower risk of eye disease.
All these essentials are needed by the body, but try telling that to your kids, they will look at you funny and refuse to eat it. All they see is a boring, unassuming white gelatinous blob, hence, kids are most likely to pass it over for something more appealing. So how can we take this boring but vital food and turn it into something our kids will devour?
Egg molds are a fairly easy way to add some happiness and fun to mealtime, lunchbox, party, or picnic. A cute bunny or bear face, a zippy little car, a star and a heart can bring a smile to your children faces and invite them to take a bite. My son was never a fan of egg yolk and has never eaten a whole egg until I presented it to him in a car shape. He gobbled it all up! After all, egg yolk wasn't yuck when it was a part of egglishious car.
But wait there is more! These cool molds will turn boring rice into fun bites which are perfect for convincing picky eaters to eat their food. They are also great for making shapes out of playdough. So simple, yet so versatile!
