Since Ryan started daycare, I am forever searching for lunch ideas. I wish but his lunch box doesn’t look like this every day. Some days, I scramble to just get something half decent for him to eat at daycare. I have packed like KFC leftovers in his lunchbox 😅.
Fortunately, his daycare provides all the snacks. We just need to provide his lunch.
I’m going to start taking pictures of his packed lunches and post it here as it goes. I figured Hey putting the photos on my blog is like the Best way for me to remember & get inspired on those leftover KFC nights 🤣
I have been using these reusable lunch containers. But been trying to find a great Bento Box. Please share what Bento Box you use and why you like it.
Another super easy peasy recipe. The original recipe at Myfussyeater.com asks for the vegetables to be sauted first with a bit of oil in a pan but I omitted that step and just put the vegetables right into the mixture. One less step and one less pan to wash is always a win with this Lazy Mommy 😋😋
It is super soft so that makes it a perfect Baby Led Weaning recipe but as your baby grows to be a toddler, it becomes a perfect daycare packed lunch or breakfast. I love easy and multi purpose dishes.
They are also freezer friendly so I usually make a bigger batch and freeze some. Not all Baby Led Weaning recipes are things I personally would like to eat but HEY, I’m not a baby LOL. But these egg frittatas are yummy and I bring them to work for my breakfast too.
NOTES: Feel free to use other vegetables like mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini and etc. If you are storing them in fridge, they would be good for 2-3 days. If you are freezing them, they can stay in the freezer for up to 3 months. I highly recommend that you freeze them individually so anytime you need one, you are not trying to get one frittata that is stuck to a while batch of frittatas. Hope that makes sense. If not, ask me in the Comment section and I’ll answer asap.
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1 cup chopped broccoli
3 large eggs
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp all purpose flour
Salt & Pepper (optional)
Preheat to oven 350 degree. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
In a bowl mix all ingredients until well combined.
Pour this mixture into the dish and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool before cutting it for baby.
Easiest thing to make for your kids and will work as a baby led weaning recipe too. Feel free to use other vegetables and meat. This isn’t a strict recipe. I just happened to have bell peppers and leftover deli ham in my fridge so that was what I used but i have used bacon bits, diced up turkey deli, diced mushrooms, chopped up spinach…you get the drift. This really is a recipe that you can customise to your own liking. I like to add a little salt and pepper but you can omit that if you prefer it not to have any. This is a really great recipe for the freezer. I usually make a batch of them and freeze them. When i know i need one for the next day for ryan packed lunch, I take one out the night before and it be all thawed and ready to eat the next day. Or if you forget to take it out the night before, just heat them up slightly in microwave and there you go. So easy peasy.
