Are your kids hyper in the morning and then crash hard by mid morning? These two super healthy nutritious breakfast recipes are sure to give your tot the boost they need before school. Organic fresh ingredients + Easy Recipes= Happy, healthy and strong tots…happy tots=happy parents and nannies! 

Mini Frittatas for Tots

-Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
-2 large organic eggs
-6 organic liquid egg whites
-Splash of organic milk
-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
-1 teaspoon salt
-2 cup of chopped organic spinach
-1 yellow onion diced finely
-1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
-3 diced garlic cloves
-1 tablespoon of olive oil

In a medium size pan heat oil and sauté the onions and garlic until translucent. On medium heat add spinach, salt and pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes.

In a large bowl whisk eggs/egg whites and milk until frothy. Grease mini muffin tin and pour a little of the veggie mix and cheese in each tin. Pour egg mixture over veggie and cheese until each tin is almost full. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until browned on top. 

Health Scoop
Eggs- is an inexpensive protein that has large amounts of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Research proves that incorporating eggs into your child’s diet can improve their brain concentration, help with behavioral issues, raise test scores and improve math and reading skills. Additionally, eggs are great for a child’s eyesight, bones, hair and skin. (I highly recommend spending the extra buck on organic dairy products. Non-organic dairy products could contain hormones which, could be dangerous for you child)

Healthy Chocolate Chip Pancakes

-3 egg whites
-2 teaspoons of ground flaxseed
-1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon of organic sugar
-2 tablespoons of plain organic Greek yogurt
-1/2 cup of old fashion oats (ground)
-2 teaspoons of organic dark chocolate chip

Pour the old fashion oats in a food processor (or high power blender) and pulse until oats are ground down. In a medium size bowl mix all other ingredients and then add ground oats and mix until combined.

Spray a non-stick frying pan with olive oil spray and spoon batter into pan. Keep an eye on batter and flip when one side is golden brown. When both sides are cooked you can top the pancake with fresh fruit or organic syrup.
