Recipes for Kids: Healthy Omelette

Omelette recipes for kids are an easy way to make sure your kids get all the nutrition they need for breakfast. Check out this simple omelette recipe!

Finding breakfast recipes for kids that are more than the standard cold cereal can be difficult on a busy school day.   As the weather cools down, I like to send the kids to school with something warm and filling.  I don’t have enough time in the morning to make a full breakfast of pancakes, eggs and bacon, but I can put together a fun and quick one by making  this healthy omelette.

 

An omelette in our home generally has more than eggs in it.  What it has really depends on what is in the refrigerator.   If we have leftover meat from dinner the night before, it may contain meat and cheese.  If it is summer time and the garden has been producing a lot of vegetables, I may make one that has zucchini, yellow summer squash and onions.   Sometimes, we enjoy having it with only cheese and sometimes we leave the cheese out.

If you want a healthy omelette, you have to watch for the fat!  While some people add milk or cream to the eggs, it isn’t necessary at all.   All you really need is eggs and whatever filling or additions you want to add. Another thing that you need to be careful of is what you cook in.  Some people add butter to the pan to prevent sticking.  This can add extra fat.  If you have a non-stick pan, you will not need to add any fat to the pan when cooking. Vegetables are a lower fat choice than meat and cheese would be.

This omelette will make one adult size or two child-size servings.  To stretch it further, you can add fresh fruit and toast.
