Now, how easy was that!
Allow 2 eggs and 2 toasts per child.
The secret with soft boiled eggs is:
Toast the bread.
When toasted, spread with low fat cream cheese rather than butter.
Cut into four long strips - they're called "soldiers".
Enjoy the soft boiled eggs with soldiers!
For healthy snack recipes for kids, never use margarine as it's synthetic and we regard it as unhealthy.
Butter is delicious and natural, but to reduce our fat intake, we prefer to use low fat cream cheese (Philadelphia Cheese) as a spread on bread or toast.
When microwaving, put a lid over the container to prevent food "exploding" and making a mess of the microwave oven.
We always use ceramic rather than plastic containers in the microwave oven as not all plastic containers are stable and some may become chemically unstable in the microwave oven. Most plastic containers do have markers indicating if they're safe for use in a microwave oven, but for children, they may not know how to check or may forget, so it is easier to teach them to use a ceramic container.
