Food for Kids (Pizza, Egg Toasts...)

Children can be groomed to become gourmets, so it is important not to feed them basic stuff like ham and pasta everyday. Mine eat Foie Gras, raw oysters, all sorts of curries and a really rare steak, for example. But then children will be children and simple things often do make them really happy. It is also important to be able to oblige occasionally :-).

One simple food item that my kids like is an Egg Toast or Sandwich. Made with roughly mashed hard boiled eggs, crème fraîche, salt and pepper. Served cold on freshly toasted bread. Or just sandwiched between 2 slices of white or wholemeal bread.

Once in a while, they would also ask for a Pizza. Just simple with tomato purée, olive oil, bacon/ham, onions, grated cheese, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, herbs. Baked in 200ºC hot oven for 15-20 minutes and eaten hot.

PS : Baby Girl drew the above picture in school with her Art Teacher. I thought it was really pretty. Lots of windows and colours. It was apparently based on some story about a guy with a house. She said that the roof must look like an onion...
