Virginia Feature: Petit Veggie Omelets

If you’ve ever struggled to incorporate vegetables into your toddler’s diet, you’re not alone. I consider it a win if my daughter will at least give a new veggie a try, even if she doesn’t always eat it the first, or second time it is served.

These bite-sized veggie omelets are, as the French would say, a great “manière cachée,” or secret way to sneak healthy food onto your child’s plate. With all the scents and flavors of a cheesy Provençal pizza, these muffin-sized omelets are as tasty as they are nutritious. But your toddler never has to know.

My daughter and I often make our petit veggie omelets together on Sundays. That way they are ready to heat and eat for breakfast the next morning. While they stay fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days, they rarely last beyond Wednesday. Enjoy with a side of fresh berries. Or try them sliced in half, on top of two pieces of buttered toast.   Et, voilà!

Bon appétit!

  1. These were a lifesaver in the early sleep deprived weeks after my second daughter was born. Protein – check, veggies – check, kid approved – check, those protein bars I bought didn’t stand a chance.

    1. So very happy they helped feed everyone around the clock, and get you over the “newborn with a toddler” hump! That’s the best compliment.
