Quinoa Frittata - Easy Toddler Meal Ideas

An easy base recipe to nail that I got from Daisy, once you have the base sorted, you can add to it whatever you have in your fridge / whatever the kids will eat at that time.

Fussy toddlers require many options in your kitbag, this is a good addition. Pat (1yo) loves these, I often add broccoli, spinach and cheese. Bake in a tray or muffin tins. Freeze for easy snacks or breakfasts. 

10 eggs 
1 cup dry quinoa
2 cups liquid stock
1 cup water
olive oil 
100g spinach 
1 head broccoli 
100g cheese 

Cook the quinoa in water and stock. Cool the quinoa. 

Cook broccoli in oven or boiling water (or grate so it is in small pieces that will cook in the egg mixture). Lightly fry spinach in olive oil. Cool.

Crack all of the eggs into a large bowl, add in cooled quinoa, cooled veggies and cheese. Mix well, pour into a lined baking tray and cook in 180°c oven for 30-40 until set. Cool, slice and serve.

Feeding the kids can always feel like a bit of a battle, having a stash of easy toddler meals in the freezer is setting you up for success on those hard days. Recipe ideas for kids can bit a bit hit and miss, always try new foods with the kids more than once, it can often take them 5-10 times before they accept it! When toddler meal ideas become too overwhelming, don't forget to stash the freezer with The Whole Bowl Co.'s collection of tried and tested meals, see our Mini Bowls Collection.
