Snack recipe

Here is a cute recipe adapted from one I saw in Potpourri magazine.  It is always a good idea to serve a vegetable at snack for a little extra "insurance" towards making sure kids get all of the vegetables they need in a day! 

Buried Treasure Eggs
12 large eggs
1 cup skim milk
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 orange bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
salt and black pepper to taste

Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl and mix together using a whisk.  Heat a medium skillet over medium  heat and pour the egg/milk mixture in.  Cook and stir until the eggs are thoroughly cooked.  Add the peppers, onion, salt and pepper.  Serve warm.  Encourage the children to search their eggs for the different colors of "buried treasure" (the peppers)!

Crediting information:
Makes 8 servings, each serving creditable for 1 meat/meat alternate and 1/4 cup of the vegetable requirement at lunch or supper for 3-5 year old children. (Or makes16 servings meat/meat alternate at lunch or supper if not counting the vegetables toward the vegetable requirement).  If served at snack, makes 48 servings of meat/meat alternate for 3-5 year old children.
