    Thank you for the suggestion, but what exactly is healthy about this except for the egg (if it is organic) and the onion? The ham maybe – also only if it is organic. This will only make the average school kid fat (and worse) if he/she eats is more than once a week. Rather just fry a nice organic egg – or better omelette with some tomatoes, mushrooms … maybe a sprinkle of organic cheese on top for taste, but not necessary.

      Melanie- This breakfast recipe includes protein, carbohydrates, and dairy, making it a well-rounded meal. Please feel free to use organic items when you wish, and to choose low fat dairy (the cheese and evaporated milk in this case). The ham called for is a lean cut of meat.The goal of our Healthy Breakfast Plan is to provide homemade, well-rounded recipes that are part of a balanced diet and are budget-friendly and quick. Our plan does include a “Healthy Start” recipe for each week, which may interest you as well. Thanks for your feedback and please check out the sample plan for more example recipes.
