Quiche! It's What's for Lunch?

The perfect make-ahead meal, quiches can be baked three to four days in advance, then refrigerated and sliced to serve as needed.

Pack a cold slice for school lunch (keep it cold with a frozen juice carton), or if the kids are home on holiday break (and you've got your hands full) they can pop a slice in the microwave.

We chose a spinach quiche here, but there's more where that came from. Feel free to swap it with a different quiche to suit your child's tastes. Serve with a piece of fruit, and skim milk or water (and we threw in a festive dessert too).

Why Quiche for the kids? Because...

  • It's a great way to use up leftover meat and/or vegetables.
  • If your kids aren't keen on green, quiches are the perfect hiding spot for veggies!
  • They are easy to make vegetarian.

Eggs Make the Meal

  • Eggs are good for you! They're an excellent source of protein, containing about 6 grams, with only 4.5 grams of fat (and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated).
  • They're cheap. You can purchase the bulk of your dish for less than four dollars!
  • They're delicious. Need we say more?
