Share the LOVE with breakfast!

Making breakfast before school, or work, is a good habit to have and helps you to have a better day and stay healthy!


Eating a healthy breakfast can help your brain work better, help you remember more, keep you from missing school, and be happier more often. Who wouldn’t want to share that love with their family?

The best kinds of breakfast are healthy ones, that fill in lots of spaces on the MyPlate plate.


We made breakfast today with whole grain toast, a protein filled egg, fresh blueberries and a cold glass of milk. How many MyPlate parts does that fill? What else should we eat today to get all the parts filled up?

Check out the steps below to make your own Valentine’s Day egg-in-a-hole so your family can have a healthy breakfast to get their day going too!

  1. Cut a heart with a cookie cutter from a slice of whole grain toast. You’ll need your muscles for this.!
  2. Crack an egg into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a pan on medium heat with a small amount of olive oil or butter. Add your toast and carefully pour in the egg. (Oil and butter are sometimes foods. Just a little bit will keep your egg from sticking.)
  4. Cook the egg for about a minute, or until it is halfway done. 
  5. Using a spatula, carefully flip the egg and toast and cook the egg the rest of the way, about 30 seconds. You’re done!

Don’t waste your toast heart; serve it with a little bit of jam, or make a peanut butter and jam sandwich for your lunch. Thank you for creating with us!
