Emoji Frittatas - Fussy eaters' recipe

Most parents will understand the daily struggle of getting their children to eat snacks and meals which are healthy and nutritious. At The Brook Early Education and Care, we’ve found one of the best ways to get children excited about eating fruit and veggies is to present food to them in a fun and unique way. Getting your children involved with cooking and teaching them healthy eating habits early on will help them to learn how to make wise food choices in the future.


We have a quick and easy recipe which incorporates a variety of veggies in a fun way which we guarantee will get your child excited about healthy eating. These emoji frittatas will be enjoyed by even the fussiest eater, and your kids will love decorating them to make funny faces. This particular recipe calls for carrots, potatoes, peas and corn, however, you can always swap these out for other veggies you have on hand that are similar.


What you’ll need:


  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 potato, roughly grated
  • 1 small carrot, roughly grated
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¾ cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Red and green capsicum
  • Cucumber
  • Mini carrots
  • Radish


How to do it:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180° Line each muffin hole with a paper case.
  2. To make the egg mixture, break eggs into a large jug and whisk together with milk.
  3. To make the veggie mixture, mix the potato, carrot, peas and corn in a bowl.
  4. Divide veggie mixture between paper cases. Then pour egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes until puffy and golden. Add veggies on top to create funny faces and cucumber or carrot strips for whiskers.


At The Brook, we ensure your children are provided with tasty and nutritious foods each day, so we encourage parents to continue the good work at home, by feeding your children nutritious foods such as fruit and veggies in their everyday diets.
