Make It Monday - Dippy Egg and Soldiers (gluten free)

*help celebrate PMK's one year anniversary this week by recommending this site to a friend! If you like it, pass it on.

Gluten free. Celiac disease. Colitis. Crohn's disease. Fruit Malabsorption. These are all terms we are hearing more and more in relation to our precious children and it is heartbreaking. A childhood should be filled with running, playing, and laughing; not tummy aches, fatigue, and worse. This week we are taking a look at Gluten free options for kids and will be coming back to you next week with our finds - local products, places to eat, and a few things to make at home.

Here is a protein-packed breakfast that I have eaten since I was a toddler and my children love it too. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?  Eggs are pretty much perfectly gluten free, but if the chicken was raised on gluten grains there could be traces that transfer to kids who are gluten sensitive (see the article below).

We call this breakfast "Dippy Egg and Soldiers" and little kids learn to love it for the cute egg cup and the fun of dipping the toast in the egg. We boil the egg for 6 minutes, but it depends on how you like it. 6 minutes is not too runny, not too hard-boiled. The bread I served here is a good gluten free one from Whole Foods. Add toasted cheese for the ultimate soldiers! Start your own collection of egg cups...

                                                                 are eggs gluten free?
