Once upon a time, eggs were considered a “breakfast food”: a hearty, healthy way to start your morning. These days, eggs have kicked the clock to the curb and come out of their collective shell as a delicious, nutritious and endlessly versatile solution for meals or snacks—morning, noon or night. Here are five reasons—and 10 recipes—proving that eggs have earned their rep as the perfect family-friendly food for any style, any budget and any time of the day.

Eggs provide wholesome nutrition

“Small but mighty” is the perfect way to describe eggs: They contain an array of good-for-you vitamins and minerals that support children’s growth and development. Eggs provide vitamins A, B, D, E, as well as iron, lutein (to support eye health), folate (beneficial for pregnant women) and choline (important for cognitive development in children). Throw in eggs’ built-in healthy fats and you’ve got a nutritional powerhouse that fits in the palm of your hand.

Eggs are school-lunch solvers

If you’re looking for an easy solution for school lunches that provides a protein boost, look no further than eggs. Including a source of protein, like eggs, in school lunches can help keep children feeling full throughout the day, sustaining their energy levels and helping them to focus and concentrate longer. Eggs are easily portable—and they keep well in school lunchboxes, too. Tip: Make a big batch of hard-boiled eggs on a Sunday to pack take-along protein into a week’s worth of lunches.
