Now that Milo is eating big boy foods I have been experimenting with different ways to get him to eat the not so fun foods. In this instance, EGGS! Neither of us are a fan of eggs, but when it comes to young toddlers there are only so many foods they can eat with their little mouths and fingers. I try to make his meals as balanced as possible while figuring out the things he likes and doesn't. I found a recipe similar to this on Pinterest and decided to simplify it even more. Here is my version of Dinosaur Eggs! (hard boiled eggs)

What You Need:
Food Coloring
Sauce Pan / Pot
Plastic Bags

- Place a single layer of eggs into pan.
- Cover with cold water, about 2 inches above eggs.
- Bring to a boil on high heat.
- Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.
- Count out baggies by how many colors and drop 5 drops of food coloring into each baggie.
- Remove eggs from water and place into a strainer.
- Rinse eggs with cold water for about 1 minute.
- Roll to crack shells, but do not peel.
- Place 1 crack shelled egg into each baggie. (Shake Gently)
- Remove from baggie and peel under cold running water.

This is what you get! Dino Eggs!

    1. I just thought these were the cutest things. My son loves dinos and it actually got him to eat eggs. It's so hard getting protein to children when they are transitioning to solids
