    Default Egg free lunches for daycare

    I was all set to make chicken and veg nuggets and zuccini slice etc for 11 month old DS to take to daycare for lunches, when I realised they have an egg-free policy. So now I need some ideas for egg-free lunches please? Just when I thought I had it sorted!

    You could do the nuggets without the egg ? What about fish cakes, noodles, meatballs, falafel, mini pizza, spinach and cheese sausage rolls

    Thanks again Elijah's Mum! Don't the nuggets fall apart without the egg?

    Hi maybe breadcrumbs will bind the nugget mixture together. Can I ask a question?! My bub will start day care next year (really need to start looking into it!), do day care centres not provide lunches anymore? Or just some don't?

    Mix bread crumbs with a little milk until its kind of a pasty texture to use for binding the nuggets. Its how we bind things like meatballs etc at my old child care centre.

    I got them to stick together just fine, thank you! Now to just get him to actually eat them :/

    Re daycare, we have to take lunches for the under-3 kids and they provide morning and afternoon tea. 3+ kids are fully catered for. I'm not sure if this is typical of other daycare centres.

    We have a girl at our centre allergic to egg and we use a packet of egg free stuff from the supermarket. You add it into cooking instead of eggs! It's great that she never has to miss out on cooking experiences.

    Not too exciting, but DD has always loved avo & cream cheese sandwiches. Does he like beans? You could make bean salad/mexican beans - yum! And chicken & pesto pasta, rice balls, roast veg with cous cous. A lot of these things are good hot or cold.

    Our daycare provides all meals for all ages. I would struggle if I had to provide food - I dread school lunches!

    All centres are different. I have only worked in centres that provide lunches etc.

    I make rice paper rolls for DS. Easy to do the night before, I just put whatever veg we have - cucumber, carrot, bean sprouts, capsicum and a little chicken or tofu.
