Chicken or the egg?!

Fun snack or breakfast for your toddler

This recipe is a fun snack or breakfast + craft combination activity that your toddler can help with! Try creating the pieces first and then help your little one to assemble! If you’d like, have a philosophical discussion about which came first – the chicken or the egg? Afterwards, practice using the Doddl Knife and Fork to cut the egg into bite-sized pieces for eating!


Hardboiled Eggs
2 x Baby Carrots thinly sliced into rounds
1 x Cup mixed Green, Spinach, or other leaf lettuce (we used kale)
1 tsp Olive Oil Chia seeds for the eyes.

How to make ‘chicken or the egg?!’

Peel egg and slice with a paring knife from the top to the middle to insert the crowns. And make a small slice on front for the beak. Using the paring knife, cut the rounds into point crowns. We used one of the cut off slivers as a beak. Use 2 pieces of coarsely ground pepper for eyes. Mix green with a tablespoon of olive oil plus salt and pepper to taste and make a “nest” in the middle of the plate. Arrange the egg in the middle of the nest!
