My kids love hard boiled eggs. They are high in protein and a perfect addition to their lunch, or a quick snack.

I love to have them in the fridge ready to go anytime they are wanting something to eat.

Not only are they a delicious snack, but they are great for deviled eggs or egg salad sandwiches.
