Egg Nog for the Whole Family

Delicious Egg Nog

For such a simple, quick, treat; egg nog packs a punch of nutrition! As a child, this thick and syrupy milk was gross. But as a mom, I enjoy making this treat throughout the year as a snack. It’s full of proteins and fats, as well as beneficial microbes -if your milk is fresh from a farmer.

There are many nutritious recipes in our cookbook that help us provide good fats and food to orphanages/ foster homes. These group homes get a lot of sugar, processed, and canned foods. Our goal is to provide as many kids with living and beneficial foods as well as share our learnings with other families who will hopefully find and enjoy great health.

Admittedly, this recipe changes a bit each time I make it. In the summer, more ice and cinnamon. In the winter, more eggs and milk. Find you desired taste and enjoy every sip!

In order to make our celebration with the kids interesting, I found some strange beginnings to this well-known, winter drink.

History

First, the origin of egg nog seems to hold roots in England . Additionally, egg nog is a hot drink, at least up until the change to cold, in the mid 1900s. However, the most unusual occurrence is in the USA  with, the “Egg Nog Riot of 1826” noted in this Forbes article.

As always, our goal is to share food health as we build awareness, fun, and education for kids’ health in foster group care and orphanages. Happy Holidays!
