The freshest meals are always better than overly processed ones as the former most likely carry more nutrients and higher amounts of biotin. Fruits and vegetables are also rich in biotin and other vitamins. Among the many vegetables available for eating, cabbage and broccoli offer some of the highest biotin volumes.

Though vegetables and fruits may not offer as much protein as eggs, they provide other health benefits that our body needs, such as zinc, calcium, and other vitamins. As you’ll find below, I have outlined a recipe your children can enjoy at lunch that isn’t only incredibly delicious but also super healthy. Broccoli contains high amounts of calcium, but not too many children are fond of eating the little greens. When you put this recipe for lunch, you can bet that your children will start to enjoy loving their veggies.
