Tips from theAsianparent:
- According to Medical News Today, "Mushrooms are naturally low in sodium, fat, cholesterol, and calories and have often been referred to as "functional foods." Rich in B vitamins such as riboflavin and folate, and being the only vegan source of Vitamin D, these fungi are also found to help fight cancers and diabetes, improve heart health and stimulate immunity.
 
-  Feel free to switch the mushroom options to any of your favourites - golden enoki, white button, portobello - the choice is yours!
 
- Cheese and mushrooms are like the best of friends - who doesn't love them together? Cheddar cheese provides the body with calcium, Vitamin D, potassium and proteins - exactly what a growing child needs! Bake these for breakfast and they'll definitely be a hit with the kids!
