Your kids can’t tuck into Coco Pops every day – so how about getting them involved in healthy breakfast recipes they’ll love to prepare and eat?
We’ve come up with four tasty breakfast ideas for kids that they’ll enjoy eating almost as much as they’ll enjoy creating.
So check out our healthy breakfast recipes…
Greek yogurt with honey
Soft fruits (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
It’s a fruity yogurt but presentation is everything – and that includes an appealing name. Place alternating layers of fruit and yogurt in a glass, topping with a little more fruit. The sweetness of the honey will cut through any sharpness from the soft fruits. Remember that young bones build better with full-fat dairy products.
Two handfuls of frozen mixed berries
One cup fruit juice (apple or orange work best)
Tip everything into a blender or smoothie maker and blitz until lump free. Pour into a tall glass and serve with wholemeal toast. Three of their five a day in one drink – and using frozen berries means there’s no ice to make your smoothie watery. And it proves healthy breakfast recipes can be packed full of flavour.
