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.
One banana 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.
150 grams rolled oats 150 ml milk 150 ml Greek yogurt One banana Handful of strawberries Teaspoon of honey
A healthy breakfast recipe that’s ready and waiting for you in the fridge. Slice the banana and strawberries and mix in an airtight container with the rest of the ingredients. Seal and store overnight in the fridge. Serves four – and fires them up for the day.
Breakfast ideas for kids can take a little preparation but this one will make your kitchen smell great.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Spread the almonds and oats on a greased a baking sheet and place in the oven for about 15 minute, or until lightly golden.
Heat the honey and peanut butter in a small pan. While it warms gently, blitz the dates with a little water to form a paste. Stir this in with the honey and peanut butter.
Place all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl, add the honey mixture and mix well. Spoon the mixture on to the greased baking tray and press down with the back of the spoon. Bake for 15 minutes or until it’s golden brown and smelling delicious.
