I felt like making a special breakfast for Brynn this morning, and I want to make it healthy so I try and use flavor, color, and fun to make it special instead of sugar. So, I made her a fruit and yogurt sun since she loves making fruit art. I sliced apples, spread natural peanut butter, and placed a dried cherry on top for the rays. For the body of the sun, I took plain whole Greek yogurt with honey and then topped with fresh blueberries and macadamia nuts. Fat, protein, healthy carbs, vitamins and minerals for the day! She ate it right up. 🙂 Also, this is such an easy breakfast recipe for kids, and less work in the mornings is always a plus!
Here is another example of the fruit art I have done for her. I like to do this on the weekends so she has time to play. I make sure that it includes yogurt and nuts so there is fat and protein with the sugar from fruit. Kids love variety and fun with their food. It is sometimes hard to find fun breakfast ideas for kids that is also a healthy breakfast. So, try this out with different fruits, and make it fun. You have so many options with each season or holiday! Get creative!
Here are some fun breakfast ideas:
- Red, white and blue art for 4th of July (berries, nuts, and yogurt)
- Flower art for Spring (sliced apples or oranges can be the petals)
- The colors of all (red, orange and yellow fruits)
- Snowman scene (use bananas for the snowmen circles)
