Yummy Healthy Breakfast's For Your Kids
Breakfast can be a nightmare for your kids, with shopping aisles full of brightly coloured boxes full of sugary rubbish, and the healthier options, lets me honest, look pretty boring through kid’s eyes. So how can you help your child make healthy choices for breakfast that will fill them up for longer, and they will enjoy? We have shared some of our favourite recipes to help.
1) Buckwheat Pancakes
Pancakes can be made healthier, simply by swopping around the ingredients and offering yummy but healthy toppings. I use a buckwheat flour recipe, but you can also use rice flour, or brown flour too. Toppings can be a mix of fruit with yoghurt or maple syrup, honey, frozen yoghurt or agave syrup.
Lollies for breakfast I hear you cry. Don’t panic, these are homemade lollies using yoghurt, smoothies, fruit etc. A simple way to encourage your child to have some fruit, protein, and a breakfast that will start their day well.
Here are some of my favourite recipes
Nutella Yoghurt Lollies
Blueberry Oatmeal Lollies
Yoghurt Granolla Lollies
