We all know that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It has to fill us with energy to face a new day, so it is essential to instil the habit of eating well when children are still young. The excuses we always make when we don’t have breakfast is the lack of time and the haste. But none of them will be valid anymore because we are here to help you with 5 recipes for easy, rich and quick breakfasts.
A full breakfast consisting of fruit, yogurt and cereals. This proposal is made with banana, but you can vary and use strawberry, pineapple or kiwi as the main ingredient. Preparing this breakfast is so simple that children can help you or even they can make themselves. Start by pouring the cereals (which you have previously crushed slightly) or granola into a plate. Peel, cut the bananas in half and dip them in yogurt. If it’s Greek type, denser, use a knife. Finally, coat the bananas with the cereal/granola, place them in the sticks and they are ready to eat. Another option is to use chopped cookies instead of cereals.
