Last week Kat shared breakfast recipes that can be made ahead or are quick to make. Today, I’d like to share some breakfast recipes that older kids can make themselves.
My husband goes to work early so I need to get myself, Parker, and my 5 year-old daughter Paige ready and out the door. Parker is an early riser and is often hungry when he wakes up. If I’m finishing my morning workout, he sometimes makes his own breakfast, which is helpful. Here are some recipes that many kids can make themselves.
- Crispy Granola– Crispy Granola freezes well so it’s easy to pour into a bowl and add milk. Sliced banana could also be added.
- Yogurt Parfaits– Kids can have fun layering fruit, yogurt, and toppings into a bowl to create their own yogurt parfait. The Crispy Granola is also a good option for this.
- Peanut Butter Pita Pockets– For kids who like peanut butter, this is a fun way to eat it.
- Berry and Greens Smoothies– This recipe makes eight smoothies that you can store in individual jars in the freezer. Move a smoothie from the freezer to refrigerator the night before and they will be ready for kids the next morning.
For kids who are ready to start preparing their own breakfast, remind them of the importance of washing their hands before food preparation.
