Fancy this – check out these breakfast recipes from celebrity chefs in the following Parents.Com article. Fun, fancy and delicious!
My 5-year-old loves simple toaster waffles with PB or PB&J on it – a simple switch from the traditional sandwich and waffles with butter and syrup!
The home-made chewy granola balls (or make bars or cookie cutters for cute shapes) is simple and you put in whatever healthy & yummy stuff your kids like – i.e. yogurt covered raisins, ground flax seed, etc.
And who doesn’t like a fruit kabob – sweet seasonal fruit on a stick – make it fun and the kids will eat it – they can even make their own kabob after mom or dad has cleaned and cut the fruit up!
So change things up and be your child(ren)’s Celebrity Chef!
