Breakkie for Kids
These are a typical breakfast for my kids (3.5 years and 5 year old). They both eat and enjoy the same food. Usually a nice large plate of fresh fruits and nuts.. what goes on the plate usually depends on what’s on hand at the time. We usually rotate on different fruits and nuts daily.
My kids love their avocado and nuts with drizzles of honey over the top! They always do the “MMmmmMMMMMMMmmmmmm…” all the way through it. My son loves his oats with drizzles of maple syrup but my daughter just loves hers plain without the syrup. She calls herself the ‘plain girl’. They also prefer to eat their fruits and oats separately… They first dive into their fruit and nut plate then into their oats.
Servings for 2 little kids
Fruit and nut plate Ingredients:
½ large avocado, cubed
1/2 banana, sliced
A few black grapes
Mixture of raw natural nuts (brazil, walnuts, almonds, macadamia)
1 heap tsp organic honey
Slice and chop up the fruits and place onto serving plates.
Place desired nuts onto the serving plates.
Drizzle over the top of the nuts and avocado with honey.
Super Quick Oatmeal recipe:
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup boiled kettle water
1/3 cup soy milk
2-3 tbsp coconut cream
1-2 tbsp organic honey (more or less depending on taste)
Place oats into a small pot
Add boiled water, stir and let sit for 10mins to soften.
Add soy milk and coconut cream and stir over medium heat for 1-2mins (the oats should be soft).
Take off heat and add honey.
If it is too thick add more soy milk.
Divide into 2 small serving bowls.
Add 2 tbsps of chia seed pudding to each bowl and roughly mix.
Let the kids drizzle their own maple syrup over the top of their own oatmeal if desired. Serve alongside a good plate/bowl of fresh fruits and nuts.
Note: The oatmeal pictured above is actually raw overnight oats, which I often rotate with this cooked oatmeal version from time to time. We usually have this cooked version when I was not able to prepare the overnight oats the night before.
Second Picture of Oatmeal is overnight soaked Steal-cut Oats and Oat bran sprinkled with raw hemp seed hearts. Slightly chewy from the steal-cut oats - Kids and I love it. Those round balls in the picture above are nuts, seeds, dates and carob based. I will put the recipe up shortly.
It may seem a lot but my 3.5 and 5 year old have no problem eating it all... In fact after this, they often have the appetite for more and I give them additional things like pistachios (their fav), crackers, dried mango pieces, fudge, carob chocolate, piece of toast/pancake etc…
Above squares are seeds, nuts and nut butter based raw unbake squares.. recipe for these will go up soon...
