If you want something whole grain but your child had a doughnut in mind, compromise with these baked berry-filled treats, which can be made the night before.
Start the day off with a smile! You get the protein and fiber you want, and your child gets something totally fun.
Try our all-purpose batter. Add your favorite muffin mix-ins to half, and your kids' picks to the rest. We made carrot-raisin and chocolate-raspberry.
Veggies, eggs, cheese, and whole-grain toast -- it's the perfectly balanced breakfast. And pretty too!
This recipe makes two parfaits and one smoothie -- you decide who gets what!
