Mother's Day Breakfasts Kids Can Actually Make
Little ones will love placing the berries and chocolate into each cavity. It's like a delicious breakfast puzzle!
To Prepare: Fill the dimples of cooked toaster waffles with berries and chocolate. Try blueberries with white-chocolate chips, or cut-up strawberries with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Drizzle with syrup before serving.
Bagels with Cucumber and Lox
If your bagels aren't already halved, let dad do the slicing. Young kids can spread the cream cheese with the back of a spoon and layer the cucumber and lox with their fingers.
To Prepare: Spread halved sesame bagels with cream cheese and top with cucumber slices and lox.
Lemon-Poppy Yogurt Trifle
Store-bought lemon-poppy muffins make easy work of this layered breakfast treat. With no cooking or cutting required, even the youngest kids can help prepare breakfast for Mom.
To Prepare: Crumble store-bought lemon poppy seed muffins and layer in a small glass with honey-sweetened Greek yogurt.
Fancy Breakfast Toast
Toast and topping options are almost endless. Here are a few ideas to get the kids started:
- Swirl on honey-sweetened ricotta cheese. Then add sliced fruit.
- Layer peanut butter or almond butter, sliced banana, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- Spread on a bit of softened butter and add thinly sliced hard-boiled egg.
- Peel, pit, and smash an avocado, smear on top, and sprinkle with a little salt.
- Cover with whipped cream cheese and top with smoked salmon. Sprinkle with chopped dill for extra credit.
Most of these tasks can be accomplished with a butter knife, but kids should enlist a grown-up for help peeling and pitting the avocado.
Smoothies are a nearly perfect food for kids to make. Toss everything into a blender and push a button -- just don't forget to put the top on first! To more easily blend smoothies, put the liquid or yogurt in first and the ice or frozen fruit in last.
This creamy drink will be the perfect start to your Mother's Day. Peanut butter, banana, and cocoa...what's not to love?
Ham and Cheese Crepes
Skip making homemade crepes and buy a bag at the supermarket. When kids pop these savory roll-ups into the oven they'll need a bit of adult supervision. Otherwise this delicious French-style breakfast is assembly-only.
Overnight Oatmeal and Quinoa
Yes, you -- or your partner or an older kid -- prep this breakfast the night before. But in the morning all the little ones need to do is warm this healthy porridge up in the microwave and top it with fruit.
