Get Young Kids To Make Breakfast And Eat It Too

BY La Jolla Mom

When it becomes difficult to convince young kids to sit down and eat a healthy kids breakfast, sometimes having them make it themselves–sort of like a kids craft–works. This method has been helping us lately. She’s been eating self-made yogurt parfaits for breakfast and afternoon snacks.

I store the ingredients at her level so she can grab them on her own. I just get her the big glass (which is part of a set purchased at the Hotel Del Coronado, in case you’re curious) and let do it all herself. She loves it.

Kids Yogurt Parfait Recipe

Fruit: Berries, bananas, oranges or anything else you have on hand.
Crunchy Cereal: I find that Kashi Go Lean works well.
Yogurt: We have been using Stonyfield Vanilla.

Show your kids how to layer the ingredients. They may not do it, but my daughter treats this part a little bit like an art project. Then, let them eat it.

I also am trying to teach her to only make enough for her to eat. She made a giant one and abandoned it, so we’re working on this, but I think this is another important lesson, too.
