Granola Yogurt Fruit Breakfast is about as easy as it gets to provide kids with a nutritious breakfast at the start of the day. The vanilla yogurt is plenty sweet—no need for sugar! Vary the fruit that you use to suit the season and to change the taste so it doesn’t get boring.
You will need:
Granola or dry cereal (Cheerios or raw Oatmeal work, too)
Strawberries, tops removed and cut up
Blueberries, organic, if possible, thoroughly washed
Sliced Almonds (available at Costco) or chopped walnuts
Optional: Dried Cranberries or raisins
Put the dry cereal in a bowl. Everything else becomes a topping.
Put 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt on top. Sprinkle the strawberry pieces and blueberries over that. Sprinkle the sliced almonds or walnuts and dried cranberries (if you are using them). Vary the grain with raw oatmeal, O’s, or other dried whole grain cereal and different fruits for a different taste each week. Use the fruit in season to lower your expenses and ensure that you have fresh fruit that didn’t come from Antarctica!
Don’t skip the nuts–that’s your protein and good fat for this dish. Add almond milk, soy milk, or regular milk to soften the cereal and enjoy!
