I recently read a fab article over on Finding Dutchland all about how Dutch children are the happiest children in the world. It’s a really inspirational article, totally makes you think about things in a different way and since reading it I’ve definitely tried to adopt some of the laid back Dutch ways with brilliant consequences and happier kids!
One of the points mentioned is that Dutch kids get to eat chocolate sprinkle sandwiches for breakfast. Now I’m all for encouraging more happiness so we gave those sandwiches a try.
A Dutch style treat of chocolate sprinkle sandwiches for breakfast - bring on the happiness!
- Slices of bread - use tiger bread or bloomer
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Slice the bread, spread with butter and sprinkle over the chocolate sprinkles.
I add a piece of fruit & glass of milk when serving.
What can I say? The kids were totally happy once they got over being so puzzled that I’d let them have chocolate sprinkles for breakfast. Now to work on all the other points mentioned in The 8 Secrets of Dutch Kids, the Happiest Kids in the World!
