Why is breakfast so important for kids?
Kids have really busy little lifestyles and are always on the go. h
Heading off to school for the day without eating anything just wouldn’t be good.
I know my kids need to eat breakfast otherwise it definitely shows in their behaviour, without breakfast they’re less able to concentrate, they’re more tired and lethargic and much more irritable.
Eating breakfast boosts their energy and gives them nutrients that they’d otherwise just miss out on.
Owl Toast Ingredients
Our owl toast is filled with healthy ingredients and even counts towards the kids five-a-day.
- 1 English Muffin – you could use wholemeal muffins if you prefer – just slice it in half ready to toast.
- 2 tbs Peanut Butter – my kids prefer smooth peanut butter. You could use any other nut butter you like or even Nutella.
- 1 Banana – choose a medium sized banana – simply sliced
- 2 Strawberries – pick nice ripe juice strawberries – simply sliced
- 4 Blueberries – pick juicy blueberries.
Any leftover fruit pieces you could mix into a quick smoothie with natural yogurt and milk and serve alongside the toasted English muffin.
How to make our easy breakfast ideas – Owl Toast
These little owl toasts are super easy to make and a fab way to squeeze extra fruit into the kids diets.
- First slice the English muffin in half.
- Toast the English muffin until just lightly browning.
- Spread the toasted muffin halves with peanut butter – I usually use smooth peanut butter to make these, the kids don’t tend to like the crunchy variety.
- Choose two big juicy strawberries and slice them – this will make the owl wings.
- Cut two smaller triangles of strawberry too – these will make the little owl beaks.
- Choose some juicy blueberries to be owl eye balls…
- Peel and slice the bananas – these will make the owl eyes.
- Put the banana slices onto the peanut butter spread muffins as eyes.
- Put the blueberries on top of the banana slices to complete the owl eyes.
- Add the strawberry slices as wings and the little strawberry triangles as the owl beaks. Your toasted muffins will now look like little owls!
- You could just give all the fruit pieces to the kids and let them design their own owl faces.
Make our healthy kids breakfast idea your way
- switch the muffins for wholegrain rolls, crumpet, rice cakes or even small American style pancakes.
- try out different types of fruit toppings – kiwi and raspberries work well.
- switch the peanut butter for cashew nut butter or any other nut butter you like… you could even use chocolate spread if you wished.
- try making different animal toast – maybe hedgehogs or bears or just monster faces. Let the kids have a play with some chopped fruit and create their own super cute animal faces.
