Why is breakfast so important for kids?
Kids have really busy little lifestyles and are always on the go – 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 – 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.

How to make Owl Toast
These little owl toasts are super easy to make and a fab way to squeeze extra fruit into the kids diets.
- 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.
- 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!
Make owl toast 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.
