Easy Mother’s Day Breakfast ideas for Preschoolers
Your preschooler may not be ready for a stint on Top Chef, but they can help you to make a much-deserved Mother’s Day breakfast. Keep in mind, there are plenty of ways that young children can help out in the kitchen — without actually cooking. Never allow your child to use the stove, oven or any other heated cooking appliance. Ans always supervise your child in the kitchen at all times.
Your child can whip up their own special Mother’s Day granola mix. Combine granola, chopped nuts, dried fruit or chocolate chips to make the perfect batch. Pour it into a baggie, seal the mix and have your child make a crafty gift tag.
You can chop melon, strawberries, apples, pears and mom’s other favorite fruits. Help your child to use cookie cutters (such as stars or hearts) to turn the fruit pieces into adorable little shapes. Toss the fruit salad together and serve it with a side of flavored yogurt dressing.
Turn regular toast into something that’s truly special. Make a few pieces of toast for your child to ‘decorate’. Your child can smooth yogurt (or a sweet mix of frosting and yogurt) onto the toast. Add rainbow sprinkles for that special breakfast appeal.
