Make it a Breakfast Bar

Make it a Breakfast Bar

Let your kids build their own breakfast with a breakfast bar. Similar to a salad bar, a breakfast bar includes a variety of foods to mix and match. Little ones love to create unusual combinations by mixing, stacking and organizing ingredients. Will peanut butter glue the berries to a waffle? Or will yogurt smother nuts and fruit? No matter what nutritious combinations they come up with, they'll love the sense of control a breakfast bar offers. Here are some other ideas.

  • Waffles
  • Peanut butter
  • Lowfat or nonfat yogurt
  • Cottage cheese
  • Variety of dry cereals
  • Variety of berries and sliced fruit
  • Cooked apples or fruit compote
  • Chopped nuts
  • Raisins and dried cranberries
  • Lowfat or nonfat milk
