Make a Nutritious Dessert

berry and yogurt parfait

Good taste and nutrition belong together — even for dessert. Satisfy your kid's sweet tooth with a good-for-you treat made with wholesome breakfast foods. Try these excellent options:

  • Parfait: Layer berries and cut fruit with yogurt and whole-grain cereal. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
  • Dessert Waffle: Briefly heat peanut butter in the microwave and spread on a toasted whole grain waffle. Top with sliced strawberries or bananas.
  • No-Bake Cookie: Mix a high-fiber cereal with raisins, natural peanut butter and just enough honey to hold it together. Shape into balls.
  • Grilled Fruit: Slice and grill or broil a banana, mango or peach. Once done, sprinkle with cinnamon, toasted almonds or pecans and crushed bran flakes.
