Easy & Fun Breakfast Recipes



Are you tired of hearing about New Year's Resolutions yet?!?!  I think diet and fitness are the number 1 resolution every year but I urge you to consider health and lifestyle instead. As part of your goal to improve your health you should always start the morning with a nutritious breakfast.  Mornings around my house are always nuts so feeding two little mouths (and mine) can be a challenge.  Breakfast has to be quick, easy and appealing to little ones.  When you think healthy you dont always think kid friendly so I started thinking outside the box or rather inside the cereal box.  Cereal is a very quick and easy option but it doesnt give you the protein you need to start the day with a bang.  Im sharing two new recipes with you that are kid tested and mother approved.  For both of these recipes Im using Post Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch, which is a new favorite for us.  The girls loved both of these dishes and it adds some variety to our same ole same ole routine.  Not only were they gobbled up with smiles but the girls got some much needed protein in their breakfast.
