Breakfast ideas for busy mornings

Getting a good start to the day is essential for any child, scientific studies have shown that eating a good breakfast makes a big difference to school related performance.

Dody recommends these easy to prepare breakfasts that take less than 3 minutes at home.

- Avocado on rye toast with a slice of tomato
- Porridge with berries or banana and honey – popular, filling and low GI
- Scrambled eggs tomato and ham burrito
- Berry and bircher muesli cups - make a big batch at one time and if you’re running late just put them in a disposable cup and the kids can eat them in the car
- Whole grain toast with peanut butter topped with honey and banana slices


Kids in the kitchen

Some kids can be fussy eaters! One of the best things you can do is involve them in the preparation at meal times. We have found once the children have been engaged in the food that is being cooked they are more likely to eat that dinner and understand how to use ingredients and enjoy the experience.

Try fun things first like pizza, cupcakes, muffins and healthy biscuits. Kids like to measure and mix ingredients together. Involving your children at an early age will instil a love and appreciation of cooking that will last a lifetime.
