Simple Breakfast Parfaits for Kids

We love making breakfast with the kids. It is one of our favorite parts of the day because of the independence involved in making breakfast and the time around the kitchen table talking about our day ahead of us. Recently we went on a family trip where over 15 children from toddler to teenager were all together in one small beach condo. Breakfast needed to be simple, but we still wanted the family to sit together and get ready for the day. Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola from our wonderful sponsors made these simple breakfast parfaits fun and individualized so every child was happy {which is no small feat with 15 children}.

Simple Breakfast Parfaits for Kids

Whether you are feeding 1 child or 15, breakfast is an important part of the day. It sets the day on its tracks and gets everything running smoothly. One of our favorite breakfast ideas for kids is a parfait buffet where kids can make their very own meals and be in charge of what gets put in.

Making Yogurt Parfaits with Kids

Starting with the yogurt, add about 1/4 cup to the cup and layer in the first layer of fruit. Next add in your favorite Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola. Continue this process until the cup is full.

Top your parfait with more granola and the finishing touches of fruit. If your kids are like mine, they might want to make a face on the top or make designs.

The best part of this recipe is that it is kid proof! Each child can choose exactly what they like and add it to their parfait for the perfect start to their day! Plus its really fun to make with everyone together.

Our cousin told me at the end of breakfast “this is the best kind of breakfast… everyone gets exactly what they want AND it’s good for you!” Can’t beat that!
