For someone who isn’t a natural in the kitchen, when I make breakfast in particular, I certainly have learned how to make it fun; for myself and my kids. If there is ever a way I can infuse what I’m serving up with a little extra love or with a shiny happy face, I’ll do it. Heart and faces are some of my favorite expressions to share with my kids whether it’s for breakfast, dessert or anything in between.
Our weekday morning routine is pretty solid in its structure and schedule, and although I don’t have tons of time for a fancy breakfast, that doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy, yummy and fun. As a matter of fact, the ingredients of our family favorites (shapes, sizes, colors & textures) make for the perfect creative tools for the most happy meals of the day.
Don’t get me wrong here; I’m not talking recipes. I’m merely talking about how I choose to plate our breakfast foods in a way that greets my girls with a happy face. I don’t point out these faces. I just wait to see if they notice, which they almost always do. I figure starting with a smile is the best way to start.
Here are a few recent favorites from our morning meals.
