Dessert for Breakfast? Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Kids
I am always on the lookout for delicious and healthy breakfast ideas for our kids and ourselves to enjoy. Sometimes it is easier to reach for the box of cereal or put a piece of toast in the toaster. And we certainly do this often! But other days, we are craving something new, something exciting, and I am still eager to keep it pretty healthy!
Then I came upon this recipe for dessert for breakfast!
Read that again. Yep, dessert for breakfast. Yummo!
How much would you love to enjoy a delicious treat that is super healthy?
AND yummy! That you AND your kids will devour, and you’ll know that they filled up their bellies with nutrition, with vitamins and minerals, fiber, healthy fat, and protein. You can’t go wrong, right?
I am so excited to share our super yummy breakfast sundae recipe filled with healthy and delicious ingredients.
TIP: This recipe is also fabulous as a snack.
Why is it so healthy, do you ask?
I am happy to break it down!
Quinoa: Research shows that whole grains like quinoa can lower cholesterol and decrease blood pressure. It can also reduce the risk of heart disease.
Berries: Berries are filled with antioxidants that can protect against inflammation and oxidative stress. They are filled with fiber, have a yummy sweetness/tartness, and are DELISH!
Walnuts: Walnuts have lots of omega-3 fatty acids and help lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels. They have healthy fiber and protein too! Research shows walnuts are associated with a lower risk of cholesterol also.
Dates: Fiber in Medjool dates can help control blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol too. And the sweetness is fantastic.
Yogurt: Did you know that yogurt is fermented? And fermented foods are associated with decreased cholesterol and blood pressure levels? Plus, what kids don’t love yogurt?
Pretty impressive, right?
Seriously, if your mouth isn’t watering…
Mine is, just by writing this!
I hope you and your kids love this new indulgence. They won’t even know how healthy it is!
