Breakfast and Snack Ideas
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:29:31 AM »
Looking for suggestions for easy breakfasts and snack ideas for my before and after school that I am offering. Breakfast will obviously have to cater to older kids who probably are a bit picky and need to be quick before school starts but obviously a bit more than cold cereal.

Breakfast ideas:
Oatmeal, milk, brown sugar, fruit
Yogurt, granola, fruit
French toast/pancakes, milk, fruit
Toast with choice of topping, yogurt, fruit
Cereal, milk, fruit

Snack ideas:
In Saskatchewan, snack must consist of a fruit or vegetable and one other food group.
My fruit or vegetable (usually fruit) varies based on whatever is on sale
Second food group as Milk:  easy is glass of milk or yogurt, cheese, cheese string if you wanna get fancy
Second food group as Bread:  banana bread, crackers, bagels, muffins, cookies, rice cakes

Other snack ideas:
Veggies and dip (dip counts as milk group)
Smoothies/milkshakes
Trail mix
Nachos with cheese and salsa (serve with snap peas)

banana bread made with pureed cauliflower in place of butter works great
