Peanut butter banana smash. 1 tb of 100% peanut butter on 2 slices of whole grain toast, topped with 1 banana, sliced. Or try 1 slice as a nourishing and satisfying snack.
Smoothies Easy, yet slightly fancy breakfast idea for the family; cocoa berry smoothies. No super foods or special ingredients, add 250mls milk (of choice), 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1/2 banana, 1.5 Weetbix, 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt. Blend the ingredients well and dust with cocoa for the kids. Use up any leftovers to make smoothie icy-poles for an after school snack.
Overnight oats In the spirit of Spring, try colourful, flavoured overnight oats. The bonus is you can whip up a few batches whilst you’re making your morning porridge. I try to halve cooking time by making double batches of meals where I can. The children can help or request their own special variations.
Per serve: 1/3 cup rolled oats 1/3 cup milk 2 tb yoghurt 1/2 banana (to add fresh tomorrow) Additions: nut butter, honey, cinnamon, seeds, flaked nuts. Combine in a jar for easy transport, refrigerate.
