Kid-friendly banana boat breakfast
Not so many kids will cheerfully have a banana for breakfast if you were to serve it to them on its own.
Most kids (including mine when they were much younger), aren’t really fond of plain fruit. The story swiftly changes if you were to serve the same fruit by presenting it in a much more appetizing way. They simply would gobble it all up within minutes.
This bonus recipe is for you if you’ve ever had a hard time getting your child to eat fruits unless you bribed them. This yummy banana split breakfast will bring joy to your morning rush hour.
How to make the banana boat breakfast for kids
The trick here is to mix it up with the stuff they love. You can use their favorite yogurt flavor (you can freeze the yogurt if you want to serve this as a snack on a hot summer afternoon).
If your child isn’t old enough to eat honey, you can drizzle a bit of maple syrup on the banana boat, my kids used to love doing this.
You can also replace blueberries with raspberries or any of their favorite berries.
If you want to go full out, you can top this banana boat breakfast with chocolate chips, and use healthy granola, instead of rolled oats.
