First rub a fresh garlic clove on a sliced whole meal baguette. Then rub half a tomato on the bread as before. Top with a good quality olive oil and a pinch of salt. The Mediterranean diet is one that has huge benefits. In Spain a very typical breakfast is fresh toasted bread with garlic, tomato and olive oil with cured ham. For simplicity we have left the cured ham out in our version of a “Catalana”. The trick here is to get a good table olive oil and not cooking olive oil.
See the step by step video above.
Nutty, Banana Toast
Spread peanut, hazelnut or almond butter on whole grain or whole meal toast. Top it with a sliced banana and drizzle with a little honey.
Granola & Berries
Chop a pear, banana or apple into small pieces. Add some blue berries and chopped strawberries. Mix them together with natural full fat yoghurt and cover with some crunchy granola.
Layer full fat yogurt with crispy rice cereal and blue berries. You could also drizzle with a little honey or use vanilla yogurt.
Combine one mango, one banana and an avocado to a blender with the juice of two oranges. Blend until smooth.
Egg & Toast
Poach or boil an egg. Serve on top of whole grain bread drizzled with olive oil or spread with butter. Add a pinch of salt and pepper (optional).
Pancakes can be re-heated if cooked the night before, or get your children to help make them. Add a topping of banana, berries or apple slices then drizzle with maple syrup or honey.
Stuffed Pita Bread
Whole wheat or whole grain pita with cottage cheese spread. Layer sliced peaches, pears or berries and drizzle with honey.
These are only a few healthy breakfast ideas for kids, there are loads more. Try and mix things up when it comes to breakfast and try to encourage your kids to eat more whole fruit, drink less juice and stay healthy. We hope you enjoy cooking together and remember it’s the moments you create not the food you make.
