Go ahead and play with your food!
Breakfast is a great time for playful meals, and this little owl is a fun example. Made from fresh fruit and cereal, this food art project is a nutritious and delicious start to the day!
Step 1. Gather your ingredients
You will need:
1 orange (large or small)
1 pineapple slice with core
One handful of your favourite cereal (I like Love Grown Power Os because they are made from beans and full of fiber and protein)
Note: If you don’t have all the ingredients listed above find substitutions! Ex. Pineapple for melons
Step 2. Get started
Slice pineapple into one ½ inch ring (with core)
Create a heart design on the pineapple with the cereal
For the eyes, place 2 banana slices on the cereal and two blueberries on the banana slices
Slice orange into:
2 medium wedges for the ears
1 small wedge for the nose
2 small square shapes for the feet
Step 3. Do it together
Our children love spending time with us and it’s important that we eat too. So find a few minutes to sit down and get creative with them. It’s a wonderful way to start the day!
Step 4. Get creative
There are no rules. So get creative and have fun!
