My son had been giving me trouble this summer with not eating anything that I made. Especially annoying was his breakfast habits. He’d give me leftovers all the time and he would eat Nutella and bread or a Peanut butter sandwich 3 times a day, everyday of the week. I told him to go make his own breakfast and have anything other than Nutella and peanut butter sandwiches. This is what he came up with.

What you need
The cereals first. Chop the banana and throw it in. Mix with a little milk… a dollop of ice cream. Ta Da.
The beauty of kids making their meals… they eat it. This tasted delicious! It is Mommy Approved now!
He says, he’ll have it everyday for his breakfast when school starts!
I say, ‘My pleasure’!
