Studies show that when kids participate in cooking, they are more likely to eat the food. This means you can stop fighting with this kids in the morning and start enjoying a calmer stress-free breakfast. What a great bonus!
Breakfast Pizza Recipe
- Whole grain English muffins
- Homemade fruit dip, or flavored yogurt of your choosing
- Red, white, and blue fruits (strawberries, rasberries, apples, bananas, blueberries)
If you are going to be using the homemade fruit dip as your sauce, start by mixing that up and placing it in the fridge to chill. If you are just going to use yogurt as your sauce, you can begin by toasting the English muffins.
While the muffins are cooking, chop up the larger pieces of fruit. It can be diced or sliced in any way you desire. The size of the slices will determine the different patterns you can make on your pizza.
Fruit is soft enough that it can be cut with a plastic knife, which is a great introduction to knife skills for kids.
When the English muffins are toasted to your liking, spread a generous helping of fruit dip or yogurt on top to serve as your pizza sauce. Then, decorate the pizza using the fruit you sliced earlier.
If you are working with young kids, this whole process will likely be a little messy, and I encourage you to embrace that. Making occasional messes is an important part of the learning process, and clean up offers yet another opportunity to practice crucial life skills.
