Fun Teddy Valentine

Valentine Teddy

Carrying on in the spirit of Valentines I made a cute, fun food breakfast …

Healthy breakfasts for kids

Recipe

– Wheatbrick soaked to soften

– I used oat bran, sliced almonds and raisins for detail (and for the writing)

– ½ Strawberry for the rose

– Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for the stem and leaves

Method

1. I used a teddy bear mold and filled with softened wheatbrick – but then of course was dissatisfied so modified it!

2. Once the mold was full I pulled it away carefully.

3. Then thought I could improve on the shape so tried.

4. I used sliced almonds to give him ears, hands and feet.

5. Then thought he should be tubbier so gave him a rounder tummy.

And covered his face with oat bran so his features would show up.

6. I used raisins to give him eyes, nose and mouth.

7. Then he needed a rose which I made from half a strawberry (sliced at the end to “feather”) with a pepita stalk and leaves.

8. Gave him a pepita ground to stand on.

9. And then gave him some raisin love ….
