OK so who doesn’t want their name in … food!! The mini chefs were delighted to have their names carved out for breakfast and devoured them with pride.
This is such a simple, fun way to present some healthy food for breks. I used some letter molds and filled them with wheatbricks I had soaked in milk and that was about it. It’s something that you can do with the kids or they can probably do themselves.
Admittedly Max and Joe are short names (my friend quipped that I had 3 males in my life all with 3 letter names so I could remember them – hmpfff!!) and probably more manageable than Angelina or Benjamin but initials, sports team’s acronyms or nicknames can work.
– I used 1 ½ wheatbricks per boy and soaked in milk until soft but not mushy
– I used raisins, sliced almonds, sunflower seeds and pepitas for decoration
1. Choose your molds and fill with as much mix as you’d like.
2. Then press out the wheatbrick mix.
I realised whilst doing that that the gap in the “O” (and the “A” too) shouldn’t be filled!
3. And the other/s if you have need.
4. Then I decorated.
Using raisins and sliced almonds.
5. And for Joe.
I used raisins and pepitas.
6. Then finished off with some sunflower seeds as well.
7. Once we were ready to eat we poured the milk or you could use yoghurt.
8. Beautifully simple, fun and delicious.
Healthy, creative, fun food for kids big and small.
