VikingDad Pro-Tip #41(Kid’s Breakfast)

So, when you’re a stay-at-home Viking looking after the little ones, a healthy breakfast is important.  Knowing how chaotic things can get in the morning, it might not be a bad idea (like the one the shield-maiden gave me) to prep breakfast for the kids the night before.

I know what you’re thinking… sure… sounds great on paper but how is it in practice.  While it may seem like a herculean task when you’re trudging off to bed, but trust me, your early morning bleary-eyed self will thank you for it.

Vanilla Yogurt, Homemade Granola, Fresh Blackberries, Fresh Raspberries, Fresh Pineapple
Vanilla Yogurt, Homemade Granola, Fresh Blackberries, Fresh Raspberries, Fresh Pineapple and a cup of apple juice.

For instance, this breakfast above can be prepped in only a few minutes and put in the fridge for the next morning.  A couple of spoons of vanilla yogurt then a couple of spoons of granola then more yogurt, then more granola and then topped with some fresh berries.  Just cover with some plastic wrap and put in the fridge.

When morning comes, yank it out of the fridge, pour them a glass of apple juice and Viola, a healthy breakfast that they can eat while you’re still waking up!
