Plan some family fun this weekend and make breakfast with the kids--not just for them. Getting IN THE KITCHEN will help the kids pick up some great skills, and it often helps pickier eaters get excited about food too. The best part, of course, is that you'll get to spend some time together.
It doesn't have to be intimidating for you or them. Get the kids to help mix up the batter for Stefano's Oven Puffed Pancake, or crumble up the dried bananas for the crunchy topping on his Oatmeal. Or if you already know you have a junior baker on your hands, let them practice their kneading with this Giant Cinnamon Bun. It's a slow Sunday morning project to share in the anticipation of, not to mention, the enjoyment of devouring.
Whether you choose a big or simple breakfast, have some fun and make any of these breakfast recipes as a team.
