Having a Family Valentine’s Breakfast Makes Kids Feel Special Too
It doesn’t take much effort to serve up a really special Valentine’s Day breakfast to the family, and the kids will really enjoy any of the ideas below.
Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut hearts out of your morning toast, and spread thickly with strawberry jam.
Make a heart-shaped fried egg, placing a metal cookie cutter into your greased frying pan and breaking the egg into it.
Cut a heart shape from the centre of a slice of bread using a cookie cutter. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan, then place the bread into the pan. Break an egg carefully into the hole and fry them both together, turning carefully when the egg is nearly set.
Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes out of your breakfast pancakes. Serve with a knob of butter, a drizzle of maple syrup, and some red berries.
Serving up hot chocolate or a frothy coffee? Fill almost to the brim of the cup, then carefully lay a paper stencil with a heart-shape cut from the centre over. Sprinkle gently with cocoa powder or icing sugar. Serve immediately.
You can put almost anything on your kids’ plates in a heart shape – even baked beans!
Serve up a pink breakfast smoothie.
Cook up a delicious bowl of oatmeal and swirl a red heart in the centre with strawberry jam to serve. Try our special occasion oatmeal or our vanilla oatmeal with a cherry twist.
Spoon some natural yoghurt into a bowl and drizzle a honey heart over it. Now fill the centre of the heart with granola and outline the yoghurt with berries. Pretty and delicious!
Get the kiddos involved, and let them be a part of the cooking or preparation process. It’s always a special time, and you may be surprised at what they are capable of doing on a regular basis!
Most of all the ingredients, use a lot of hugs and kisses and let the laughter flow most of all!
