I have a confession to make, while I have been doing my best to feed my kids wholesome meals, I was still letting them eat all the sugary junk cereals because mornings are just too hectic to cook them a great meal. They never wanted any of the better cereal options and since they eat well for every other meal, I let to slide. I decided, after avoiding it for so long, to try out some Annie’s products with the kids. Especially since they now have a cereal that is perfect for them, Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies! Only I decided to take it even further than just a simple bowl of cereal and milk. I also picked up Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, all conveniently at Sam’s Club during our monthly trip.
Since my family loves Neapolitan ice cream, I wanted to do a play on that to really get them excited, and it worked wonders. Gavin especially, couldn’t wait to eat a Neapolitan Breakfast Parfait for breakfast. And it is really quick and simple too! I picked up Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies, Annie’s Whole Milk Yogurt in both Very Vanilla and Summer Strawberry and some fresh strawberries.
Simply layer the ingredients in a glass, the combo that seems to work best is, Very Vanilla Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, then Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies, topped with Summer Strawberry Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, then add some fresh cut up strawberries, more Very Vanilla Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt and a few Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies frolicking on top. I finished it off with a whole strawberry on the rim of the glass, the kids felt very fancy with it there.
This is the start of more wholesome breakfast options that are also yummy for the kids and it has gotten the wheels in my head turning too. I am thinking of a chocolate covered strawberry inspired parfait using the Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies and Summer Strawberry Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt and a cookies and cream inspired using Annie’s Cookie Bites and Very Vanilla Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt.
