Do you have a hard time getting your kids to eat breakfast? Did I just ask that question. Getting kids to eat any meal can be difficult at times. I've been in search of fun and kid friendly recipes that can help us make meals enjoyable for our little ones and will be starting a series of posts with fun meal ideas.
Oatmeal is big in my household, especially in the winter. It's hearty and warm on cold, rainy days and the kids love it. I came across this little guy and immediately tossed him into the kids recipe box. He's adorable and has earned a spot on the breakfast table in the Gales household minus the squiggly lines.
It's simple and the ingredients are healthy. I think my 5 year old would enjoy decorating his bowl of oatmeal. You will need the following ingredients:
Oatmeal ( I use Maple Quaker Oats)
Sliced strawberries (eyes, nose, ears, mouth)
Raisins (eyes, hair)
