Lately, I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting my kids to eat a healthy breakfast. They are tired of our usual breakfast staples, and it’s too hot to want a steaming bowl of oatmeal during these summer months.
So I came up with an easy breakfast idea that is a little out of the box and super fun for my kids to eat: Yogurt Cereal Bark.
This recipe is so simple to make that you really can’t even call it a recipe. But what’s fun is that because it is so easy, your kids can make it for themselves…something I find makes them more likely to actually eat whatever it is 😉
With the good protein from the yogurt and the vitamin-fortified cereal, your kids are going to get some good nutrition to help them have the energy to enjoy their busy summer.
All you need to make this yogurt cereal bark is yogurt and cereal, in whatever flavors you like.
I used vanilla yogurt and Froot Loops here, but you can use whatever flavor yogurt or variety of cereal your kids like. (Strawberry yogurt is really good too!)
You’ll want to pour the yogurt into a sheet pan, which is lined with wax or parchment paper.
Spread the yogurt into an even layer so that it covers the pan.
Next, just sprinkle the cereal pieces evenly over the yogurt. Pop the sheet pan into the freezer for about 2 hours, or until the yogurt is completely frozen.
Break the bark into pieces and let your kids enjoy while watching their morning cartoons.
