Edible jewellery for breakfast

I have lost count of how often my children have refused to eat their breakfast. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day so I find it difficult to understand why you wouldn't want to eat it. We have tried toast, oats, muesli, rice bubbles, pancakes and eggs. Occasionally we have some luck with oats and toast but certainly not on a consistent basis.

This morning however breakfast was a big hit. We made necklaces using string with Quinoa Os and a nutri-grain equivalent. We used a few dried apples too. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Alex and Jasmine eating spoons of cereal in between threading their necklaces.


  1. Yummy, although I don't think my 2 year old would thread a bracelet, he'd be in such a hurry to eat the Quinoa Os :)

  2. That's so cute! I have a twin! (Although we're both old and in college haha) It's so nice to meet you!

  3. What a good idea. I must remember this. I have 18 month old boy girl twins :-) And I think I am going to need all the tricks in the book for my two. Thanks for sharing.
