There’s nothing better than to give your little ones a hearty, energy-packed breakfast! 

Here’s a sample breakfast I fix for my grandchildren (it’s my granddaughter’s favorite).


1/4 Dora cup Unsweetened Apple Juice

1 Dora yogurt

1 bowl mandarin oranges

1 bowl Captain Crunch (sorry about this one, whole grain next time)  😉

1 toast (make it whole grain)

1 teaspoon cashews

equals=2 full, satisfied, cheerful little cherubs.


Help your young one understand the human digestive system:

Partially roll out brown craft paper on the floor. Have your child lie face up on the sheet. Take a fat, black marker, and outline his/her body on the sheet. Cut out your child’s shape. Now you can use this paper “Child’s Body” to draw the parts of the digestive system. Give crayons, markers, color pencils, etc to color the mouth, stomach, etc. Hang it on a wall in their room, or better yet, in the kitchen!
