Things have changed around here at breakfast, thanks to being involved in Princes’ Mums on the Run campaign.
Princes are encouraging us to stock up with their canned fruit range, helping us to serve up healthy and easy breakfasts for our families.
I have to say, when I first got involved in this, I had one of those, ‘why didn’t I think of this before?’ moments! I do like to ensure that the kids and I have plenty of fruit in our diets, but I hadn’t thought about using canned fruit to do it, or to add it to our breakfasts. Of course with buying the cans, they can live in the cupboard for whenever we need them with no chance of food waste, ensuring they’re always fresh whenever we want them. It has also meant that I can get several different types of fruit in, so the kids have plenty of choice and variety. It all counts as one of our five a day and as they are prepared in the cans, I don’t have to spend time peeling, chopping or pitting them, they are good to go.
Princes have several simple recipes over on their website, and we decided to give this one a go. The video shows the method and how simple it is to create…
Mango slices, two tablespoons of Greek yoghurt, more mango slices and then a sprinkling of mixed seeds and dessicated coconut on top. It took me less than five minutes to prepare this for us, from grabbing the bowls from the cupboard to serving it.
It was a hit with Little Man, though it’s not one for Boo. She is intolerant to coconut and isn’t keen on the seeds, but I made her a simple mango slices and yoghurt breakfast and that got a thumbs up! The kids also like to drink the fruit juice from the cans with their breakfast, and see that as an extra treat each day.
This has altered the way that we’re doing breafast here and both Boo and Little Man are enjoying coming up with new breakfast recipes and ideas. It’s become something of a fun project for them, and of course, as they’re interested in preparing the food, they are interesting in eating it!
Is this something you already do? If not, I do hope it’s inspired you to try something different as it has us. To help you get going with this, Princes are running a great competition with me…
