Happy 4th of July! Red, white and blue breakfast {Kid-friendly recipes}

Red-white-blue-breakfast-4th-of-JulyPin it.

If I feed my children sugar for breakfast I’m pretty much asking for a loooooong day. So I try to stick to plain cereals, toast, yogurt – you know, the really exciting stuff. Today I surprised them with a red, white and blue breakfast that even snaps, crackles and pops like fireworks!

What you need:

Rice Krispies cereal



Strawberries, sliced

What you do:

1.) Make your cereal how you like it.

2.) Top with blueberries and strawberries

3.) Enjoy!

Other twists on this idea: You can add red, white and blue sprinkles to the cereal (thanks, Maygan!), you could add coconut or white chocolate chips, or raspberries! You could also use a small star cutter like this used for Bento boxes (Stainless Steel Vegetable Cutters) to cut larger strawberries into stars – I think that would be so cute!


We also had a side of Chobani strawberry yogurt with berries. Although he looks a little like a snowman. 🙂

What are your favorite 4th of July recipes? Do you have any favorite red, white and blue meals?
