What breakfast is easy to make, nutritious and loved by kids? Every mother would love to know the answer. Often, kids do not like traditional breakfasts. They want something modern and easy to eat. Easy-to-eat food is sometimes called finger food. Of course, kids love finger food.
The challenge is to give them modern, yet nutritious food that they will actually love to eat. Some children are anxious before they go to school in the morning. They might refuse to eat altogether. Therefore, it is very important that breakfast is so attractive in taste and in looks that they just cannot say ‘no’ to it.
Here are a few breakfast ideas that will make mothers’, especially working mothers’, life easier. These recipes are handpicked, on the criteria that they are 1) nutritious, 2) modern, 3) easy to eat, 4) easy to cook, and 5) look attractive.
1. Burrito breakfast – sushi model
3 eggs (whipped slightly in a bowl)
3 tablespoon chopped bell peppers
1 tsp. olive oil, or spray pan with non stick cooking spray

In a small saucepan, combine lemon juice and 1 Tbsp of the sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and syrupy. Se this aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, remaining Tbsp sugar and a pinch of salt.
Take a second bowl and whisk together the cottage cheese, milk and egg whites. You can now add the cottage cheese mixture to the flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated. Your pan cake mixture is now ready. Remember to make pancakes using a non-stick pan in low-medium heat.
