Win the Slumber Party
Move over, sundae bar! At your kid’s next party, set out cereals and toppings like fresh fruit, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, nuts, chopped granola bars, and mini candies. Then borrow these pro tips from Sandra Di Capua, partner at the Kellogg’s NYC café, in New York City, and Lori Hofer, co-owner of The Cereal Box Inc. café, in Arvada, Colorado. Start with low-sugar cereals in the mix. They’re a perfect blank canvas for indulging in toppings like whipped cream and sprinkles.
Encourage kids to have a vision. When building bowls, use inspiration from well-loved flavor combos like s’mores, PB & J, and birthday cake.
Suggest that three is the magic number.
We know most kids will go full tilt, but sticking to a max of three toppings lets the ingredients shine.
A drizzle of strawberry, chocolate, or caramel sauce on top flavors the milk so your kids will slurp down every last drop.
Don’t forgo fruit. Even when there’s candy around, many kids will choose fruit too. Sliced fresh strawberries are actually the most popular topping at the Kellogg’s NYC café.
Soak freeze-dried strawberries in milk to make it pink!
