Win the Slum­ber Party

Parents (USA) - - Kids - Breakfast -

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.

Of­fer sauces.

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!
