When I first get up, all I want to do is walk around like a zombie. Eating muesli is the last thing I want to do. However, to prepare myself for my child zombie waking up, I need some energy.
I find using a colourful bowl can also be an incentive for your child to eat the muesli, and for you too!
This muesli is a positive powerhouse and an anti-zombie nutrient blast. It keeps you satisfied until lunchtime and slowly releases energy. This means you don’t get that snack attack slump mid morning.
The calorie count may be higher than popular cereals. This stops you snacking a couple of hours later, so it balances out. Think of all the goodness from the nuts and seeds too. It feels like you’re having something filling that will perk you up.
Just make it a portion at a time. If you make a batch of it you don’t get an even distribution of all the ingredients in each portion.
Can’t be bothered making it first thing in the morning? Mix it in a lidded container, with the yoghurt and the milk. Leave it in the fridge overnight and just grab and go in the morning. What could be easier?
What Goes Well With This?
Adding strawberries and blueberries or kiwi fruit help to sweeten it. A whole kiwi fruit can contain more than 100% of your daily Vitamin C requirement! Berries will add pops of colour to maybe encourage your mini me to try it out.
Natural yoghurt and milk helps to make it creamier. If you want to get your kids interested in the yoghurt, add some strawberries or raspberries and mix them in and watch the yoghurt and milk turn pink. Pretty muesli. What a bonus!
