National Breakfast WeekToday is the first day of National Breakfast Week! Not only is breakfast my favorite meal of the day, but as all moms know – it is the most important meal of the day for both adults and kids. To celebrate, I’m going to be featuring a new breakfast recipe every day. Hopefully, these breakfast ideas will help you give your family a great start! All of the recipes are simple and quick – perfect for busy weekday mornings. Up first is one of my favorite things to eat in the whole world. Breakfast parfaits.

I like to make these with layers of creamy vanilla yogurt, fresh fruit, and my favorite Kellogg’s cereal for crunch.

Did you know? A serving of Kellogg cereals and 1 cup of skim milk can provide protein and four nutrients most people don’t get enough of: fiber, calcium, Vitamin D and potassium.

To keep it quick in the morning, I put these together the night before by layering all of the components into small 8 ounce jelly or mason jars. In the morning, just grab your parfait and go! Kids love these. Adults love these. They are perfect for breakfast, a midday snack, healthy dessert, and I even pack these into Lucas’ lunchbox for school. So good!
