Serving the same menu, cereals, fruits and other breakfast items, can get boring. This is even more true for our “grab and go” Breakfast Clubs. Volunteers are often challenged on finding new items to serve due to limited space and preparation area. While still serving the same items, you can “mix” them up by making a delicious trail mix treat for your students. Children always enjoy this in our KES Breakfast Clubs! You may also want to try this at home.
- 1/2 cup granola
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup banana chips
- 1/2 cup cereal (cheerios, chex, mini wheats, etc)
- Shredded unsweetened coconut (to taste)
- Misc additions (yogurt chips, sunflower seeds, other dried fruits, etc)
- Large Bowl
- To-go baggies or cups
In a large bowl mix all ingredients together with a spoon or use your hands. Portion into to-go baggies or cups. Serve and let the students enjoy!
*Adjust ingredient amounts based on number of students you serve.
