As you plan your KES Club Breakfast menu for the remaining months of your school year, why not try adding a yogurt parfait bar at your KES Club – we know the kids will love it! Set up a side table where kids can make their own parfaits. Let them choose from yogurt, different fruits, (they can be fresh or frozen) and granola or cereal to top it off. This fun breakfast is sure to be a hit with the kids.
- Yogurt (plain, vanilla or strawberry)
- Fruits and berries (bananas, frozen berries, frozen mixed fruits, chopped melons, etc)
- Toppings (granola (ensure nut free if allergies), cereal such as Cheerios, Raisin Bran and Chex)
Set a table with cups or bowls and spoons that the children can take and start adding their ingredients (If you think things will get messy, you can have your bowls or cups already filled with the yogurt). Place your ingredients on the table with a spoon in each and allow the children to form an assembly line and serve themselves. Have a volunteer near to keep the line moving.
