This cheerful breakfast is quick, fun to make and only requires a few ingredients.

  • 50g Cheerios
  • 225g plain natural yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp honey (optional)
  • 75g blueberries
  • 50g strawberries




  1. Find two large glass tumblers. If your child is very young, you may prefer to use a plastic cup!
  2. Weigh the Cheerios, yogurt and fruit into separate bowls. If you wish to sweeten the yogurt, stir in the honey.
  3. Ask your child to fill the glasses with the ingredients, in alternate layers. Start with a layer of Cheerios, then a layer of yogurt, followed by some fruit. Repeat this sequence twice, finishing with an extra sprinkle of Cheerios as a finishing touch.
  4. Serve straight away!
