Ingredients

1 banana, cut in half crosswise and again lengthwise
1 cup Greek yogurt (plain or flavored)
1 cup whole-grain fortified cereal (check the Nutrition Facts label)
1 teaspoon honey (optional)
¼ cup sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen)
¼ cup canned pineapple pieces (fresh or canned in 100% juice and drained)

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Place 2 pieces of banana next to each other in each of the 2 cereal bowls.

Notes

  • Try any fruit, such as blueberries and sliced peaches.

  • Use any type of yogurt. Look at the Nutrition Facts label for nutrients of concern such as protein, calcium, saturated fat and added sugars . 

Comments

I suggested this recipe and the Overnight Oats for One for my 90-year old mother because getting enough protein at breakfast hasn't been easy for her to accomplish. She has found this to work as a light dinner, too.
