Guest post and recipe by Aimee Murphy from Sunday Tribe Co.
I don’t know about you but if I told my kids they could have dessert for breakfast they would literally be falling over each other to get to the dining table. Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be a battle to get your kids to eat healthy food.
One of my children’s favourite breakfast is loaded full of fibre and protein it’s also gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and is well just a great example of real food.
It is so good my kids ask for it on repeat. The best thing is it is super simple to prepare and you can make enough in advance to last the week.
So without further ado I present to you Choc Caramel Chia Pudding. This little guy will provide your kids with sustainable energy to get them through even the busiest days. The caramel alone will be a ridiculous success and you will feel great knowing you have served them up a delicious healthy breakfast. Go you!
