Insects for breakfast

As a mom, I’ve raised a few fussy eaters in my time, and Hamish was no different.

He prefers a fruit breakfast to a porriage or cereal, and I’ve always tried to present the fruit in the most appealing manner. Mostly because I believe that a plate that is visually pretty is more appealing and also, as most kids are overwealmed at large plates of food, it makes sense to rather present a small more child friendly portion.

One of my favourites to make, and Hamish’s to eat, are our insects for breakfast.

Heres how you can make your kiddies insects for breakfast.

You will need :
Heart cookie cutter

Cut 2 hearts out of watermelon slices for the wings and a thin slice of apple for the body.

All that’s left to do now, is eat and enjoy.
