Apple Sundae for Breakfast. 5 reasons your family should be having apples for breakfast!

Delicious, fruity, whole food goodness, coming to a breakfast table near you! Almost like an “apple slaw,” this mixture can be eaten as or or used to to top yogurt, pancakes, or even toast.

So, why should you make this healthy apple sundae for breakfast?

  1. Apples can help regulate blood sugar. Kids won’t get the blood sugar spike, followed by a drop like they would if you gave them Fruit Loops.
  2. Pecans are rich in healthy fats! Good fat in a child’s diet will help them stay full, longer, and support brain health.
  3. Raisins are a good source of iron!
  4. Honey may help children fight allergies, and it’s soothing to a cough.
  5. Yogurt is a great source of protein!

This looks so yummy! I wonder, have you been able to source non-sweetened dried cranberries? We have not been able to use them in recipes due to the amount of sugar added to them. Thanks again for documenting your menus and ideas!

We have non sweetened ones at our local health food store in the bulk bins. I haven’t seen them packaged, but if you have a store with a bulk foods section, you may find them there. Is that what you meant by “source” them?

Yes, it sure was. I haven’t found any in our Healthy Foods / Co-ops in Northern MD. Glad to hear they are available somewhere. Hopefully they will make it out here soon (or to Amazon.com)! I will keep looking.

Please explain about the vedioing of the race. I noticed 2 different cameras focused on Michelle. Why was that? Did her parents hire someone to video tape their daughter for prosperity? None of the other runners were video taped. How did the taping come to be edited and plubished to the web? I am just curious of the process.Sincerely,Mike
