Valentine’s Day Breakfast for Kids

Valentine’s Day is so much fun as a kid! You get to spend part of the school day swapping cards and treats with your friends instead of doing extra math. You can decorate Valentine boxes, cut out pink and purple hearts, and dress up in everything pink!  Well, maybe the boys don’t like dressing up in pink as much as I did/do.

Strawberry Waffles with No Dyes

Most of the strawberry waffles you’ll find on pinterest are bright red or pink because they have a lot of dyes in them!  But you don’t need that!  Just use fresh or frozen berries pureed in a blender and then serve your waffles with fresh berries to bring out that red color! Plus, if you serve them with a dollop of whipped cream they won’t be around long enough for anyone to even tell they aren’t bright red!  

Strawberry Waffles the kids will LOVE! Healthy Strawberry Waffles

Just a little whipped cream goes a long way and wow! This was so delicious! I ate every bite with a slice of berry, a little waffle and some cream!  I could barely wait to finish taking photos so that I could finally eat a plate.  Also, mom’s dream come true: These taste incredible even when they’re cooled! So no worrying about keeping them warm in the oven!

Every waffle iron is different because of the maker, the size of the waffle, the design… lots of reasons.  So get to know your waffle iron! Because of the strawberries in the recipe, these waffles don’t turn out crisp but if you cook them too long they’ll get too brown! These waffles are light and fluffy and perfect for any meal… even dinner!

Breakfast for dinner is a favorite of mine, and these Fruit & Veggie Pancakes look like tomorrow’s dinner for me!
