Some mornings when I walk downstairs bleary eyed (wait, that’s every morning), I wish there was something already made in the refrigerator that I could just pull out. I came up with this recipe for just that reason.

Blueberry Mango BreakfastPin

After staying out late while the grandparents were in town, I knew that making things easy on myself in the morning would be important. Fruit, dairy, protein and wheat germ are the perfect start to Kenya’s morning of play.

Wheat germ was one of those foods I thought only older people ate. I remember my Grandparents talking about adding it to their food and thinking it was only for “old” people. Turns out it’s delicious in everything from muffins to cereal. Wheat germ is the product left behind after the processing of refined flour. In actuality, it’s the best part containing all the nutrients that have been stripped from the final product. It’s packed with B-Vitamins, Vitamin E and Iron, and a rich antioxidant.

Truth be told, this also makes a great dessert for your wee one.

It’s good for menopausal women, but not so much for babies, apparently.

  2. […] best thing about this blueberry mango breakfast recipe is that it combines several ingredients that you don’t usually find in baby food. That […]
