Powered-Up Cereal Bowl

Powered-Up Cereal Bowl
1 serving

This isn’t exactly a recipe. It’s more of a suggestion for how to give your child’s favorite cereal more nutritional clout. Most packaged cereal just isn’t going to keep kids going for very long—unless you get creative, that is. Think outside of the cereal box.



Your child’s favorite cereal
Milk or non-dairy milk
Assorted toppings, see directions


Step 1

Take one portion of your child’s favorite cereal, the lower in sugar and the cleaner the ingredient list, the better.

Step 2

Top with 1–2 tablespoons total of one or more of the following: raisins or dried cranberries or blueberries; dried goji berries; chopped dried dates, figs, mango, apples, or other chopped dried fruit; hemp hearts; chia seeds; flaxseeds; seeds such as sunflower, pumpkin, or sesame; chopped nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, or Brazil nuts; unsweetened shredded coconut; wheat germ; chopped cocoa nibs; fresh berries or fresh diced fruit; yogurt; nut or seed butters (try just putting a dollop on the cereal just off to the side and your child can scoop up little bits of it at a time to add to mouthfuls of cereal); coconut oil; flax oil.

Step 3

Add milk or non-dairy milk. Voilà: powered-up cereal.
