This cheerful breakfast is quick, fun to make and only requires a few ingredients. Children will need very little assistance when they build up the pretty layers; they can keep things interesting by changing the fruit or the cereal. This filling breakfast will keep little tummies full, right up to snack time and beyond!


  • 50g Cheerios
  • 225g plain natural yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp honey (optional)
  • 75g blueberries
  • 50g strawberries


  • Find two large glass tumblers. If your child is very young, you may prefer to use a plastic cup!

  • Weigh the Cheerios, yogurt and fruit into separate bowls. If you wish to sweeten the yogurt, stir in the honey.

  • Ask your child to fill the glasses with the ingredients, in alternate layers. Start with a layer of Cheerios, then a layer of yogurt, followed by some fruit. Repeat this sequence twice, finishing with an extra sprinkle of Cheerios as a finishing touch.

  • Serve straight away!
