Protein Breakie Ideas
Fill 3 old jars with 2 spoon oats, 2 spoon fuit, 2 spoon yoghurt. Leave in fridge overnight. In the morning you can just top it with some extra fruit if you like. As we prefer homemade yoghurt rather than store bought, we always use our Homemade Yoghurt for Healthy Kids Snacks.
Because it is high in calcium, eating yogurt regularly is good for your bones. Yogurt may also benefit your digestive system, help immunity and offer protection from certain infections. It is made by bacterial fermentation of milk, a process that may boost digestive health because it produces the same good bacteria found in the gut. Plus, it contains additional good bacteria known as probiotics.

Fill 3 jars with 2 spoon Chia, 2 spoon coconut cream, 2 spoon fruit puree or leftover smoothie. You can also try our Lemon Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding.
Small but mighty, chia seeds have a variety of benefits and are considered by many to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Just two tablespoons (about an ounce) contains 10 times the Omega-3s of an equal serving of walnuts, more iron than a cup of spinach and a host of other nutrients in smaller amounts. They are also a great source of beneficial fats, fiber and about as many antioxidants per serving as blueberries.

It helps reduce constipation and diverticulosis. Fiber-containing foods such as vegetables help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.
