#### This simple and nutritious breakfast is another popular before school breakfast from 4 Ingredients. Children just love the layers and it's an easy way to get them to eat fruit for the first important meal of the day. Just about any fruit can be used for this so Love Your Leftovers and use up whatever you have in the fridge - berries, mango, tinned peaches, sliced apple.

Serves 2
  • ¾ cup (185g) vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 8 strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • ½ cup (55g) granola, plus extra for topping

Layer the ingredients into a parfait glass or pretty box beginning with fruit, then yoghurt, and then cereal. Repeat two more times to finish with a layer of cereal on top. Garnish with a strawberry or berry of your choice.

Plan breakfast for the week ahead, alternating between this recipe and the 4 Ingredients Banana Bix Shake (pictured next to the Breakfast Box).
