Back-to-school breakfasts that take less than 10 minutes to Prep

You want your family to wake up to a breakfast packed with whole grains and healthy nutrients, but you also want to get everyone out the door on time. Here’s a few smart ideas to shake up the ole cereal routine—and in a way that’s equal parts nutritious and quick.

Frozen Yogurt Bark

Like little ice cream bars, only much healthier, this creamy but bar-like breakfast also doubles as a protein-packed snack. Ten minutes before bedtime, whip up a tray for the morning—all it takes is 1 (32-ounce) container of Greek yogurt (any flavor), half cup of fresh berries, and 1 cup of whole grain cereal.

Line a sheet pan with a silicone mat or parchment paper and spread the yogurt into the pan.

Sprinkle on the fresh berries and cereal and then freeze the pan overnight. For breakfast, break it into large pieces and serve. Leftovers can be stored in a freezer bag or airtight container in the freezer.

Nutrition note: A batch of frozen yogurt bark serves about 12 and provides around 8 grams of protein per serving. 

Goldie’s Forest Berry Parfait

This 3-ingredient breakfast requires no planning ahead. Just mix ½ cup berries with a 5.3-ounce container of Greek yogurt and top with a package of belVita Bites (any flavor) or a package of crushed belVita biscuits.
