Home visit: try a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed

On Sunday May 12th, why not get International Mother’s Day off to a good start with a relaxing breakfast in bed? Easy to prepare, these granola jars are perfect for enjoying alone or – better yet – together! Nina and her sons show us how.

Prep your ingredients with love

If the kids are old enough, they can make breakfast for Mom. Or, make it a team effort! Chopping and slicing wholesome ingredients like fresh fruits, berries and nuts will make even a simple yogurt and granola breakfast feel like a treat.

Make a present of your presentation

Instead of serving it in a bowl, try filling a jar so that it’s like a little gift to open. Layering with the yogurt first, then the granola, extra toppings and a drizzle of sweet honey looks beautiful and helps keep the dry toppings crunchy.

Take breakfast to bed

Make dishing up fuss-free and fun by setting everything on a tray table that can be carried straight from the kitchen to bed. Add playful details and a few flowers or plant cuttings to bring a smile to Mom’s face.

Tuck in together

Why not take a break from the usual morning routine and spend a little longer over breakfast together? Today’s a great day to celebrate family and make the most of those special moments.
