Family Breakfast #4: Chia Parfaits and Kitchen Art

Posted on: June 30th, 2020 by Bri DeRosa

This is the fourth installment of our Family Breakfast series! Throughout the summer of 2020, we’re sharing new ideas every week for family breakfasts with food, fun and conversation to help you enjoy your family time each morning. Whether you’re still socially distancing or trying to get back into a more normal routine, these morning meals are an opportunity for a few minutes of togetherness before the day begins.

This week, American families might be celebrating the 4th of July, so we’re sharing an idea that can be used for a patriotically themed breakfast, snack or dessert. A quick and easy art project helps sleepyheads transition into the day slowly, while silly conversation starters do the job of putting a smile on everyone’s face.

This Week’s Family Breakfast: Food

Chia parfaits are naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and delicious. Make yours red, white and blue with summer berries or mix things up with your favorite fruits.

Paper towels and food coloring get transformed into colorful tie-dye-inspired artworks! Hang your creations to dry after breakfast, and you’ll have an art gallery ready to view all day long.
