Guest Recipe: Cooking for Kids [Part 1 - Breakfast]


Alana Jane is, quite simply, an amazing woman. She is most passionate about making a difference to how parents nourish their children.


Her two children are 4 and nearly 7-years-old, so most of her recipes are family friendly (she makes one balanced meal for everyone with the options of "take it or leave it" at the dinner table for her kidlets)...Oh, did I mention she's a co-director of a plumbing company, still hairdresses in her spare time and looks positively banging and years younger than her biological age?!

In Part One of Cooking for Kids, we tackle breakfast. This recipe is from Alana's blog, and you can find her on Facebook, too!
