Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s not particularly helpful that it happens at the most hectic time! Trying to convince a fussy eater to finish what’s on their plate is the last thing you need when trying to get everyone ready for the day. Fortunately, this peanut butter bear toast is a tasty, fun treat that even the pickiest of eaters will gladly polish off! Breakfast peanut bears are packed with protein and are a nutritious, filling breakfast that will set them up for a day of learning and playing. 

You may find that chopping the bananas the night before (and storing them in the fridge in an airtight container) makes this breakfast even easier to serve. If the bananas are pre-chopped then the kids can assemble their own peanut bear faces without adult help, which is a great way to introduce them to independently preparing their own breakfast. 

We wish all our toucanoos the best of luck when starting the new school year. We hope they learn amazing things, have lots of fun, and enjoy gobbling up their peanut butter bears!
