• Description:

    Warm, comforting and cost-effective, you can’t go wrong with a good French toast recipe - and young ones will tend to agree. Although this breakfast treat is traditionally served with honey or syrup, you can make the meal even more nutritious by serving it with seasonal fruit instead. Serving size for a toddler: 4 bread strips.

  • Ingredients:

    5 slices of bread (cut each one lengthways into 4 equal strips)
    2 eggs

    ½ cup milk
    ½ tsp. cinnamon
    1 tbsp. butter

    2 tsp. honey

  • Method:

    1. In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon and honey until combined.
    2. Dip each soldier in the mixture until evenly coated.
    3. Heat a pan (medium heat) with a bit of butter (or non-stick cooking spray).
    4. Cook for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
