Easy 4th of July breakfast the kids can make themselves - see post for yogurt sauce recipe

4th of July Breakfast Treat

As evidence by The Summer of Yes! last week, I’ve been doing some reflecting on my parenting style lately.

One of the things I’ve realized is that, yes, I do enjoy planning holiday surprises for my kiddos.  But also, no, I don’t enjoy it when said surprise takes an inordinate amount of time and effort to achieve.

Simple = fun, complicated and showy = a stressed out mama and less than overjoyed kids.

So in that spirit, I’ve put together a super simple 4th of July breakfast idea over on the Van’s Natural Foods Blog. Hop on over for instructions and a recipe for healthy greek yogurt sauce.

And if you’re in the market for an easy 4th of July Potluck dish for next week, be sure to also check out our Strawberry Cream Cheese Flag Cookie Cups.
