Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day; it’s my personal favourite meal of the day. I never miss breakfast, and it’s important to me that my children eat breakfast too. They are not very interested in cereal, so I’m left with the task of finding breakfast meals that they like.

I feel that they need some carbs for energy, but also protein to keep them feeling alert and full throughout the morning. Of course they need to like it as well, or they won’t eat it! Adding Nutella to our breakfast recipes is a great way to add fun and boost the flavour, like I did with these Banana Waffles.

  6. Remove from waffle iron and plate.
  7. Spread Nutella over the whole waffle.
