Grape-nuts Smile

This is a simple, nutritious snack or breakfast that my four-year-old has been enjoying since he was two:

Put some Grape-nuts cereal and milk in a bowl.
Use healthy toppings to draw a face on the top surface.
Eat!

This started when I fixed him a bowl of Grape-nuts with sorghum syrup (huh?) and on impulse dribbled the syrup in a smiley face. He loved it and soon began requesting Grape-nuts with various elaborate facial features. Here are some other toppings we’ve tried:
peanut butter
honey
raisins
yogurt
blueberries
bite-sized slices of apple
pineapple chunks
banana slices

Being artistic takes only about one minute extra and makes the food more appealing! It works for me!
