Easy Mother’s Day breakfasts the kids can make

Let's help mum have a sleep in on Sunday! Here are some simple breakfast recipes older kids can make with a little supervision, and younger children can make in partnership with another adult.

Sunday is breakfast in bed day!

And kids, always ask your parents’ permission before cooking anything. And ask for help if a recipe requires the use of knives, the stove or oven, or other kitchen appliances.

And don’t forget the tidy up!
