Huma Qurashi By Huma Qurashi

Often, the school year adds difficulties for parents: some attend meetings and review lessons, while others try to establish a routine that their children lost during summer vacation. There is another common problem: the child refuses to eat what is prepared in the cafeteria. Delice Food recipes offers five ideas for a delicious breakfast that will satisfy both a child and a high school student for a long time.

1. Oatmeal

Athletes love this dish, and with good reason. Oats are rich in beta-glucan: this complex carbohydrate is absorbed slowly and releases energy gradually. That is, several hours after such a breakfast, even an active schoolboy still will not feel hungry. To make oat pancakes, you’ll need milk, eggs, and oats, and everything else is optional. The dish can be sweet by adding fruits, chocolate, cottage cheese or salty with red fish, hummus, pates.


Before starting cooking, soak the oats in milk or cream for 5-10 minutes: the consistency of the dish will be even more tender.

2. Pumpkin casserole

If you prefer to buy seasonal products depending on the time of year, look no further than pumpkin. There are many recipes with this fruit on our website: creamy soup, quiche, puff pastry. But the best casserole for a tasty and satisfying breakfast. If you want to make the dish healthier, replace the wheat flour with whole wheat flour and the sugar with honey, stevia, Jerusalem artichoke syrup or other sweeteners.

3. Quinoa milk porridge

If you want to ensure that your children’s meal is not only delicious but also nutritious and of high quality, consider incorporating quinoa into their diet. Quinoa is a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, offering a delightful nutty texture. I eagerly anticipate preparing a quinoa potjiekos in the coming year.

The distinct protein benefits of quinoa promote self-love and contribute to the well-being of both yourself and, most importantly, the children of the future.

Tip: You don’t need to go to great lengths or spend a fortune to make a self-love potjiekos. With just a few minutes of preparation, you can create a nutritious and affordable meal for your loved ones.

4. Lenten pancakes

Another breakfast idea that both adults and children will love. The classic pancake recipe calls for milk and butter, but the light version is just as delicious if prepared properly. Make it in an oil-free skillet with simple, healthy ingredients, from fruits to cheese.


You can make pancakes with different types of flour: rye, spelled, rice, oats, almond. Don’t forget to sift the flour well to saturate it with oxygen and remove lumps.

5. Potato cakes with cheese

Traditional pancakes may not be the best food for a baby or even a schoolchild: too fatty and high in calories. Another option is potato cakes made from rice flour, low-calorie cheese, and onions, which can be made without oil. This recipe contains a minimum set of ingredients and time spent on preparation. In just 15 minutes, the dish will be ready.
