NutellaDilla - Breakfast Made Easy for Busy Moms!

Quick and Easy Breakfast!
Whether our kids are 4 or 14, as moms we want them to start every day on the right foot. That can be challenging at times.  Our kids have individual personalities that are particularly apparent when they get out of bed in the morning. With older kids and teens - the way the day starts can be affected by something as simple as the way the breeze is blowing.  We do our best among the many factors that shape our children’s day. Many things we can’t control. But one of the things that we can do as moms is to provide and encourage them to eat a balanced breakfast to start the day - which in itself can be challenging.

Kids have pretty strong ideas and opinions about what do and don’t like for breakfast.  They may eat something one day and the next day decide they don’t like it anymore. We try cold breakfast, hot breakfast, gourmet, or simple. Oh what is a mom to do?

Why not make a balanced breakfast a treat with this yummy Nutella® Nutelladilla recipe?*  It’s simple, it’s delicious, and for kids on the go running out the door, it can be very portable!

Nutella® Nutelladilla

1 whole wheat tortilla
1Tbs Nutella
½ cup lowfat cottage cheese
⅓  bananna, sliced in pieces
3 strawberries, sliced in pieces

Spread the Nutella® evenly across the tortilla.  Spread the cottage cheese on one half.  Place the banana and strawberry slices on top of the cottage cheese.  Fold over and eat!

Variations: Replace whole wheat tortilla with a gluten free option.  Replace cottage cheese with ricotta or other low-fat soft cheeses or yogurts.

Make it transportable: For the older kid on the go... instead of folding, wrap like a burrito.

The MOM Hat is the most beautiful and important one we wear when it comes to the daily lives of our kids.  We do our best to wear it creatively, and lovingly.  For even the most seasoned of us, every mom can use some fresh ideas.  Check out the Nutella Breakfast Tour in Phoenix November 24-27 for live demonstrations of how you can use Nutella to bring some yumminess to your family breakfast table.
