Slow-Poke Kids Breakfast: Turtle Waffle

Kids love animals, and it amazes me how all three of my girls have chosen different animals as their favorites. My eldest has always loved elephants; she even collects them (no, not the real ones!). I just found out my middle daughter has chosen giraffes as her new favorite —  I’m pretty partial to them as well. At the age of three, my youngest set her heart on being a vet. Now she’s almost six, and she loves every domestic animal equally. Turtles just so happen to be one of her domestic loves — so I decided to turn her healthy whole-wheat waffle into a fun domestic turtle, complete with clementine butterflies!


What You’ll Need:
1 toaster waffle
black sprinkle (a chocolate chip would work, too)


To Make Turtle Waffle:
Toast your waffle per directions on the box. Cut off a 1/4 of the waffle and place large portion on a plate as shown. Use slices of apple for the head, feet and tail. Use black sprinkle or chocolate chip for the eye. Peel a clementine and arrange slices as shown to create butterflies. Enjoy (slowly!)
