Also, it brings out their inner Picasso and encourages them to use their imagination.

When I told my son about the food paint and that each tube contained a different brightly colored puree: red strawberry, yellow peach, and purple-ish blue blueberry he said: “mom we must make something with fruit for breakfast.”
And, that’s how we came up with the Breakfast Yogurt Fruit Boats, which kind of reminds me of smoothie bowls, fruit bowls, and breakfast yogurt parfaits.
How to Make Breakfast Yogurt Fruit Boats
First, we used a plate and spooned some Greek yogurt in the center.
Second, we peeled two bananas and placed them across from each other on top of the yogurt.
Third, my son put Greek yogurt in the middle of the bananas and around each of them on the plate. Then he used the purple-ish blue blueberry food paint to make the yogurt look like water.
Fourth, he used his favorite fruit blackberries, raspberries, and mandarin oranges to fill the fruit boat.
Last, we cut the sail for the sailboat from a block of cheddar cheese. We carefully used a knife to make a triangle from the block cheese.
Then we inserted a toothpick in the bottom of the cheese.
Also, we stuck a blackberry into the bottom of the toothpick, and my son placed the sail onto his boat.
Finally, my son decorated his breakfast boat with the yellow peach food paint. And, put polka dots on his cheese sail using all three of the food paints.
Aren’t the boats cute? They make the perfect breakfast or healthy snack.
Additionally, you could use a piece of apple or strawberry for the sail and make homemade whip cream to put on top of the fruit with granola for a yummy snack.
Serve the fruit boats with a spoon or two to share with a friend.
My son has been using each flavor to decorate his oatmeal, waffles, pancakes, peanut butter jelly sandwiches, bagels, muffins, and more.
He has even eaten some of the puree straight from the tubes. He told me he loves the taste and the food paints make his food fun to eat.
