Get a Move On – A Trip Around the World, Part 5

map-of-australiaGood Day Mate! Welcome to Australia – the next stop in our food tour around the world. Children in Australia grow up with koalas, kangaroos and wallabies in their country. While Australians live “down under” they start their day off right, just like us, with breakfast! One of their favorite breakfast cereals is muesli. Similar to granola, muesli is toasted oats, nuts, dried fruits and cereal flakes. You can find muesli in the cereal aisle in the grocery store.

Why not take a trip to Australia with your child over breakfast? Try mixing muesli with milk – like you do with cereal. Or, mix it with any flavored yogurt for a fun way to start the day. Remember to involve your child in learning and talking about Australia – try a morning of make believe and invite a koala over for breakfast!

Next stop? Brazil!

This is part of the Get a Move On series – keeping your child healthy through activity and movement.
