This is a kid-friendly breakfast or snack. Get kids involved with stuffing their own pita – as they are more likely to then eat ‘their creations!’. Easy to add more protein with a dollop of natural peanut or almond butter too (allergies permitting). Yum!


Makes: 2 adult or 4 toddler
Difficulty: easy


  • 2 whole-wheat pitas
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • Grapes and berries
  • Banana
  • Optional – natural peanut or nut butter


Start by slicing a whole-wheat pita bread in half and then create a pocket shape by carefully opening up the top of the pita. Next, pop the pita half into the toaster and heat until lightly brown.

Get stuffing!

This is the fun part. Choose your family’s favorite fruits and cut up into bite sized pieces. Kids can help with the chopping, or for smaller hands, get them to stuff the pita pocket until it’s half full.

Top it off!

Top off this tasty treat by adding in a spoonful of natural yogurt and a sprinkling of raisins or a spread of peanut or nut butter.

Neat cheats

If you’re short on time, start to make your pita pockets the night before. Chop the fruit and keep overnight in the fridge. If you’re chopping apple, pear or banana, a little lemon juice will stop them from going brown. You can also use tinned fruit (drained) if you are in a hurry (go for the fruit in natural juice, not syrup).

Make it together!

Children can help with all stages of preparation on this one. That includes chopping, stuffing and sprinkling. An example toddler portion for this is 1/2 – 1 mini pita or 1/4 – 1/2 pita.

Messy fun! Sheena x
