7 Recipes for a Brilliant Brunch with Kids

7 Recipes for a Brilliant Brunch with Kids

Stress-free and delicious (really!)

The week is flying by, you've been working hard, and you deserve to relax a little this weekend. A lengthy brunch with friends comes into mind, but with the little ones in tow, you fear that it will become a nightmare before it has even started. 

Even us parents who have not experienced an impatient waitstaff, or fellow guests who roll their eyes at kids running around, have some level of paranoia about it. The truth is, often there is nothing else for kids to do in a cafe, and not much to their taste on the menu, which can cut the relaxing brunch experience short.
