Updated:
Many parents around the country are taking on the challenge of healthy eating, but how do you make breakfast healthy and still tasty for your children?  One chef is handing out his advice. He says to keep it simple and sweet by getting colorful and creative. Using fruits such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and bananas to make creative displays that can really help. The chef and breakfast guru brings us more tips on making healthy breakfast magic at home.

Chef Mark Anthony Bailey says, "Using food coloring is the best thing. When they see bright reds, oranges, yellows, it brings them back to arts and crafts and basically drawing and stuff like that. So I like to use food coloring especially in pancakes and once again bringing in that arts and crafts element, cookie cutters, making heart shaped pancakes, star-shaped. When kids are involved in the actual process of making the breakfast they tend to want to eat it."

Chef Bailey also believes that while eating sugary foods is bad for kids, A little sugar doesn't hurt. One example from the chef, is making a banana casserole and incorporating a healthy cereal like grape nuts to the dish.
