To the kids: Delectable and easy to prepare treats for Mom!

Attention all skaters! Ask yourself: where would you be without Mom? Who would have brought you to your 6 AM practices? Or spent their holidays in a cold arena to cheer you on at your tournament? Sure, Dad can step up to the plate, but Mom is always there to make sure that you are well fed and we

ll rested and have BOTH elbow pads in your bag.

May is the month of Mother’s Day, but our Moms definitely deserve more than just a day! Here are some easy and tasty ways to spoil Mom throughout the month of May.

1. Surprise her with a 6am-er Yogurt Parfait!

No, this doesn’t require you to get up extra early. It only takes about 5 minutes to prepare the night before!

2. Make All Her Favourite Things No-bake Granola Bars.

In addition to you, these granola bars include all of your Mom’s favourite foods in one. Make these for your Mom before your next tournament to keep her going all day, or surprise her with one in her lunch bag.

3. Treat her to breakfast in bed. Start with a Healthy Berry Smoothie and while she’s sipping away, bring her the Best(Mom)-Ever Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.

Have fun exploring the kitchen and remember to ask an adult for help if you need it!
