Kid-Friendly Mother’s Day Recipes

Delicious Mother’s Day meals a child can make and a mother will love

Pomegranate Mimosa

How do you make a mimosa even more marvelous? Give it a modern twist: Instead of OJ, use pomegranate juice. Not only does it taste delicious, but this purple-y version is packed with powerful antioxidants called polyphenols that protect against cell-damaging free radicals that could cause cancer or heart disease. And while moms might appreciate the champagne twist, the concoction can be made kid-friendly by using sparkling water instead.


1 750 ml bottle of champagne
or sparkling water

8 oz pomegranate juice


Pour 2 oz of pomegranate juice into champagne flutes, fill with champagne or sparkling water, and enjoy.

Breakfast Pizzas

Who said pizza wasn’t an a.m. food? Because turkey bacon is the star topping, you can sneak a meat onto the menu without the fat, and the wheat English muffins add fiber to mom’s diet. This recipe is an easy one: an adult can whisk and scramble the eggs, and the kids can take charge of the toasting and assembly.


2 whole wheat English muffins,
split and lightly toasted

Cooking oil spray

4 eggs

4 slices turkey bacon,
cooked and chopped

1 tsp tarragon

Salt and pepper to taste

4 slices tomato

2 oz grated reduced-fat cheese


Spray medium frying pan and preheat over medium heat. In a bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in cooked bacon, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour into pan. Scramble eggs lightly over medium heat until eggs are set. To assemble: Place one slice of tomato on English muffin half, top with scrambled eggs, and sprinkle with a tablespoon of cheese. Place English muffins on cookie sheet and broil 3–5 minutes until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
