Lunch Box Waffle Sundae

Kill two birds with one stone with this simple school lunch recipe. First, it’s a way to use up leftover waffles (freezer waffles work just fine for this, too). And second, it’s an easy fix for the challenge of packing school lunch. Plus, who doesn’t love breakfast for lunch?

Simply crisp up a leftover waffle in the toaster and pack it in a wax paper bag or other container. Separately, pack plain yogurt, a favorite cereal or granola, fresh fruit, and enough maple syrup to make it just sweet enough. Kids can assemble the goodies at the lunch table. Don’t forget to include a fork!
