CHIA PARFAIT

These multi-layered granola parfaits not only look beautiful they also make a fantastic, nutritious breakfast and even better lunchbox snack.

Chia seeds pack a nutritional punch: made up of complete protein (containing all eight essential amino acids), lots of Omega-3s and dietary fibre. And let’s not forget the heap of minerals in there, including calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous.
