Keep kids hydrated this summer with non-sugary drinks and fruits like watermelon, which is made up of 92 percent water. Try this breakfast lasagna made with watermelon, corn flakes, and other fruits for a healthy, hydrating meal.

Breakfast Lasagna

Servings: 6

Ingredients:

- 4 cups corn flakes

- 2 cups minced watermelon

- 2 cups fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries

- 2 cups vanilla yogurt

Directions
Place 1/3 of the corn flakes in an even layer in the bottom of an 8”x8” serving dish. Mix together the watermelon, blueberries, and yogurt in a separate bowl. Spoon half of the fruit and yogurt mixture over the corn flake layer evenly. Sprinkle another layer of corn flakes over the yogurt and then layer the remaining yogurt over that. Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining corn flakes.
