Start the new year off right with this nutrient-packed Berry Breakfast Bowl, by our friend (and Honest Mama) Juli Novotny Goddard. The addition of chia seed pudding gives your usual acai bowl a hearty update that makes it great for breakfast, or any time of day. Let your littles get creative with whatever toppings they love best!
