When thinking about breakfast for your child, you want to make sure to have a few components in place for each meal – that they’ll actually eat, too!

Eating a variety of foods is a good way to start your day!

Try adding in these good-for-you items for breakfast. If you can’t get them all in – try for most!

  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • grains
  • protein
  • dairy products

My kids love almost all breakfast food – especially the sugary cereals that I don’t let them have before school! haha!

But, I do let them have a variety of food that they probably don’t even realize is good for them!

Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Kids

  • eggs – scrambled, in bowls or on quesadillas
  • waffles, or pancakes (try wheat or whole-grain varieties)
  • cold cereal and milk
  • oatmeal with raisins
  • low sugar smoothie bowls
  • whole-grain bagels with cream cheese and strawberry preserves
  • whole-wheat toast with peanut butter & honey
  • yogurt with fruit or nuts

    Great recipe! I didn’t have maple syrup so I used honey. I also didn’t have coconut oil so I used butter. I also added about 1t or 2 of pumpkin pie spice. I think the maple syrup would’ve been better per the recipe. But I like that it’s customizable, walnuts would be fantastic. The verdict is still out with my 2 year old, but he’s painstakingly picky with texture sensory issues.
