Tips on Making and Serving Breakfasts

  1. Prep Ahead – To save your sanity during the busy weekday mornings – prep one or two breakfast recipes that can be stored in the fridge or freezer on the weekend. That way you can just heat and serve without much thought – Spinach Waffles, Blueberry Sheet Pancakes, Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins, and Zucchini Pancakes are some of our favorite freezer-friendly recipes.
  2. Picky-Eaters – You don’t need to feel the pressure to add in veggies or foods that your child doesn’t care for in the morning. Go with a breakfast they like and if you have the time add in fruit, yogurt, meat or other food they don’t care for as much on the side to expose your toddler to other food options as well.
  3. One Breakfast for the Entire Family – Make one breakfast for baby, toddler, kids, and you! I developed these breakfast recipes for toddlers and kids, but I eat them as well! One meal for the whole family! So don’t think that you have to make an extra meal just for yourself. I do usually add sriracha, butter or syrup to my portion depending on what the recipe is.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should a kid eat for breakfast?

Ideally, breakfast should be made of at least 3 food groups for a balanced meal. Protein will help keep them full for longer, as will fiber. Too much added sugar will cause energy crashes so choose whole grains instead of white grains loaded with added sugar.

What should a picky eater eat for breakfast?

Whatever they like (within reason)! Give your kid some options for breakfast and let them choose, and try to get them to help with making it, whether the night before or in the morning if you have time. When kids are involved in making the meal, they are more likely to eat it. And don’t forget about leftovers. They may not be your typical breakfast food but they can totally be eaten for breakfast.

Why is breakfast important for a child?

Breakfast helps provide children with the energy their busy little bodies need after a night of fasting for the day ahead. It fuels their brain and can help improve performance in school since it helps with memory and attention. Kids who eat breakfast tend to have higher test scores than those who do not.

Kid Serving Sizes

Serving sizes will vary from child to child but generally, kids need a quarter of the portion an adult does. Parents tend to overestimate servings for their children. I recommend starting small to not overwhelm your kid and give seconds if your kid wants more. Here are some examples of typical serving size for kids ages 2-12:

  • 1/4 cup dry cereal
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 -1/2 slice of bread
  • 1/2 egg
  • 1 oz. meat
  • 1/2 piece of fresh fruit
  • 1/3 cup of yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoons of cooked veggies

Balanced Breakfasts

Try to include at least three food groups when making breakfast to make it nutritious and filling. As a reminder, the food groups are fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. Below are some sample breakfast ideas with at least 3 food groups:

  • Yogurt, blueberries and granola
  • Peanut butter and banana on whole wheat toast
  • Veggie and cheese omelet
  • Cheese stick and pear slices
  • Cheerios and milk with a side of fruit
  • Boiled egg and steamed carrot sticks
  • Avocado and scrambled eggs on whole grain bread
  • Milk, spinach and fruit smoothie

Mini Meals

When your little one isn’t hungry for a full breakfast meal, try a mini-breakfast, which will help start their day off with some nutrition until they are ready for something more substantial. 

  • apple “donuts” – horizontally cut apples with the core removed, with cream cheese “frosting” and a pinch of sprinkles or freeze-dried fruit.
  • finger salad – an assortment of chopped fruits and veggies 
  • graham cracker sandwiches – made with cream cheese and jam
  • pb&j crackers – crackers topped with peanut butter and a dollop of jelly
  • avocado toast – whole-grain toast topped with avocado and everything bagel seasoning 
  • yogurt parfait – plain yogurt with a drizzle of honey, chopped berries and a sprinkle of granola
  • banana rice cake – rice cake topped with almond butter, slices of banana and hemp seed sprinkles. 

Breakfasts to Avoid

Ideally, you want to serve nutritious breakfasts that will help nourish your child’s body. While treats are occasionally fine, it’s best to serve whole foods instead of ultra-processed foods so your child stays fuller longer and they have the right nutrition to start their day off on the right foot.

  • Breakfast pastries like donuts, sugary muffins, cinnamon roles, Pop-Tarts, etc.
  • Sugary cereals
  • Highly processed meats like bacon and sausage
  • Juice drinks (not 100% fruit juice) like Minute Maid, Juicy Juice, fruit punch, Sunny-D, etc.
  • Too much juice
  • Coffee, Yoohoo, energy drinks

Breakfast Nutritional Tips for Your Toddler

  1. Don’t skip it– Kids who eat breakfast have been shown to do better in school as it helps with memory and attention.
  2. 3 food groups– Try to include at least 3 food groups at breakfast to make a well-balanced meal.
  3. Choose whole grains– Whole grains are full of fiber, which helps you keep full for longer. When choosing cereal or breads, look for the whole grain icon or make sure “whole grain” is listed as one of the first ingredients.
  4. Easy on added sugar- Many packaged breakfast items are full of added sugar, which can cause an energy crash later. Avoid cereals and breakfast pastries that have too much added sugar.
  5. Protein– Make sure to include protein at breakfast to help keep full throughout the morning. Good protein options are eggs, yogurt, milk, and nut butters.
  6. Fruit– Breakfast is a great time to help get in your daily fruit servings. You can choose one that is easy to eat on-the-go, like bananas or apples, or have cut-up fruit available.

Complete List of Breakfast Ideas

Here is a list of great breakfast ideas broken down into Whole Grains, Protein & Dairy, and Fruit options for breakfast.

Whole Grains for Breakfast

Serving whole-grain carbohydrates to your kids during snack time will help provide the energy they need to run and play all day long.

Protein and Dairy for Breakfast

Providing a serving of protein to your kid at breakfast time is a great idea as protein helps to fill your kid up and helps with muscle growth and development. Unless you are a plant-based family, aim to give a combination of both plant and animal proteins for a variety of nutrients and textures.

Fruit for Breakfast

Fruit is a great option to serve as part of a breakfast, as all fruit is filled with essential nutrients for growing kids! Plus, they are reliably available, easy to get on the table, and most kids like their sweet taste.
