Because our little ones have small tummies and big nutrition requirements, we need to make sure they start their day off right with a good breakfast. Here’s 3 easy and nutritious breakfast recipes kids love—and parents and caregivers too!
Busy mornings can make breakfast a stressful time when cooking for your little ones. As a pediatric dietitian and nutritionist I always want to make sure my kids are getting all of the nutrients and protein they need to start their day off right.
In this post, I share three of my favorite easy and healthy breakfast recipes for kids. Each can be made ahead of time, so busy mornings run as smoothly as possible:
- Protein-packed egg bites
- 3-ingredient flourless banana pancakes
- Breakfast taquitos
What’s most important when it comes to breakfast is “staying power.”
A breakfast with staying power is one that will keep your kids fuller longer, and keep their bodies and brains energized and fueled for school. What’s also SUPER important (and I speak for myself), is that it’s quick and easy to prepare. And a bonus? If you can make it in bulk and freeze it.
Eggs are the perfect school-day breakfast food because they’re packed full of protein, which means they have staying power, and vitamins and minerals. My kids and I are going to show you how to make our three favourite school breakfast recipes, all of which you can make ahead and freeze for busy mornings. And for those little ones with allergies and intolerances, we’ve made these all gluten and dairy free! Psst—these also make for great additions to lunch kits too!
