View Full Version : Quick breakfast ideas for preschooler
I'm running out of ideas for my 3 year old.
She usually has cereal (Cheerios, Honey Stars) with some cut fresh fruits (strawberries, bananas) for breakfast. And our cooked breakfasts (pancakes, bacon) on weekends.
Lately I think she's getting bored of the cereal n fruit or yoghurt thing.
Any quick breakfast ideas? Our mornings are usually hectic :(
Toast with a spread ?
Sandwich ( my ds is 6 and has a devon sandwich for breakfast most mornings, not ideal I know but he eats it all without too much fuss)
Fruit bread or toast
I've never really worried about that! I have a bowl of cereal every single morning for breakfast so my DS has the same - choice of weetbix, cheerios or rice bubbles. I've never gotten bored with cereal for breakfast so I can't imagine he will. Obviously lunch and dinner are always varied etc. I grew up on cereal too and never got bored of it hehehe.
How about savoury muffins? Make a batch ahead in time so they are ready for breakfast in the morning.
share a book
Mini quiches ? Make ahead and then give a re heat or even serve cold. Mixed fruit salad with fresh fruit
We have scrambled eggs no toast, takes 5 mins.
We alternate between cereal, oats and toast on weekdays. I don't worry too much about DD (3) getting bored. We're in such a rush I just go with the quickest, healthiest option that will keep her going :)
Our kids usually have bran and organic weetbix and muesli topped with yoghurt and fruit.
I often make butcher muesli the night before and just cover it with yoghurt and berries or bananas the next morning. My kids love it, it's probably one of our favourites and really easy!
Oats or chia pudding are good too.
Pancakes with fruit.
Eggs on toast
Avocado on toast
Hummus on toast
Tomato on toast
We do quick & easy too, cereal and banana bread (dd1 is wheat free so I bake it and freeze it in slices). If we have time we have a yoghurt and/or fruit, or on weekends we sometimes do a cooked brekkie for a change.
