    Hi, just wondering what everyone is feeding their toddler for breakfast?

    Bircher muesli is a big fave here I make it the night before and make it look all pretty in the morning by topping it with yoghurt, nuts and berries.

    Wholemeal toast with avo, hummus, tahini

    Egg in an eggcup with soliders

    Muesli

    Yoghurt and fruit

    Pancakes

    He has a banana and sippy cup of milk first thing which usually fills him up, but then I offer him either toast with organic peanut butter or cereal and milk. He has something ridiculously healthy from the health food aisle at coles, at the moment it's spelt flakes with agave, previously it was quinoa and brown rice "O" things. Usually he eats a few spoonfuls then tips the bowl upside down *sigh*

    He usually just wants my sugary cereal or DH's toast with jam. We try to only give him a little bit.

    He won't do porridge. He loves scrambled eggs but that's usually a lunch thing.

    We alternate between 4:

    Egg pancakes ( mini omelets usually 2 eggs with tomato/basil/feta) cut into strips so great finger food

    Banana or blue berry pancakes ( wholemeal flour, eggs, a2 milk and fresh fruit)

    Spelt or wholemeal toast with avo or nut butter

    Porridge or muesli ( he's not a huge fan)

    Plus I usually give fruit while im getting his brekky ( strawberry, pineapple, pear or kiwi this month!)

    DD1 has weetbix everyday without fail.
    DD2 swaps between a crumpet with honey, English muffin with peanut butter or toast and Vegemite. It takes her about an hour to eat half a piece of any of those...
    DS has oatmeal with puréed fruit- either apple, pear or a combination. He's only 9 months so hasn't told me he wants something different!

    dd (10.5 months) has oat flakes (baby cereal) with pureed fruit ... sometimes with yoghurt added. Or she has nutrigrain (a current favourite with my 5yo ds and it's a great breakfast finger food).

    I struggle to find time to fit breakfast into our morning routine, so the finger food option is good for us right now. I'm working on different options since she started refusing the baby cereal with yoghurt & fruit 2 weeks ago (not every day, but most days). Tomorrow morning will probably be pikelets.

    lol Yep DS does the same. When hes had enough he would either tip the bowl upside down or he would scoop all the cereal onto the table. AND he LOVES my sugary cereal!

    I don't think I could cope coming up with a variation of breakfasts as well as lunch and dinner, I keep it really simple.
    Weetbix
    Porridge and cinnamon
    Toast with Vegemite or scrambled eggs.

    Thats it for all of us! Nobody has ever complained.
