    Do they like avocado? Our fav at the moment is chunky avocado and feta spread on toasted sourdough - DS could eat it all day!

    I know you said they don't like eggs but maybe try again as they really are the healthiest high fat/protein brekky - maybe an egg pancake or boiled egg with toast fingers or mashed on toast?

    Thanks guy's, great suggestions! Forgot to add DD loves pancakes, DS not so keen, but he does eat them, I like all the suggestions on how to make them more nutritious!
    DS loves baked beans, had forgotten this, will have to get some, or maybe even make some myself.
    I have tried muffins, although I am guilty of adding too many veggies, which I think puts them off, might try some fruit ones, although I am guilty of pretending fruit muffins are cake- so if I let them have them for breakfast they might not think they're a treat anymore!
    I think I'm a bit guilty of letting them have what they want for breakfast (so I can get a sleep in), but probably need to approach it as any other meal- like this is for breakfast and if you don't want it there isn't anything else.

    This thread gave me an idea, I wonder if I can add avocado to my pancake batter that I make...

    What about making an omelette but in the shape of some sort and some fruit.

    Apparently kids like their food when it's made up nicely.

Our favourite is - 1 banana, a handful of berries, a handful of almonds, a few dates, a handful of spinach. Whizz it up for 2-3 mins. Breakfast muffins or scones that can be frozen &warmed in the microwave - date scones are great, so are pumpkin scones -both have a lot of sweetness & no need to add sugar.
    With the smoothie recipe- do you add milk to it? They might go for it.

    DS likes avocado, but DD doesn't, I love avo and feta on toast too! I think I made the mistake with the eggs of not giving them to them as babies, not sure why, I eat eggs for breaky most mornings, DD will sometimes have a try but DS is totally against them.
    Maybe I should try this egg pancake idea.

    Haha this is true, I used to make DS's salad into a Ninja Turtle and he would eat it all, maybe I need to get creative.

    I have recently introduced a crunchy fruity muesli with yogurt to our breakfast choices and the boys are loving it and so am I. I have struggled to find something I really like for breakfast but I think I've finally found it 😉
