Kids Brainy Breakfast Ideas

kids brainy breakfast ideasA healthy nutritious breakfast that provides your kids with adequate energy is a great way to start the day. The best breakfasts should include fruit or vegetables, a dairy product (or alternative) and a wholegrain bread, cereal or grain product. Some may think that preparing and eating a healthy breakfast is time consuming, but this is not necessarily the case.

Why not try some of the following suggestions?

You can even mix and match according to your children’s tastes and preferences –

  • Raisin bread or fruit loaf, either plain or topped with ricotta cheese, and chopped strawberries or banana.
  • Wholegrain cereal with milk and chopped fruit such as banana or berries, or pureed fruit.
  • Hot porridge with milk, chopped banana or berries.
  • Yoghurt topped with a muesli style cereal and chopped or pureed fruit.
  • Baked beans with wholegrain toast and a small glass of diluted fruit juice.
  • Scrambled or poached eggs with toast and a glass of milk.
  • Wholegrain muffins with a slice of cheese and tomato and a piece of fruit.
  • Toasted bagels with avocado and a glass of milk.
  • Wholegrain toast with a thin spread of jam or honey plus sliced banana and a small tub of yoghurt.
  • Fruit smoothies – simply blend milk, yoghurt, soft fruit, and a sprinkle of wheatgerm or psyllium.
  • For an on-the-go breakfast, take a piece of fruit, a cheese stick, and few low fat crackers.

What a great way to start the day!
