    Default Quick breakfast ideas for preschooler

    Hi mommies
    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

    I often make a huge batch of wholemeal blueberry pancakes on the weekend, and freeze the leftovers with sheets of baking paper between them. In the mornings they take 45 seconds to defrost in the microwave.

    I do an egg pancake ( omelette) for my 20 month old in 5 mins, I use one of those small egg frypans, beat 2 eggs and add whatever I have in the fridge ( usually tomato, mushroom, cheese and basil) pour in frypan , cook 2 mins one side, flip and 1 min the other side, cut into strips so it's easy to hold

    What about a smoothie? A bit of fresh fruit, a bit of milk or yoghurt, give it a whirl and it's good to go!

    This.

    I also use the frozen Gourmet Smoothie Cubes. I quite like them myself.

    Porridge is a good one as you can do it plain (with a bit of milk and honey) or make it more exciting with grated apple, cinnamon, sultanas etc. If you buy quick oats it's very quick to do in the microwave and then add the extras.
