    Default Breakfast ideas for 3-5 years old

    Hi all, just wondering what you give your child for breakfast before the school run, I'm looking for ideas as much as I like what I give my kids (scrambled egg & toast) I think it's time for a change and they are not into cereal.

    Thank you

    My DD isn't all that into breakfast, so it's a bit of a struggle for me. And she won't eat egg! I can get her to eat toast, a couple of brands of cereal (without milk though) and Belvita breakfast biscuits! Not brilliant choices, but she eats really well for lunch & dinner so it is what it is for now.

    If I asked DS what he felt like we would end up late everywhere.

    Omelette. Pikelets (I make banana and honey ones that are nice and freezable). Porridge? French toast/toast fingers. Breakfast smoothie.

    I've been making breakfast muffins lately - which are really just eggs mixed with different things and baked in a muffin pan for 20 mins - I do them on a Sunday and just warm them up at breakfast time , DS likes chopped tomato and feta and I add chia seeds and whatever herbs on hand, mix in a bowl with 6 eggs and pour into muffin tins (mini muffin ones are great for lunch boxes )
    Stay away from most cereals as the sugar content is ridiculous but plain organic porridge with a splash of maple syrup and banana is another favourite or toast with avocado or almond butter is a quick , healthy easy brekky

    When mine were that age, porridge and / or toast was our go to breakfast for weekdays.

    Weekends I mixed it up a bit and made eggs, muffins or pancakes.

    DS has the choice of porridge, weetbix or toast on weekdays. I occasionally do eggs on weekends.
