3 of the Best Breakfasts to Feed Your Kids

When it comes to weekday breakfasts, you want them to be quick, nutritious and to create as little mess as possible. This is why you need to check out this list of simple, tasty, and healthy breakfasts, all of which can be prepped in advance so you don’t have to panic at 8 a.m. on a Tuesday. Providing a filling and healthy breakfast is really important for children’s cognitive functioning and their physical development, so embrace these recipes as your new breakfast heroes.

Savory Muffins

A batch of savory muffins can be whipped up on a Sunday night in a matter of minutes. Simply combine 1 cup of flour with 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of milk, plus whichever fillings you would like. Popular options include cheese, chopped cooked onions, bacon, toasted seeds, and spinach.

Eggs Anyway

Eggs are a fabulous source of vital nutrients and minerals, so frying up some eggs in the morning or making a quick scrambled egg can be a great option for your kid’s morning meal. If you’re really pressed for time in the morning, make an omelet (with added vegetables for more nutrition). This can be heated in the microwave in the morning or enjoyed straight out of the fridge, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning any pans in the morning.

Overnight Oats

An ever-popular choice for those in a morning rush, overnight oats can be easily adapted to suit your kid’s taste preferences and are so easy to make that you can even teach your kid the method so they can prepare their own. Soak 3 tablespoons of oats per person in 6 tablespoons of milk, water or a plant-based milk alternative. Add some nut butter, seeds, berries, or whatever else you want to use to flavor the oats, and then leave them overnight.
