10 Quick & Easy Kids’ Breakfast Ideas

What should kids eat for breakfast? It’s a common concern when switching over to a healthy lifestyle. The transition from Frosted Flakes and frozen waffles to spinach and eggs can be… well, ugly. But it doesn’t have to be with these simple, delicious, and health-boosting breakfast ideas.

I like to bounce between the following options, but focus on getting healthy protein and fat in, especially from eggs! We eat eggs 3-4 times a week in order to promote good brain function and blood sugar regulation during the school day. We also like to mix in sweet options like yogurt parfaits, lemon loaf (served with bacon or sausage, of course!), and “chocolate pudding”.

Without further ado, on to the post! Let me know your favorite breakfast recipes in the comment section below!

 

#1. Lemon Loaf

Serve my upgraded (gluten-free) lemon loaf (recipe HERE) with organic bacon or sausage, and a side of fruit, for a healthy meal. Side of coffee for the mamas, of course ;)

#2. Egg Muffins

Another quick and healthy option for breakfast on the go. Bonus: you can customize the fillings based on your kids’ likes & dislikes!

#3. Egg-in-a-Hole

If you use gluten-free bread, pasture-raised eggs, and real butter, egg in a hole can be a truly healthy breakfast!

You can find a great egg-in-a-hole recipe HERE from The Pioneer Woman.

#4. Brazi Bites with Chicken Sausage

You can purchase both of these products at Costco. This combo makes a great breakfast for those on-the-go mornings!

#6. Deviled Eggs

I start with simple hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.

DIRECTIONS

  • Put eggs on trivet in the pot and add 1 cup water

  • Set IP manual 4 minutes

  • Quick release when finished 

  • Plunge eggs into icy cold water 

  • Peel eggs

  • (These are the easiest hard-boiled eggs you’ll ever peel!)

Separate the yolks from the whites, and mix the yolks with avocado oil mayo and pickle juice.

Fill the egg whites with your yolk mixture and you’re good to go!

Serve with bacon, gluten-free toast, and fruit for a delicious balanced breakfast.

#7. Moo-Less Chocolate Mousse

This chocolate mousse is healthy enough for breakfast- packed with healthy fats from avocado and coconut milk, and

sweetened simply with banana and a touch of maple syrup. You can try adding a scoop or two of collagen as well. Recipe link HERE.

#8. 3 Ingredient Pancakes

A hit with moms and kids alike, I love these because they’re simple and balanced with proteins, carbs, and healthy fats.

You can find my recipe HERE.

#9. Upgraded Breakfast Tacos

I love to make these upgraded breakfast tacos for my family!

Make sure you use a healthier tortilla option like those below. You’ll want to choose one that is gluten-free or grain-free, and free of hydrogenated oils.

For fillings, I like to include scrambled eggs, grass-fed cheese, and sometimes salsa!

You can even make these ahead, roll them in foil and refrigerate. The next morning, put them in the oven to warm up before you hit the road.

#10. Yogurt Parfaits

Making yogurt parfaits as a family is always a hit. I love the Maple Hill 100% Grass-fed whole milk yogurt. Add toppings like fresh and dried fruit, honey, and even granola (The Purely Elizabeth Chocolate Sea Salt granola is my favorite!). If you want to be an overachiever, you can add a scoop or two of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.
