If your toddler or preschooler is staging a protest each morning at the breakfast table, you may need to liven things up in the morning. Not every family has time for elaborate breakfast displays and short order cooking, so take a look at these simple breakfast ideas for inspiration!

  2. Do your kids love blueberry pie? Let them know that this blueberry pie oatmeal truly tastes like the real thing, and they’ll gobble it up, not knowing how many antioxidants are inside.
  3. On a hot summer morning, smoothies can start to sound very appealing. This key lime smoothie has a dessert-like feel, but is full of protein and will both refresh and sustain your child.
  4. When your child happily eats mini waffles every morning, you might start worrying about the amount of protein he’s getting at breakfast. Solution? Make a mini waffle sandwich with peanut butter in between two waffles.
  5. These open sandwiches with almond butter on bananas are a hit with kids. They’re a little silly, and made with entirely healthy ingredients.
