17 Easy Breakfast Recipes & Ideas for Kids


Goooood Morning! Speaking of mornings… mornings are about to get a little more hectic with school starting up again! It is pretty important to make sure everyone gets a good breakfast to start the day off right. Cold cereal with enough fiber, protein, low sugar, and whole grains can be a good and easy option, especially when you get it discounted (cereal coupons)! Add chia or ground flax seeds for extra fiber. Even though my kids LOVE cereal, it’s good to mix it up our breakfast options every once in a while. And I often ask myself, “What are good breakfast ideas for kids?”. Well we can all stop asking that question because we’ve gathered up some of the best, yummiest, and healthiest breakfast recipes that you and your kids can enjoy all school year long! My favorites are the ones that can be made ahead and freeze. Frozen pancakes and waffles can easily be popped into the toaster for a quick meal! Add a side of fruit to your breakfast for even more nutrition and fiber! Enjoy these kid-friendly breakfast recipes that will get you and the kids energized and back to school!
