Our mornings start early – the kids like to get up at 6am and that means Breakfast is early and usually at 7am at the very latest so Breakfast Ideas that really work with J and T are a must. It used to be easy – J has toast and half a banana and T has cereal and the other half of the Banana. Then just before Christmas T started to refuse cereal so we’ve had to get creative and come up with 7 days of Breakfast Ideas for Kids to set them up for each day of the week that move away from cereal.
7 Days of Breakfast Ideas for Kids to set them up each day of the week
Day 1 – Scrambled Eggs and Toast
Start off the week with some creamy scrambled Eggs from Momma Cooks and toast, add extra’s into your scrambled eggs to make it even more tasty – I loved adding chopped fresh tomatoes and onions into mine when I lived in Costa Rica really adds a little extra to your breakfast.
Day 2 – Pancakes
Whether you make plain pancakes or get adventurous like these gorgeous cinnamon Bun Pancakes from Baked Bree pancakes are a fun breakfast for your kids – served with fruit and yogurt you add some healthy options in the mix as well.
Day 3 – French Toast or Eggy Bread
A camp food for me, but why not bring some French Toast (or Eggy Bread) into a regular breakfast it brings back so many memories of sitting outside tents eating breakfast on my lap before going off for the day that I just love this recipe from Kitchen Monsters.
Day 4 – Porridge
Back to traditional warming breakfast of porridge oats, we’re big fans of Goldilocks and the 3 bears and having porridge we pretend we are Goldilocks trying each of them to see which we prefer each time. I love this recipe from BBC Good Food for perfect porridge.
Day 5 – Smoothies
With milk and fruit, these are probably one of the healthiest selections on this list, they are delicious – I first made them after seeing the 101 of Smoothie making on Meet the Dubiens and although we only have 2 flavours in the house that the kids will try – Strawberry or Banana it’s fun to make together.
Day 6 – Toasted Crumpets
A totally English treat Crumpets – they are deliciously doughy and smoothered in butter and honey are one of my favourite breakfast treats – we’re swapping the honey for some jam and I’m going to give a go at making some using this delicious recipe from Julie Takes Photos.
Day 7 – Yogurt and Fruit
Still one of my favourite summer breakfasts Greek yogurt with sliced fruit and drizzled with honey – I remember sitting on a beach in Greece and eating it for the first time and loved it ever since you can make it your own with added extra’s like this recipe.
