Are you kids fed up with cereal want some fantastic breakfast ideas to kick start the school year and prepare the kids to learn throughout the day then check out these 7 days of breakfast ideas for kids to enjoy. Our mornings start early here – 6am is consider a lie in and when the kids are still asleep at 6:30 it’s a minor miracle in our household. We’ve adapted but now with both J and T at school for long days having a breakfast that keeps them filled up for the morning until snack time (sometime around 10) is essential. Whereas when they were toddlers cereal was a great food for them they have steadily gone off eating cereal and now most mornings when I am in a rush they end up with toast or some yoghurt it’s not exactly filling them up and keeping them going and ready to learn for the day so we’re changing things up and I’m sharing my 7 days of breakfast ideas to inspire you as well making sure that your kids have the fuel that they need to last the day at school.
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.
