Breakfast can get pretty routine – grab a box of cereal, a bowl and pour on the milk. I have been trying to push myself creatively for all our meals to think outside the box and today I am sharing 5 of our favorite no cereal toddler breakfasts. I usually eat the same things that I fix for Ryker but obviously in different portions or more blended together. Let’s take a look 🙂
I can almost always get my 2 year old to eat oatmeal! A lot of the times I take the easy route and do oatmeal packets but on weekends we usually make a big pot of oats and add in peaches and cinnamon. Ryker loves both. If I haven’t add in fruit, then I usually pair it with blueberries, a banana and yogurt.
Bear toast is a big hit in the morning especially before we took a trip up north to Bearizona. Post on that fun trip coming later 🙂 I spread on a little nutella and decorated with banana slices and blueberries to make a cute bear face. I also gave Ry the rest of the banana and berries on the side. We paired this yummy friend with a bowl full of peaches and cottage cheese (his FAVORITE)
CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA PROTEIN MUFFINS
On mornings when things are running smoothly, I love to whip up muffins. This recipe is found on the Kodiak Cakes box for chocolate chip banana protein muffins. I love making mini muffins because they are great on the go, easy for Ry to eat without making too big of a mess and I can make a lot to have for breakfasts on busier mornings. I usually make a few regular size ones as well for Cameron to grab before work. I paired these with Sunsweet dried apricots and some fresh blueberries.
Whole Wheat Bagel + Fruit
This is one of our faster go-to breakfasts but I still feel good about it being healthy for my boy and honestly Ry love it. I like to mix up the fruit and I added in a Mamma Chia pouch while I prepared cutting the apples!
I don’t know about your kids, but if Ry can dip it – he will eat it. I cut a pancake into little stripes and added some strawberry organic yogurt for dipping paired with some sliced strawberries. This also works great for french toast stripes and is a little healthier option than syrup.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of our favorite toddler breakfasts! Have a great weekend!
