Struggling With What To Make For Breakfast? Healthy Breakfast For Kids

 

Breakfast time can be tough – everyone is in a rush and you want to ensure the family gets a healthy meal before heading off for their day. What to make for breakfast? In my house breakfasts consist of either boxed cereals or pre-prepared homemade options.    It has to be easy to grab and serve!

 

We steer clear of the sugary, boxed cereals to start with a good foundation and provide a healthy breakfast for kids. We didn’t want to get my daughter used to them for fear she would never eat others!  I then include some type of “booster” to get a bit more nutrition into the meal.   Here are two of the frequent choices in our house;

 

  1. Kamut Puffs with hemp hearts (filled with protein, essential fats & fiber), berries and almond milk or milk.
  2. Power O’s (like cheerios but made with beans for added nutrition and fiber!)  again topped with berries and almond milk or milk.

 

I will share two of my pre-made breakfast options today and over the coming weeks share some more.  They are all about simplicity and preparation.

 

 

  1. Overnight Oats (aka “Special breakfast” in my house)

 

  1. Chia Seed Pudding

This recipe is adapted from one I saw on cleaneating’s website that called for pumpkin.  The pumpkin didn’t appeal to me so I tried with some strawberries! I like it because the chia seeds are blended which really eliminates any of the texture.  For children like my daughter who don’t like texture this is a way to get them to eat chia seeds.

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3s, protein, antioxidants, and fiber.

 

 

 

To balance this out with some carbohydrates for my daughter I may serve it with some dry power-o’s or toast on the side.

 

Hope you try some of these out and get your days off to a great nutritious and delicious start!

 

Looking forward to sharing more next time!
