Looking for some quick and yummy breakfast ideas to make for your toddler? Here are some simple breakfast ideas that are full of flavors, textures, and nutrients that you can make at home. These ideas will help your toddler’s plate be more well-balanced and packed with the nutrients they need to grow.
1. Full Fat Greek Yogurt Mixed with Nut Butters or Fruit Purees
Full-fat Greek yogurt helps support healthy development, so make sure to buy full-fat rather than low-fat or fat-free yogurt.
2. Avocado Toast:
I recommend whole grain bread and you can even sprinkle some cheese on top for extra calories and calcium.
3. Breakfast Smoothie:
Include whole fat yogurt, fresh or frozen fruits, spinach, chia seeds, flax seeds, or nut butter to make every sip packed with nutrition.
4. Scrambled eggs with Cheese and/or Chopped Vegetables with Low Sodium Turkey Sausage or Bacon
Eggs are filled with healthy nutrients such as protein and vitamins. Adding in some cheese, chopped vegetables, or low sodium turkey sausage or bacon can help pack in more nutrients and/or protein.
5. Oatmeal with Berries:
You can add in chopped berries or sprinkle cinnamon for a stronger flavor. To add some fat and extra calories, you can add nut butter, whole milk/milk substitutes, or heavy cream.
6. Cottage Cheese with Fruit:
Cottage cheese is a great source of protein and calcium. Adding fruit like sliced bananas or berries is a great way to add in some more nutrients and make it a more balanced meal.
7. Frozen or Packaged Pancakes or Waffles:
Kodiak Cakes are a great option if you need to add some protein at breakfast time. You can add butter, syrup, and nut butter for additional calories and fat.
