Easy Kids Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So you don’t want to slouch in this department. I know that life is busy and you’re always on the go. But you need to slow down and take time out for your children to have a nutritious breakfast.
They burn off tons of energy during the day with our easy appetizer recipe. You know how you feel by skipping breakfast, run down, no energy, and hungry.
Just imagine how their little bellies would feel if all they got was a doughnut. I know they like them but it burns off really fast. Then leaves them feeling run down.
We also know that children can be very picky when it comes to their food. Think about going to the grocery store and allow them to pick out some healthy fruit they would like.
After coming home you can wash it, slice it chunk, dice it whatever your prefer, and then you can store it into containers for the next morning. You can get them excited about eating their food if you give them a choice in what they eat.
How about taking a few minutes to put some pancake mix into the waffle iron or fry some pancakes up on the griddle. Then they can add their fresh fruit on top.

Another quick easy appetizer choice would be to get some old fashioned oats. And follow the directions on the package. Let them add in some spray butter or maybe a cinnamon or they can also add in their favorite dish with this dish.
You can even make up some grilled cheese with a wheat bread and low fat spray butter and their favorite cheese. Afterwards let them press out their favorite shapes with cookie cutters. Add a touch of plain yogurt with sliced apples.
