With a very active toddler, I found the trick is to eat the same breakfast. No really. Once your toddler is able to eat on his or her own, no need to bother with multiple breakfasts.
Simple grilled cheese, however I add a quickly scrambled egg and some leaves of baby spinach before grilling. This takes all but 5 min to assemble and we both enjoy it. It also combines protein, dairy, carbohydrates for a well balanced meal. The spinach is not overpowering and adds a good source of iron which is great for a growing toddler.
I always have waffles in my freezer...they are perfectly fine to serve you and your child...read labels choose ones with fibre and made with whole wheat. Turkey sausages are a lean alternative to others, and cooks quickly. My son loves blueberries but I mix up the fruit option to keep variety in our diet.
This is easy and needs no explanation. But its simplicity doesn't make it boring. My son likes to have his yogurt, fruit and cereal all on his table and tops it with his cereal and gobbles it down. Just choose cereals not high in sugar (should not be one of top 3 ingredients) and should provide at least 2g of fibre per serving.
This is a fan favourite at my house. I put together a blend of cinnamon and sugar and keep it on hand. Butter some bread (opt to use non-hydrogenated margarine of course), add a sprinkle of this cinnamon blend and toast in a toaster oven or oven to your liking. Serve with fruit and yogurt; super easy, balanced and they will love it...so will you.
My toddler loves this, mostly because we make it fun and make it together.
I just add milk, bananas, frozen strawberries and a healthy scoop of natural peanut butter. It is delicious and nutritous and filling.
This is easier than it seems...I am not ashamed to buy pancake mix though. I add berries to my batter and make a couple, this literally takes 5 minutes. Scrambling some eggs is easy, nothing fancy there...serve with your pancakes and voila.
