Breakfast is as important as dinner and to toddlers, maybe it is more important than is it for adults. So, making sure that your kid is getting a healthy meal early in the morning is important. Weekday mornings are always busy, kids rush for their schools and adults for their works. These healthy and simple breakfasts will save a lot of time and will prompt good health as well. Here have a look at what I cover in the post.
1: SNACK PLATE
A healthy snack plate can give a lot of energy in the morning and kids do love them. A low-sugar dry cereal or crackers, cheese, cottage cheese, nut butter, an egg or salami, fresh fruits, etc. are pretty much preferable. You can also sprinkle some fruit jams as per your convenient.
Toddlers basically love smoothies. They contain fruits, vegetables, protein, fat, and many healthy components. You can make it simple and healthy with 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup frozen bananas, 1/2 cup fruits like mangoes and bananas, add 1/4 cup vegetables like baby spinach, sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon nut butter or hemp seeds, etc. Moreover, 1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt with 1/2 cup strawberries is also a great option.
#3: OVERNIGHT OATS
Overnight oats can really help your kids gaining important nutrition. If you can add yogurt, fruit, and carbohydrates to oats, it will really help your child. These meals are more likely thick and nice, so you can easily feed them to your kid with a spoon. Some mother also uses overnight oats as a lunch idea for their toddlers.
If you have leftover some pancakes from last night dinners, just put them in a zip-top freezer bag and place them in the freezer. Reheat them next morning and feed them to your toddler with sandwiched with nut butter, cream cheese, or Greek yogurt.
#5: A WHOLE GRAIN
Just bake some eggs and stash them in the freezer. You can serve them in the next morning with toast sticks, cut up fruit, or leftover vegetables. No matter if your toddler like the white or the yolk, they will love this meal.
Some kids like oatmeal and some hate it. However, you can make it interesting in many ways so that your toddler will find it edible. Use apple or raisins one week, mango and strawberry in another week, go on like this. You can also make some useful toppings with nut butter, seeds, and sprinkle some yogurt as well.
#7: SWEET POTATO TOAST
Add some healthy slices in your toast, and boom! Your kids gonna surely like it. If you can sprinkle some cinnamon and nut butter with cream cheese on top, it will be fabulous. Cut them into shapes and feed them to your 1-year-old or 2-year-olds.
