I am super lucky to have a little girl who loves and I mean LOVES everything! :o) For breakfast she'll have french toast, pancakes, scambled eggs, toast, oatmeal sometimes I mix it with motts summer strawberries applesauce (the instant packet one prepared to directions), muffins, cereals (cheerios and rice krispies are a fav.) cereal bars, cream of wheat, hashbrowns, english muffins, banana bread, the list could continue. Hopefully there is something on here you have yet to try and your lil' one will love! :o)

Thinking... Okay, for the regular oatmeal, cook it, just as you would regularly, but reduce the amount by 25%. Then simmer a little bit longer.

As for getting enough protein in the morning, try an apple with peanut butter, or see if Kashi makes a cooked cereal. There are 3 adult cereals that have enough protein per serving as an egg, and it's healthy. If no cooked versions are available, just get the regular kind, put milk in, blend, and soak about 5 minutes, and it should be fine.

Yes it should be good enough for her......bananas are sweet and so is honey and they are both good for her. I don't give my little one flavored oatmeal as there are alot of sucrose in it which is really not good for you. I always try my best to avoid this and give her natural sugars so she has lots of mangoes and bananas and whenever i can i drizzle a little honey. :)

My son is a VERY picker eater and will not eat the same type of foods on a regular basis, so i CONSTANTLY have to change routine or invent new ways of introducing him to the SAME food groups! hahah
here is a simple breakfest plan:

i toast (real lightly) a whole grain bread and spread some jam on it (cut them into small square pieces). One slice of turkey bacon ( a really healthy alternative to regular porc fat filled, sodium packed bacon), cut apple pieces (peeled and every day i switch between cutting them round, sqaure, long ways, etc), cubed beef hotdogs (instead of breakfest sausages that contain a lot of fat), SOMETIMES he will have a yogurt but it all depends on his mood. HE LOves his fruitsations fruit cups (any flavor, choose a brand with the least amount of sugar)

My son HATED oatmeal, so we altogether threw that out the window, but it didnt stop me from trying to add things to it, that he loved to make him eat it (which still didnt work)

You can use blueberries, blackberries or strawberries, banana's. You can even use JAM instead of the actual fruit. You can add the cubed hotdogs make it like a heart oatmeal.

hahaha i have no idea, there is so many variations, it just depends on what you child likes!!

typical breakfast for my lil guy include tomatoes or cucumber, fruit, and either eggs, cinamon raisin toast, pancakes, french toast, waffles or bagel. French toast, pancakes and waffles, he eats dry, bagels he gets a little bit of cream cheese

You can use blueberry or strawberry in waffles or pancakes so you dont have to use syrup. Toast :) I also buy Toaster Scrambles they are like Toaster Stroudels but have eggs and cheese and potatoes in them. My son LOVES them. I also make sure to give him 1 serving of fruit for breakfast also :) Apple Sauce is a favorite. For any meal of the day I try to give my son three different things on his plate.

my daughter is into cerael and milk these days any cereal we have in the cupboard, before that it was eggs, she varies in stages she also loves any fruit as well...we even went through a stage of only being willing to eat popcorn for breakfast but we curbed that one.

My boys have something (cereal, rusk, pasta, bread, etc.) with butter and white cheese. Sometimes they have yogurt and cake or cookies, sometimes toast with Gouda or other yellow cheese. In short, as in the beginning I give them a combination of milk and cereals of any kind. Less possible sugar.
About oatmeal, I think they are pretty fine and don't need to soak overnight, but about half-1 hour is well enough to make the water-soluble ingredients easier to assimilate.
