I am basically against serving "sweet" breakfasts. Pancakes, waffels, anything with syrup. Just yet. Its very easy to get babies this age hooked on the the sweet taste. For this age I would try so many things actually. Eggs, scrambled, boiled, with little butter. My 15 month loves it. Try toast with creme cheese, cereal. Oatmeal. Dont limit yourself to one thing!!

mine is such a funny eater at every meal... she won't eat fruit unless it's pureed and served on a spoon so I will do that with some mixed grain cereal (blend up a banana with another fruit) yogurt is also a great breakfast food and I will add some oatmeal to it to thinken up... I'm hoping mine will be more willing to feed herself but right now all she wants to feed herself are grains such as muffins, puffs, pretzels, cereal bars, etc so I still have to puree and feed her the veggies and fruits. Hope this is helpful

Mine is the same way - breakfast is the worst!!! So, since my son likes to eat like a "grown up", I just let him have what he can pick up with his fingers: grapes, pieces of cheese, crackers, little cubes of apples, tomatoes, or cucumbers. I try to give him at least 4 different types of food, so I can see what he likes better that morning, so I can give him more of it, and be happy that he eats :)

I give him whatever I'm eating. This is usually toast with laughing cow cheese, oatmeal (he has baby oatmeal as he prefers it to regular), sometimes pancakes or cereal. He doesn't much like dry cereal anymore, but I give him spoons of mine while I eat. That he likes.

You can try Nutella spread on wheat bread or a whole grain waffle. My 15 month old daughter loves it, and so does my 5 year old son. It is a hazelnut spread with skim milk and cocoa. It takes mostly like chocolate but with a nutty taste, but is very healthy because it is made up of hazelnuts. It's great as long as your daughter is not allergic to chocolate. Kids love it! My daughter also eats bananas, waffles, cranberry apple bread, cereal bars, granola bars, oatmeal, applesauce, yogurt, french toast sticks, scrambled eggs, whole grain waffles with light cream cheese spread on it, and pancakes. I hope this helps!!

You could try toast with butter, cut up eggos, apple/pear/banana slices, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, clementines cut in half, I usually start my daughter off with a smoothie in a sippy cup if she's having a picky day. If ur child will still eat puréed food u could keep trying apple sauce or pear purée. Also baby mum mums are good too. Or arrow root cookies. Kids that age can eat lots of different things

Scrabbled or hard boiled egg, rice cake with hummus, 1 slice whole grain toast with either pb, jam, or cheezewhiz, fruit crisp cracker-like things topped with a little organic cocoa spread, sometimes homemade oatmeal with berries, pancakes or french toast from scratch, perogies, hash browns, homemade banana bread, frittata, cut up fruit on the side of whatever he has, water or milk offered.

Scrambled eggs, banana, oatmeal, organic yogurt, granola bar or cheese. Polenta is a good option for any meal. She loves tofu too. She's not a fan of pancakes or waffles. After Thanksgiving I gave her scrambled eggs mashed in with leftover stuffing and she loved it!
My 15 month old daughter still has a bottle of whole milk when she gets up, so she usually has breakfast later if at all - she's not a good breakfast eater. Usually I try to make scrambled eggs with cheese, toast, grapes, cantaloupe - normal adult breakfast foods just cut up. Sometimes giving her a waffle or a breakfast bar in the car works...

Weekdays when both me and hubby go to work mine gets oatmeal with fruit - its fast and easy for me to make so we can all get out the door on time. Weekends I'll vary what we have from coffee cake, french toast with cinnamon, pancakes or waffles. Mine's not that picky of an eater (unless teething.)

I have a stock of waffles, pancakes and french toast sticks (all prepackaged) on hand because morning I am to lazy and don't feel like cooking. I also give oatmeal (instant or otherwise) My son really likes to feed himself so he prefers the waffles and pancakes. But I switch between the four so that it doesn't get boring. My son will not eat eggs, so that is not an option for us. Also when we make pancakes, oatmeal and waffles from scratch he loves those also.

My 15 month old wont eat anything he can't feed himself so he eats honey toast, pancakes, multigrain Cheerios with just a lil milk, any fruit cut up, scrambled eggs but he likes salsa and cheese on them, muffins, toaster struddles, poptarts he will eat just about anything
My 15 month old tends to enjoy eating with her fingers mostly, but is attempting to master the art of feeding herself with a spoon. I give her 1 fruit (applesauce or canned pears, peaches, or mandarine oranges), 1 starch (1 slice of french toast, 1 slice of dry toast, 1 serving of oatmeal, or 1 serving of dry cereal), and 1 cup of milk. I also make sure that all of the breads and cereals my child eats are whole grains. It keeps her full longer and prevents her from getting constipated. (Btw, they sell plain oatmeal in the small packets, so you don't have to worry about measuring or anything.)

After her milk, i usually give her a couple of biscuits that melt in the mouth, such as baby bites..or some crunchy banana soft cookies for her teething exercise also she could hold it in her hand..and she loves it so much..

Mashed banana with natural yoghurt and weet-bix crushed up (you can put a bit of water/milk/formula in if it's too stiff) is what I feed my little one. Or some fruit in his hands and the cereal separately. Toast with vegimite, avocado, tahini or hummus also goes down well. Scrambled eggs are also good!

My 15 month old will have mini pancakes (plain) and fruit, or oatmeal, or scrambled eggs with a lightly buttered cut up piece of toast. She will also have some whole milk. Hope this helps. You could also try yogurt and add in the baby cereal.

My 15 mo twins eat just about anything for breakfast and seems that is the meal that they eat best- pancakes. eggo waffles,or french toast- turkey sausage and always some fruit because they love almost every fruit especially blueberries. They also love scrambled eggs which I usually add some chopped fresh spinach and a little shredded cheese. They aren't wanting many veggies right now so I sneak in the spinach. they love it!

My son is also a picky 15 month old when it comes to eating. So breakfast is the same every day. An Eggo, a yogurt and a banana. The only way I can get vegetables into him is to give them to him pureed still. Like many others have said...he likes anything starchy, like bread, muffins, eggos, etc. I will have to try hiding some other foods in those!

My 15month old daughter LOVES this.
I take a 10 ounce sippy cup (or bottle) and put one jar of stage 2 fruit or veggie in it, fill the jar with water and shake it to get all the good stuff out and then add the water to the cup. Add one serving of cereal flakes ( I change it up between the oatmeal, rice, whole wheat and barly) then fill to top with 100% fruit or veggie juice and shake well.
So in this one 10 ounce bottle you got a serving of grain, a serving of real fruit or veggie and a half of a serving of real juice and water. If that's not a good breakfast I don't know what is :)
This is also great for on the go moms, which is how i came up with it. Hope this helps you too :)
Well since my son likes to feed himself, I give him food that he can do just that.... without making the biggest mess ever. :) He loves pancakes, fruit, cereal (cheerios - especially the chocolate and the fruit varieties, frosted shredded wheat), granola and fruit & grain bars, buttered bread/toast, tater tots, eggs,..... basically, if I'm eating it, he wants to try some, too.

my son has trouble eating too, he has problems with texture and would gag and throw up. So I've had to introduce things slowly and still feed him baby food. I have this weird idea stuck inside my head that you eat fruit for breakfast and vegetables after, so that being said I always give him a fruit baby food if he's eating that. But I also add in oatmeal sometimes. He's really is starting to like the graduates fruit strips if I break them intl little bite size pieces. He will eat toast and butter again broken into little pieces. My mom likes to give him little pieces of doughnut. I have given him eggs too . He's doing a lot better with food actually so I try to give him the same as my 3 year old but somedays that doesn't happen.

My son LOVES fruit so I give him a bite size pieces of a fruit or bowl of berries, grapes, etc. along with a bowl of cheerios, toast with peanut butter, a bowl of oatmeal, OR sometimes a waffle, and a yogurt if he is still hungry. He doesn't eat eggs for some reason.

We have pancakes, french toast, waffles or oatmeal. I usually mix a little something in the oatmeal, like yogurt or applesauce or mashed bananas. Then she has a yogurt cup and fruit. As a shortcut, I use frozen mini pancakes, waffles and french toast. I just take out a couple pop then in the microwave or toaster and breakfast is ready fast! I have not tried eggs yet. She also like cheerios, but I just give them to her dry to eat with her fingers.

My son only likes certain things for breakfast. He loves bananas, oranges, and strawberries. He likes toast, but only if it is cinnamon toast. He likes scrambled eggs sometimes, but he really likes a fried egg if it is fried in a little bit of butter. He loves homemade pancakes, and anything with cinnamon flavor. I just alternate these things on different days. He just turned fifteen months yesterday.

I just recently made a batch of oatmeal muffins w/ "hidden" shredded carrots b/c my 15 month old refuses to eat veggies. He loves anything starchy, like bread, muffins, etc, so I knew I could trick him into eating veggies. For breakfast he usually gets some sort of bread, like toast (w/ peanut butter or just butter), muffin, pancake, eggo waffle, croissant, etc and always some sort of fruit. Sometimes I'll still give him the rice oatmeal mixed w/ fruit/veggie juice. I also give him yogurt or apple sauce sometimes, but he insists on feeding these things to himself w/ a spoon and he gets VERY messy. Another thing is dry cereal, like cheerios or Quaker Oat Squares (something w/ nutrional value). My husband accidentally discovered my son likes graham crackers w/ peanut butter on them, so that's another favorite weekend breakfast treat.

My son eats a waffle, or pancakes, or french toast sticks, something that I can prepare quickly and always always has fruit with breakfast. I usually buy those fruit cups and he will eat one with his breakfast (2 servings of fruit in 1 cup for toddlers :) )
