My daughter just recently started refusing the baby oatmeal, and she doesn't eat cheerios anymore. She eats really good at other meals, but I'm not sure what to do for breakfast. I got some KIX, which she ate more than cheerios, but she's not too into it. Other ideas????

Yogurt with fruit and pancakes are always a hit in my house! Someone else posted about making a big batch of pancakes and freezing the extras - I do this and I can't tell you how many times it has saved me when I have a crying, starving baby!

My son likes eating adult oatmeal. They have a variety pack with banana bread, cinnamon roll and a few others. He also likes pop tarts, bananas, yogurt, and coco puffs. Another easy idea are the muffins. You just add milk and bake them. My son likes the blueberry and chocolate chip.

My little girl will have minute oats with a fruit (banana,pear,strawberry) or Weet Bix with a fruit. Some days I will give her a piece of multigrain bread with vegemite/peanut butter/honey/avocado and a piece of fruit cut into fingers. Normally on Sundays she has an egg and toast with us. She loves it. Now is the time to try different things as they eat most things we can, you just need to see what works for your little one.

Laci loves waffles, the frozen ones. I get the nutri-grain ones because then it has whole wheat. Also, whole wheat toast with butter and cinnamin, with fruit every morning. I just got a waffle maker so I'll make waffles one morning, pancakes, try eggs. Ham, LAci loves ham. Good luck.

wow these are great ideas! I have not tried the yogurt, however he does like scambled

eggs, plain pancake,waffle, cut up fruit, and baby puffed flavored wheat and rice bites!

he also likes his toast in tiny bits. He only has a singler tooth up now so he doesn't

chew on it yet.

Maddy is a carbo kid so loves frozen waffles and left over frozen pancakes. I try to get her to eat some protein so she now LOVES the brown and serve sausages. They don't have a casing so are very easy to chew. I microwave both those and the waffles since they got a little too crispy in the toaster/pan. I always offer her fruit like bananas and she loves the little fruit cups of peaches and pears and I recently tried the mandarin oranges and diced apples and those where a big hit too. I get them either in juice or light syrup to avoid too much sugar. When she was transitioning from baby cereals I tried mixing in the juices from those to the cereal and she loved it, particularly the pineapple juice. She would gobble it up. We have tried every kind of egg and the only kind she will always eat are soft boiled eggs and she loves to dunk her toast in them too!

Porridge! The best, healthiest breakfast you can give them. It's also a great way to get babies onto regular milk as you can start to mix it in instead of formula/breastmilk once they are a year old. Eggs are also great but try stay away from anything fried, too many bad fats.

Also FYI nutrigrain bars are FULL of sugar, not good.

Definitely try the regular oatmeal and not the baby stuff. I never gave Kian baby oatmeal but he's always liked the regular stuff and still eats it now. It's a great way to mix fruit in too. We do steel cut oats, which take a bit longer to cook, but are good. Now that he wants to spoon feed himself also, he loves the oatmeal even more b/c it's easy to scoop!

Our daughter has toast with vegimite or avacado and I have just tried her on egg bread which is really quick, easy and good for them. I love that I can use the last few pieces of bread in the loaf even if they are starting to go stale. I just combine one egg and a dribble of milk, whisk it really well, dunk the slice of bread in it and cook in the frying pan. Usually does 2-3 slices of bread so I get some too.

Good Luck :)

Try eggs. Dae will only eat omelet style not scrambled. My mother told me told me to try eggs with cottage cheese together. Dae didn't like it but she said I loved it as a baby. He also likes frozen waffles with butter no syrup. Fruit and bagels with butter.

Oh, and Nutrigrain bars as well - my daughter loves those.



Be careful with trying strawberries. I gave them to my daughter for the first time the other day and she got really bad diarreah and a VERY red, sore bum =( It was horrrible!! I think she is allergic to them.

For breakfast my daughter usually has either yogurt, 12 grain toast w/ a tiny bit of butter, a plain blueberry waffle, oatmeal (I just started giving her "normal" oatmeal, rather than the baby stuff because she would no longer eat it, She really likes the epaches and cream or apples and cinnomen), or just kind of a fruit salad. Usually if I'm giving her toast or waffles I also give her half a banana or some cheese cubes as well.

I just went through this with my baby girl. I actaully just tried regular fruit (strawberries and bannanas) cut up in little pieces, and she loved it. I am sure my daughter would like the english muffins and toast because she loved begals, but when ever I give her bread she chokes on it. So I do not give her bread anymore. However, my 6 year old loves the breakfast sandwiches (sasage, egg and cheese on croissant) that you get at the store (not mcdonalds, lol), and the baby will usually eat the egg and sasage out of it. Funny thing is, she will not eat the eggs that I make, still don't know why. I would stick to the fruit and a cup of milk in the morning!!!

I actually make banana mini pancakes with buckwheat mix and freeze the leftovers...they work out great. We have also done some cottage cheese along with some grain for breakfast. I have also done a scrambled egg bake...whatever you can think of to add in, I have used zucchini, tomatoes, cheese, and mushrooms. Good luck...we are just having fun exposing him to great healthy options for all meals.

These are great ideas! Thanks so much! I didn't realize she could have strawberries, and I don't know why I never thought to try pancakes/waffles/etc. Now the question is, which one do I try tomorrow morning? :-P

My son loves the Nutrigrain Cereal Bars. He is also into pancakes, waffles, fruit, eggs, and toast.

I like Heather's ideas. My daughter loves blueberries. Plus, how about scrambled eggs? They can have eggs once they've past a year old.

Anna loves blueberries, cut strawberries, any other kind of berries really. She also loves the baby yogurt (some come mixed with cereal). She will also eat wheat toast with butter or english muffin with butter.
