What's for breakfast?

I'm still feeding my son baby/toddler cereal mixed with fruits and milk for breakfast. I figured that's a good way to sneak in some major loads of fruits. As he's approaching two, I begin to think if he's getting too old for that. I would appreciate if the moms can share nutritional and not-so-time-consuming breakfast ideas. Thanks!

Hey there fellow mom :0) I feed my almost 2 year old yogurt and a whole grain waffle or whole grain pancake. He also likes bagels with cream cheese. He always has yogurt, but then also a grain of some kind. He likes to "help" get his breakfast ready by putting the "wahwools" in the toaster. I also include whole fruit cut up some mornings. he LOVES it!

My almost 2yr olds appetite varies. Sometimes a banana, toasted pancake/waffle, yogurt, oatmeal or a cheese omlette. At this age the kids can eat just about everything we can with the excwption of how many teeth they have.

My daughter loves Eggs and grits, oatmeal, french toast cut into sticks. The best thing about grits is you can get the original unflavored and add a lil jelly or some cheese. Whatever you feel like. She also likes breakfast bars and absolutely Yogurt. She eats my bagel with me when I eat it. AND occasionally, because she has an 8 year old sister who's influence is GOLD.. she eats poptarts.

With my 2 year old she loves rice krispies, cheerios, and kix. She also loves eggs with cheese and mustard. The mustard she gets from her Father lol. Just try some stuff a little bit at a time and see what he likes.

My son started eating whatever we will eat at 9 months old. He flat out refused to eat babyfood one day and still does. He refuses the lil toddler meals that Gerber makes and honestly I don't blame him, they are gross have you tasted it? My son eats ANY kind of fruit you want to give him, especially melons (watermelon, Cantelope, Honeydew) Or strawberries, pears, apples, bananas, grapes, pineapple. He loves them all. Typically he eats 2 pieces of lightly buttered toast every morning along with milk, when he gets tired of that we mix it up and give him cereal or waffles or whatever we have. He is a big eater. His favorite protien source is SHRIMP and has been since he was 8-9 months old. He also loves chicken and Steak used to be a favorite but now he is being really picky about that right now. He loves veggies too. My only recomendation is dont get them used to alot of junk food.

With a 2, 4, and 6 yr. old, and both of us working full-time, we have had to work on finding quick but healthy breakfast options...our favs are yogurt w/ cheerios mixed in, whole wheat waffles w/ spray butter and sprinkles (cut and put in a cup), frozen pancakes put in toaster (my 2 yr. old walks around w/ it and eats it plain), dry cereal w/ raisins/dried fruit in a cup, hard-boiled eggs, pieces of soft granola bars, and pieces of string cheese w/ a cookie cutter shape (or strips) of whole wheat dry toast. We save the oatmeal and scrambled eggs for weekends!

Me and my family are quite alternative and so my ideas may sound quite different. We chose to eat dairy free, gluten free and sugar free for the most part. For our breakfasts I will toss a couple of eggs in a frying pan using coconut oil (which is tasteless and odourless) with chopped up asparagus or broccoli and diced onion. Sometimes I'll bake it too. Great calcium in that and the kids love it with a bit of ketchup. I'll also make creamy hot quinoa, amaranth (great protein) or rice cereal made with unsweetened organic almond milk mixed with blackberries & blueberries. I go easy on fruits and veggies that are high on the hypoglycaemic index (high in sugars). What's nice about the hot cereals is that you can make a nice big batch and it's great for a good 3 days and all you have to do is throw some fresh berries in and warm it up on the stove. My most quick and easy breakfast is rice bread toasted with raw almond butter and sometimes I'll add raw honey or mash some fresh strawberries to go on top once in a while for a treat.

my daughter loves toast (or toasted english muffin) with cheese and jam (which I think is gross but she's the one eating it so w/e) and she loves waffles and pancakes....not big on eggs....she also eats any kind of dry cereal and occasionally oatmeal. also a cup of milk every morning. My daughter has been eating all the thinks we eat for a long time.

Anything that we eat, your child can most likely eat as well! My son loves regular cereal with milk! Oatmeal, eggs, french toast sticks, nutragrain bars, pancakes, fruit, applesauce, muffins, toast with jelly, etc!!!

My daughter eats enough to feed a trucker so a typical breakfast would be a bowl of cold cereal, a piece of fruit, some yogurt, a piece of toast and I have to bribe her to get out of her booster seat with some dry cheerios. Sometimes she'll also eat scrambled eggs with cheese or an omelet with veggies, pancakes, bagels, english muffins, fruit salad, or apple sauce. Hope this helps!

My kid eats whatever we do for breakfast. Mainly scrambles, pancakes.. Sometimes it will served up a little differently.. Once I made breakfast burritos and she got the makings and the tortilla on the side. But it's just the same stuff we have.

My daughter has a wide palate. Like Megan and Katharine kids she loves eggs usually scrambled. Pour a little cream in it a dash of salt and mix reall well then scrambles. Here in the Bahamas we eat grits for breakfast she loves it with eggs. Also try oats. Put a cap full of vanilla and a dash of cinamion and a handfull of rasians. She alos loves pancakes, french toast, yogurt sauges, furit and more. Good Luck.

I normally feed my son a small bowl of fruit for breakfast (berries, banana, grapes, etc) as well as a cereal bar and a minigo yogurt. He loves it!

My son doesn't like eggs, I think they are hit or miss with many tots. He does like apple sauce, yogurt, and dry cereal. Some days I will give him a piece of bread with his apple sauce (he likes to dunk it) or a waffle or pancake.

I always give him the choice of what he wants to eat. Some days (rarely, but sometimes) he doesn't want a breakfast food. I will ask him what he wants and he will say pb jelly, or chicken, or rice. I figure, as long as its healthy, who cares when he eats it.

Another good idea is nutra-grain bars (or the store generic of a fruit and cereal bar). My son also likes those, and if you are in a rush, you can give it to them in the car.

Eggs, oatmeal, french toast, pancakes......They only take a few minutes to make. My daughter LOVES eggs. I sprinkle some cheese in and she gobbles it up.
