What does your 1 year old eat for breakfast?
Ashlee - posted on 11/13/2009
with our son it depends on who feeds him breakfast if mommy does it its usually cheese whiz toast and fruit or cheerios or shreddies. if daddy does breakfast its waffles and strawberries or a nutri-grain bar (the adult ones not the kid ones, the toddler ones are way too dry and don't have enough filling.)
he also likes french toast, he has had eggs but he's not the hugest fan. he also gets a sippy of diluted juice before and with breakfast and 6-8 oz of whole milk after breakfast.
My son loves yogurt (we use the yo-baby yogurt), bananas, oatmeal, peaches, pears, applesauce, scrambled eggs, toast and a bunch of other things. When I cook breakfast on the weekends for the three of us he will eat whatever i make. he loves pancakes (no syrup though), waffles, omlets-he eats the meat and all the vegetables in there too. I try to mix it up every morning so he doesn't have the same things all the time. My son isn't really a picky eater yet so that helps out too.

My little man likes his weetbix and yoghurt for breaky or fruit or toast, but reading this now I am going to try scrambled eggs. I came in here to try and find other things for him to try and it has been so helpful, so, thanks everyone you have been a big help:)

My son loves bananas, it's usually gone in minutes, I break it up into six peices. I usually do pb toast cut into quarters, yogurt melts, and a banana. Sometimes to change it up I do a cereal bar instead of toast and sometimes I do dry cereal (either honey nut cheerios or fruit loops). I have a hard time with regular yogurt because my son loves to feed himself so the Gerber yogurt melts are an easy solution.

My daughter likes eggs, pancakes, toast with butter, dry cereal (cherrios, fruit loops etc) and I also buy her gerber good morning stage 3 baby food jars.
They also have gerber grad cereal bars, I'll give her one of those with a jar of bananas
My son eats whole wheat toasts with cream cheese with a fruit or scrambled eggs with cheese on top, pancakes, waffles, ...Sometimes on weekends he gets a chocolate oatmeal cereal. He loves to have fruits and cheerios dumped in yogurt... he eats pretty much anything we do

My daughter loves scrambled eggs. I think its great because its so fast and easy to make, you can add whatever you want into them and she can eat the scrambles with her fingers. I also give her a piece of toast. Usually just buttered, but I sometimes will add jam, some cinnamon, nutella or something else.
She eats other things too, but eggs are her favorite.

When you ladies are feeding your kids eggs. Do they get egg whites and yolks?? Just wondering as my Dr told me to give my son just the egg yolk.
I think its probably fine to give the whole egg at this point. I also read that as well but my ped suggested scrambled eggs at their 6 month. I've been giving it since then with no problems. I think most peds or books suggest you wait because of a possible allergy. The shots they get at 1 year have egg white in them so they assume if they have a reaction then they are allergic. I would just check with doc if you have food allergies in the family.

My son has weetabix with milk and banana or apple or some kind of fruit, some days he has different flavoured porridge or he has toast. Me and my partner aren't really breakfast people so it's only my son that ever has anything! lol!
Oatmeal with some whole fat fruit yogurt mixed in and eggs with cheese are a big fave in my house. Also loved: biscuits, toast, french toast, pancakes, waffles. Haven't done much breakfast meats as they tend to be so very astronomically high in salt and toddler kidneys can't handle too much of it.
We usually have a sippy cup of lactose free milk, too. Milk and yogurt are the only two every single day foods in our house, everything else changes and shifts like the moon, those two are constants. Both of my kids are highly lactose intolerant, so I do what I can to make sure they get good doses of calcium in their diet. Yogurt is one of the few dairy foods that even most lactose intolerant people can eat, and lactose free milk was suggested by the pediatrician.

My daughter eats breakfast during the week at daycare and they feed them biscuits, pancakes, eggs, grits.. etc. On the weekends at home, we feed her pop tarts, honeybuns, white powdered donuts, or whatever we are eating usually.

My son has a cup of milk and a small bowl of dry cheerios when he first wakes up. Then about an hour later I either make him oatmeal with some fruit on the side or we'll have scrambled eggs with either french toast or blueberry pancakes.

My little man refuses to let us feed him anymore, so his breakfast is all foods he can feed himself that won't make a huge mess. Dry cheerios, cereal bars, banana spears, and the ultimate toddler food -- fruit cocktail! (in pear juice not the corn syrup) He loves the perfect bite sized pieces of the fruit cocktail and one can of it is less expensive than the baby food jars of chunk fruit, plus one can lasts him 3 or 4 meals. We are ot breakfast people in my family so we save the eggs, sausage, pancakes, and such for Brinner nights. But he digs into all of those easily as well (though you do have to cook the bacon enough that it isn't floppy or he tries to suck down huge chunks of it without chewing.)

My daughter loves eggs... I make quiche in bulk and we have that for breakfast. Egg, potato, veggie skillet. Oatmeal & fruit. Scrambled eggs and veggies. French toast (minus the syrup!). I try to give her whatever I am eating. It helps her try a variet of foods and it also keep me accountable with my own meals and making sure they are balanced!

hope that helps!!
