Many mothers complain that their kids are not taking in enough vegetables and not are eating properly. However, with only minimal extra effort in food presentation coupled with a a little creativity, kids can easily be persuaded to eat healthier food.
Here are ten creative breakfast ideas that are easy to make that kids will love to eat!
1. Yogurt and Granola Parfait
Layering the ingredients in a pretty glass will make your kids think they’re eating dessert, not breakfast. They’ll get a much-needed dose of calcium and a big energy boost to start off their day.
2. Quick Sticky Buns
These sweet treats have a surprise topping—thinly sliced bananas, along with chopped pecans and melted brown sugar. It’s easy to create individual buns using a muffin tin and pre-sliced refrigerated biscuits.
3. Prosciutto and Egg Panini
There’s no need for fast-food breakfast sandwiches when you can prepare this upscale version in just 15 minutes. Your kids don’t like prosciutto? Substitute salami or ham instead.
4. Eggs With Ham, Cheddar, and Chives
Children will gobble up these not-quite-green eggs and ham. It’s much easier to put together than an omelet but packs in the same flavors.
5. Easy Chocolate Croissants
Yes, you can make croissants in just 20 minutes. You’ll only need five minutes to assemble them from refrigerated crescent rolls and chocolate chips before popping them in the oven to bake.
6. English-Muffin Egg Pizzas
These mini breakfast pizzas will soon become a family favorite. You can hard-cook eggs in advance and store them unpeeled in the refrigerator for a week, which will save plenty of precious time in the morning.
7. Farina With Apricots and Almonds
A refreshing change from a bowl of oatmeal, this warm, comforting dish is perfect on a cool morning. The sugar will melt as it comes into contact with the hot farina, creating a delicious syrup that kids will love.
8. Egg in a Hole With Berries and Yogurt
Kids will love this fun take on eggs and toast. Rounded out with yogurt and fruit, this breakfast is a well-balanced meal.
9. Bagel and Cream Cheese With Tomato and Cucumber
Liven up a boring breakfast by creating faces out of healthy ingredients. Better yet, give the little ones an assortment of vegetables and let them play with their food.
