Since childhood, we’ve always been taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Outside of the assumed health benefits, there’s nothing like waking up to the smell of mom or dad working the stove and starting the day off with a full stomach. For the third addition of this summer food series we are focusing on delicious meals for breakfast time. I will be the first to admit that I might skip breakfast here and there, especially during the busy work week, but I am working on being a better example for my little one by making breakfast a priority in our household.
As I have mentioned before, my 18 month old can be a very picky eater and is not a fan of trying new foods. When she first started eating table food, she loved to pick at my scrambled eggs so much that sometimes I would barely have any left for myself! However, she currently despises eggs and expects to have Greek yogurt or mandarin oranges every morning for breakfast. Although these items can be good for her, I prefer for her to have a more diverse pallet to accommodate other healthier foods. So this momma has been doing a lot of recipe research to find healthy but tasty meals to adapt to her stubborn but still changing tastes. After talking to a few other experienced moms and searching Pinterest for ideas, I have created a list of breakfast recipes that will make even the pickiest eater happy.
Banana Blueberry Parfait
Breakfast Yogurt Banana Splits
Muffin Tin Omelets
Watermelon and Berry Fruit Salad
French Toast Sticks
Sweet Potato Hash Browns
Scrambled Eggs with Ham
Cheddar Mini Pancakes
Oatmeal with Fruit
Tie Dye Waffles
I hope these recipes make breakfast time a little more fun and enjoyable for you and your children. Always remember, recipes can be modified and I for one believe in making meals cater to your little ones. As a parent, you know what your child likes or dislikes - so keep that in mind when planning their meals. I have recently discovered that introducing new food items with a food your child already likes seems to work a little better than serving it to them solo.
So make your next breakfast healthy and memorable for the whole family. All recipes can be found on my Pinterest board.
