Why is breakfast important for kids?
Kids have really busy little lifestyles and are always on the go – heading off to school for the day without eating anything just wouldn’t be good.
I know my kids need to eat breakfast otherwise it definitely shows in their behaviour – they’re less able to concentrate, they’re more tired and lethargic and much more irritable.
Eating breakfast boosts their energy and gives them nutrients that they’d otherwise just miss out on.
So I do always make them breakfast, even my picky eater who often eats breakfast on the walk to school!
Breakfast Recipes for Kids
Wise Owl Toast – Healthy Kids Breakfast Recipe
Start the week off right with our gorgeous super cute owl toast.
Kids just love this sweet little breakfast, I mean who wouldn’t want owl shaped toast… right?
This is such a simple healthy breakfast to make, it literally takes less than 5 minutes!
Simply grab an English breakfast muffin, split and toasted and then spread with peanut butter. Then decorate it with fruit to create the little owl.
It’s a healthy, slow burning, protein and vitamin packed breakfast the kids will love.
Breakfast Muffins with Apples and Oats
Given the chance, everyone loves cake for breakfast!
Our delicious moist fruit packed muffins topped with wholesome oats are super easy to make and bake.
And they’re totally delicious to eat still warm from the oven with a glass of milk.
The muffins only take 30 minutes to make and bake from scratch. I usually grab a shower and get dressed whilst they bake.
I serve these with a glass of ice cold milk.
Eggy Bread Stars with Ketchup Dip – Kids Breakfast Ideas
This breakfast is always a big hit at our house – I mean what’s not to love about French toast dipped in ketchup???
And well star shaped ANYTHING is always a good thing… right?
Our yummy eggy bread stars take just minutes to make and I promise you they’ll be a hit with the kids.
You can swap and change the dip to whichever you prefer, we love either ketchup or a drizzle of maple syrup.
Cereal Sundae – Kids Breakfast Idea
Almost like an ice-cream sundae but way, way healthier!
Layers of cereal, yogurt and fresh berries make this breakfast irresistible, for a little added treat try a layer of custard in amongst the cereal.
And of course you can make cereal sundaes with any cereal your kids like – my older kids like muesli but the younger one will only eat these with Cheerios or Rice Krispies.
You can also pack these into little plastic food storage boxes and eat on the go or as a snack in a packed lunch.
The good thing about cereal sundaes is the boost of vitamins and minerals that fortified cereals contain.

A warming bowl of porridge always makes for a good, hearty, healthy breakfast for kids, but it can be dull!
