Do you want creative and healthy breakfast ideas for your kids? Want to think outside the box and ditch breakfast cereals? Then, these 5 Incredibly Easy Non-Cereal Healthy Breakfast Ideas Your Kids Will Love will blow your mind!
Healthy Breakfast Ideas That Are Not Cereal
Breakfast is really the most important meal of the day. After a full night sleep, your kids’ body is craving some fuel. Give them the right “fuel” offering nutritious and healthy breakfast options. Show your kids how important it is to face the day only after refueling the brain and body with a healthy morning meal.
Just like adults, children become very bored with food if they are having the same thing day in and day out! Be creative and offer them variety! Fun food is really the best way in my opinion to get kids to try new flavors. You can also “hide” vegetables for picky eaters.

Muffins are just perfect for breakfast because they are super easy to make, kids get excited to eat them, and you can “hide” nutritious ingredients. You can make sweet or salty versions like my Grain Free Zucchini And Carrot Muffins, and Egg Muffins recipes. The good thing is also you can make a big batch and freeze for later. Yum!
