Toddler Breakfast Ideas


    Do you like my posts? If you want to see more articles like this one, make sure you like my page on Facebook.   

    If your little one struggles with food allergies, than you know how difficult it can be to find food to make that is nutritious and somewhat diverse. Toddler P. currently is allergic to almonds and eggs, so this makes for difficult and/or limited breakfast options. As we are finding new foods that not only Toddler P. can eat but actually like, I thought I would share those ideas with you. 

    First option:
    • Van's gluten free waffles (1/2 slice). I usually buy either blueberry or original of this brand. These waffles have such healthy ingredients and as a plus, they are gluten free. Yes Toddler P. can eat gluten, but I still like giving her a variety of foods. 
    • 3 to 4 banana pieces.
    • 1 to 2 plum pieces
    • A handful of grapes (cut in half).
    • 1 apple slice (cut in half).
    • I give Toddler P. a small amount of puree still because at 15+ months she still only has 5 teeth.

    Second option: 
    • Homemade pancakes. I typically make a large batch of Bisquick Heart Healthy pancakes (made with apple sauce instead of egg), and then refrigerate the rest so I can reheat this for her breakfast and lunch.
    • A handful of grapes.
    • 2 to 3 cantaloupe pieces.
    • 2 to 3 banana pieces. 
    • 1 to 2 plum pieces.


        What do you make for breakfast for your children?

    3. We always did lots of mini muffins, dry bite-sized cereal, waffles, and lots and lots of fruit, very similar to what you have here. I loved the finger food stage because it was so much easier than spoon feeding!

      1. Thanks for the comment Summer! I feel like breakfast can be the hardest.. at least for me anyway. I think mostly because I'm still not awake, so my brain isn't working enough to figure out new ideas for meals :D
