Toddler breakfast ideas

By Trish Stratus
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that is especially true for your young ones. Trish shares how to make breakfast time fun with these cute ideas.

CUTE CUT-OUTS!

Keep your kiddies interested and excited about their meal with fun shapes!



Shooting star french toast:
  • Use a cookie cutter to press out preferred shape on a piece of bread
  • Beat eggs and then soak bread pieces in egg mixture
  • Grill bread pieces on a greased pan (we use butter or coconut oil)
  • Put maple syrup on the side in a little dish to encourage dipping

I found this cute little heart shaped frying pan on Amazon, I use it to make mini omelettes or add pancake batter to add some love to breakfast!




FINGER FOOD FUN!

Making fun finger food helps encourage eating independence and dexterity in little toddler hands. It's especially great for the pre-fork and spoon stage, but really, finger food breakfast is fun at any stage!



Egg roll:
  • Beat 2 eggs
  • Use a large* greased (we use butter or coconut oil) frying pan
  • Pour beat egg mixture into frying pan at medium to medium low heat
  • Once bottom gets firm, flip and fry other side for a couple minutes
  • Transfer to a plate to cool down before serving

Once the egg has cooled down, get your toddler to help you roll it up, this is a skill that will come along with practice (Max learned how to roll a Montessori, it is one of the basic skills they encourage for development).

*make sure you use a large frying pan to ensure the egg stays thin, just slightly thicker than a crepe, so they can roll it.

French Toast sticks:
  • Beat eggs and add a sprinkle of cinnamon to mixture
  • Soak bread pieces in egg mixture
  • Grill bread pieces on a greased pan (we use butter or coconut oil)
  • Put maple syrup on the side in a little dish to encourage dipping

Cut the french toast into strips to make it easy to handle for little toddler hands and mouths.
