Clean Eating Kids Quick Breakfast Ideas
I am not great at getting up early.
I’m more of a hit the snooze button a couple of times morning person. I try. I really do, but once I get the kids into bed at night, it’s too tempting to enjoy the peace and quiet by staying up a little later than I should.
This little indulgence hits me hard in the morning.
But on the up side? My lazy morning nature means I have busy weekday mornings organised to a fine tuned art. My routine is broken down to the minute. It drives my husband crazy because there is no room for error. This routine includes pulling together some fast, healthy breakfast options for my family.
Over the years I’ve managed to get some quick breakfast ideas for kids perfected. And these are some of my families favorites.
What Should Kids Eat First Thing In The Morning?
Eating a healthy, nutrient rich breakfast will improve your performance, increase your energy levels and keep you and your kids from over-eating or reaching for unhealthy mid morning snacks.
It’s a habit that our kids should learn early to maintain a healthy lifestyle later on.
Pre Cleaning Eating, I would have a stash of cereals lined up in the cupboard. Breakfasts were sugar coated and the only thing I worried about was whether the milk was sour.
We went through quite a few trial and error weeks trying to find fast and easy breakfasts that everyone in the house wanted to eat. The kids were still missing chocolate coated crispy cereals, so I had some tough critics.
And I didn’t want to spend all morning in the kitchen preparing breakfast either so we got off to bit of a rocky start.
These days Breakfast in our home has had a makeover. Once you put together a Master list of some of your family’s favourite breakfast options, Clean Eating at breakfast time’s a breeze.
To save you a little time and loads of wasted food, here are our top Clean eating healthy breakfasts that we like to eat during the week.
Quick Breakfast Ideas For Kids Before School
My kids love honey, they really do: It’s sweet sticky and makes everything better. This Oatmeal with honey recipe is so simple. It’s a classic wholesome breakfast or pudding, it’s delicious and it’s really filling.
If I let them, my kids would use a pot per sitting and so I limit the honey intake to one teaspoon. Admittedly, it’s a heaped teaspoon but it’s a teaspoon none the less :)
Breakfast smoothies are such a delightful way to kickstart the kids day. They’re packed with nutrients from fruits, veggies and proteins, providing energy which helps little tummies stay full.
They’re super versatile, pretty much anything goes: It won’t take long to find your favorites. On-the-go? No problem! Smoothies are portable which makes they super perfect for those running to the bus and eating breakfast kinda mornings.
I use my trusted blender for these, super easy to clean and powerful. Here’s to a vibrant, smoothie-filled morning :)
I’ve got a little obsession with these at the moment.
They are delicious but they do need to be prepared the night before. It takes all of 30 seconds to prepare them.
For my blog I have individual pots prepared but in Real life, its not that pretty. I make up one large jar and everyone just spoons a helping out of it.
This is my substitute for the cereal we used to buy in-store. No, it’s not the same: It’s better!
I keep a basic granola mixture in my pantry which we eat instead of cereal. It’s always ready to go and packed with oats, seeds and nuts.
These healthy oatmeal date bars are sweet and sticky and just perfect for kids breakfasts on the go. You can make them ahead of time in batches, they last for a while and so if you’ve got a packed week coming up, get these made!
We have a little family of backyard chickens, so our 6 feathered ladies provide us with an abundance of eggs on a daily basis. Boiled, Scrambled or whipped into an omelette, Eggs play a big part at breakfast time.
I wasn’t sure whether to include these in my list as technically they aren’t fast because they need to be made ahead. However, once you master the basic breakfast muffin, it’s worth having a batch of them in your freezer at all times.
Wholemeal Toast with Peanut Butter
There are a lot of healthy breads on the market. I look for clean ingredients, with plenty of whole-grains and seeds. If your family is used to eating white bread then this will be a bit of a shock to them. Start by serving it toasted. It’s surprising how quickly they adjust to the change.
