As a homeschool mom, I don’t really have the pressure of getting everyone out the door by a certain time, but I do still have to make my children breakfast! While some days are obviously easier than others and my kids choose to just eat some milky cereal. Most of the time they don’t want to be eating cereal every day! Here are my go-to super simple breakfast ideas that my children absolutely love!
Toast and cut up fruit – While lots of people think of toast as a breakfast sometimes we forget that pairing it with something else can make it that much better. I personally like to add some things on top of my toast but my kids find that too exciting and like some cut fruit in a bowl beside.
Waffles and yogurt – Again, these things are separate items just eaten at the same time. We usually buy the kind of waffles that you just pop in the toaster. The kids really like the cinnamon flavoured ones.
Yogurt and fruit – My kids don’t like the kind of yogurt with the fruit chunks in them so I tend to get the super plain yogurt and then just give them fruit on the side.
Eggs and toast – This is super simple but is nice when the kids want something that isn’t cold. Plus, if I’m feeling particularly fancy I can do a chick in the nest or whatever you call them when you put the eggs in the middle of the toast.
Sausage cut up with toast – My kids aren’t really fans of huge breakfasts so I tend to do little bits and pieces of what other people commonly eat for their breakfasts. Also, I find if I cut up the toast into quarters my daughter likes it a lot more.
Meat and cheese sandwich – While this wouldn’t seem like the normal breakfast food to you my son absolutely loves a good meat and cheese sandwich and he isn’t picky about what time he’s eating it! Kids are a bit strange that way!
Pancakes and bacon – Very traditional, yet very yummy breakfast. One tip I have is that if you want thinner pancakes, we like those, use a hand mixer on high to mix your pancake batter!
Peanut butter and honey wrap with a banana – These are super easy to take with us when we have an early morning and we are needing to eat breakfast in the car. Honestly, though we like these any time!
Smoothie – This is especially popular in the summertime. I would highly recommend getting some powdered peanut butter and dates to through in there, so yummy! Our go-to smoothie is banana, strawberries, almond milk, powder peanut butter, and dates, SO GOOD!
Cream of wheat – My son really isn’t a fan of this one but my daughter and I eat cream of wheat all the time! We get the big boxes that you make in a pot but you can also get the single serving packs, we sometimes get those when we go camping.
