Fun Breakfast for Kids

Are the kids back to school and looking for some easy (and maybe) fun ideas for breakfast?  Try this fun and healthy way to start the day!

Smile-Face Breakfast

  • 2 mini whole-wheat bagels with peanut butter or cream cheese (extra protein)
  • One berry
  • One banana
  • OJ, juice or milk to drink
  • Candles and a flower for a special touch (my kids love to watch the candles burn while they eat)

If you don't have mini-bagels, use toast cut into shapes with cookie cutters for the eyes.

And if you're on the run, the banana and bagels are easy to transport.

Now, there's a day off to a great start!

Substitute the bagels for a veggie omelette and THEN you have a healthy breakfast. There is nothing healthy about a bagel with cream cheese. This breakfast essentially breaks down to sugar and will leave a kid hungry again in no time. Even with peanut butter most peanut butters are loaded with extra sugar and peanut butter is not a source of complete protein.

Hi Sarah,
While I would love to add eggs to breakfast, they are not very portable and take time to prepare on school mornings. I beg to differ with you, this is a very healthy breakfast option. The bagels we mentioned are whole wheat/grain and kids need those carbohydrates to keep them going during the day. We do eat natural PB in our house (no sugars added) and I do agree with your comment that most 'popular' brands have too much sugar. The option of PB or cream cheese also adds a little extra diary or protein to the meal and is a better than just butter or margarine.
