It’s Breakfast Week, so what better time to rethink and revamp your usual breakfast routine? We’ve rounded up 7 Kid-Friendly Breakfasts including a range of healthy options – some are gluten-free, some are vegan – but all have been given two thumbs up by the kids. Enjoy!
One of our favourites, just the smell of this cooking overnight is so delicious. I’ve had weeks where I’ve had this five days in a row. My kids never used to be big porridge fans but the combination of sweet apple and spicy cinnamon really does the trick with them. Making this couldn’t be simpler – just throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker overnight and come down in the morning to a delicious warming breakfast. Recipe here.
Packed with the goodness of oats and raspberries, these Vegan Wholegrain Raspberry Bars from JessicaGavin.com are enough to make your mouth water. Make them ahead of time and store in an airtight container, ready for the kids (and you!) on school mornings when you’re in a hurry. Recipe here.
Each of these lightly golden pancakes hides a deliciously soft and sweet apple ring. What a brilliant idea – we couldn’t ask for a lovelier start to the day. Erin from MeaningfulEats.com follows a 100% gluten-free diet because of coeliac disease – so this is a perfect and lovely gluten-free breakfast option. Recipe here.
For a protein-rich breakfast and the perfect way to use up leftover sausages, this Sausage & Tomato Breakfast Frittata is a big hit with all the family in our house. Shakeupyourwakeup.com is the official site of Breakfast Week and as well as this recipe, you’ll find loads of helpful information and inspiration to vamp up your morning breakfast routine. Recipe here.
Using quinoa instead of more traditional oats, this breakfast was a huge success when Amy from FeedingFinn.com first made it for her young sons. It takes just a couple of minutes to make, and is packed full of nutrient-rich quinoa and raspberries. We’re just in love with the colour. Recipe here.
A delicious mix of dried fruit, coconut, seeds, nuts and oats, this homemade Oatmeal Cookie Granola from FreeYourFork.com knocks the shop-bought kind for six. A labour of love, yes – but worth it. My kids loved this one. Recipe here.
I’m not sure I can name a single child who doesn’t like donuts, so I was intrigued by these Baked Pumpkin Donuts from RealFoodRealDeals.com which promise a secret healthy ingredient – pumpkin. As I’ve learned from my own cooking, using frozen or canned pumpkin is just as good as fresh so these are easy to make all year-round. Recipe here.
