During the school year I slack at breakfast time, I’ll admit it. Frozen waffles take over my best intentions with a convenience factor that’s hard to resist. But I always want to do better and be that mom that can have a warm meal ready for my kids in the morning.
I get to redeem myself on weekends, though, so I’m always looking for the best healthy breakfast ideas for kids. Here are some that are a hit in my home, both for fun and nutrition that I keep on hand for the breakfast of my little champions.
Add some “Oomph!” to your breakfast with even more recipes for morning eats, including quick and easy breakfast kabobs, 8 cheap breakfast ideas, and 7 savory breakfasts that will make you forget all about sweets.

This recipe contains peanut butter, but you can substitute almond butter or Nutella® or another spread that works for you. I love handing over something super cute to my kids in the morning. This one works perfectly for that busy school morning with whole-grain bread, fruit, your choice of spreads, and fun. Use this idea to create other fun toast characters, too!
Nutella® coupons are just as irresistible as that chocolatey hazelnut spread itself!

Pancakes are always a hit with my kids. These dippers contain real fruit and kids love to dip and eat as they like! They’re a lot easier than regular pancakes, too. Kids have the choice to dip into the strawberry cream dip or maple syrup to make their breakfast perfect.
4. Zucchini Apple Muffins
If you’re looking for healthy and delicious, these moist and rich muffins are for you! I like that zucchini is tucked into the dough so that kids don’t even realize they’re eating a vegetable. You could make these into fun shapes for the holidays.
5. Breakfast Banana Split

On any given morning, I’ll find my kids in the fridge looking for their favorite frozen yogurt tube.

With just three ingredients, you can make these and store them for kids to pick up and enjoy. Try alternating flavors with fruit for even more fun!
