5 Healthy + Easy Breakfast Ideas for Kids

5 Healthy + Easy Breakfast Ideas for Kids

I am not a morning person. I set that alarm for as late as possible and then it's go-go-go as fast as we can until we're out the door for school. Despite all the rushing, it is important that my kids have a healthy breakfast before heading out - but I'm still not going to spend a lot of time preparing it. (We save the elaborate breakfasts for the weekends when my alarm isn't screaming in my ear at 6 AM.) Thankfully, I've gotten pretty good at coming up with breakfasts that don't take long but are still delicious and give my kids the nutrition they need.

5 Healthy + Easy Breakfast Ideas for Kids

1. Overnight Oats  
I just throw some oats in a jar, add nut milk or Naked Nutrition Kid’s Daily Essentials Nutrition Shakeand put the jar in the fridge before bed. In the morning I add sliced strawberries and drizzle with almond butter. Healthy, quick, and so good!

This shake mix is new and already a favorite in our house. (We love Vanilla, but it's available in Chocolate too!) I just mix it with some organic milk and it's ready to go! The shakes are delicious, and they contain 8g of Protein from organic milk, 6 organic vegetable powders, and 25 vitamins and minerals. They also contain no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives, are certified Gluten-Free, and are Soy and GMO Free! A true breakfast of champions! And if we're really late (which happens more than I'd like to admit), we can take this on the go. 

3. Egg Bites
I am admittedly not a meal prep-er, but if I have extra time on a Sunday, I pour scrambled eggs, cheese, and some protein (meat or veggie meat) in muffin tins, bake, and freeze. So easy to heat up, full of protein, and my kids love them.

4. Sliced apples and nut butter (almond, peanut, or sunflower seed)
A go-to from my own childhood. My kids love this because it's fun like a snack. I love it because it's packed with protein and fiber, but only takes a minute or two to prepare.

Owl Avocado Toast

5. Fun avocado toast
This one admittedly takes a little longer than the others, but I smash up avocado the night before and slice fruit and hard boiled egg, so all I really have to do in the morning is toast the bread. This is always a hit, and it's full of healthy fats.

All of these simple breakfast ideas actually all make pretty great after school snacks too. This is yet another reason I love Naked Nutrition Kid’s Daily Essentials Nutrition Shake Mix - you can as easily whip up a shake for a snack or dessert as you can a breakfast! We also love to add it to smoothies. 

I hope these ideas help make your mornings a little easier and fill your kids bellies in a happy, healthy way!
