10 Best Breakfasts to Feed Your Children


Setting your kids up for a full day of learning starts with a nutritious breakfast. We all know how hectic it can get in the morning. You’re trying to get your kids ready for school while getting yourself out the door too. Sometimes it can just be easier to make them grab a slice of toast or get fast food instead of taking the time to make a homemade breakfast. With a little planning and some smart choices, breakfast can be a breeze to make.

If you find yourself rushing too much in the morning, try making breakfast the night before. Many of these dishes are perfect reheated the next day. Some choices you can even make a week in advanced! This will hopefully clear up some time to get your kids dressed and ready to face the day.

Here are 10 great breakfast choices for your children.

1. Homemade Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great choice for breakfast. Your children will love the comforting flavors of this staple. Skip the heavily processed oatmeal that comes in individual portions. Cooking oatmeal from scratch is quick and simple. Steel cut oatmeal is the healthiest choice because it’s the least processed. However, it takes the longest cooking time. Soak the oats overnight to make them cook up quickly. You can also make a huge batch of oatmeal on the weekend and portion it out on the weekdays.
