Breakfast (at least in our house) seems to be a take it or leave it based on the day. That’s why I love this list of Healthy Toddler Breakfasts for our family. My kids aren’t crazy about breakfast some days but, they will have a snack, and others they will eat a full breakfast. I try to find healthy options for them to eat whether it is a snacking-type day or a day where they are ready for a full breakfast.
20 Healthy Toddler Breakfasts
One of my favorite things to do to manage healthy toddler breakfasts is to make small portions and have them easy to use as a grab and go meal. If your children are like mine, then they love when I hand them a bag of snacks that they can take to the playroom or snack while watching their favorite morning cartoon. This list has tons of things that are ideal for small portions!
