Healthy Breakfast ideas for Kids or Adults

Here are five options that will help make sure your child gets a good, healthy start to the day. Each of these makes four servings in our home.

1. Avocado and Vegetable Frittata

My son isn’t a big fan of scrambled eggs. If I serve a frittata filled with veggies and topped with avocado, he gobbles it up. Sometimes it’s just the texture or presentation of a food, so get creative if your child rejects a food the first few times.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Cups of finely chopped vegetables such as zucchini, bell peppers, cooked broccoli
  • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375º. Line a 8 X 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add a variety of green vegetables, plus 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Sauté until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Spread the vegetables evenly in the prepared pan.
  • Using a fork, beat together the eggs, salt, pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and sprinkle on the cheese. (feel free to omit)
  • Place the skillet in the oven and cook until eggs are just set, about 15-20 minutes.

2. Green Smoothieghdcjv,

Ever since I can remember, Logan has been asking for a taste of my green drinks. I’m quite impressed with his taste buds as he’s quite keen on most of my crazy concoctions. They’re a great way to get greens for breakfast or as a mid-afternoon snack. Here is one of our favorite smoothie recipes. It’s packed with tons of phytonutrients, superfoods and it’s super delicious.

  • 1 ½ cup of water, 1 stalk celery, ½ Cucumber, ½ avocado, 1 cup leafy greens, ½ lemon, peeled
  • Throw all the ingredients in a blender and serve!

3. Raw Muesli

This is an easy, nutritious replacement for cereal. You can make a big batch and keep it in the fridge for the mornings when you’re pressed for time.  Easy Raw Muesli Recipe

4. Grass Fed Yogurt, Granola and Blueberries

We don’t eat a lot of dairy products in our house, but occasionally we have yogurt for breakfast. I use a local, grass-fed unsweetened yogurt and add wild blueberries with a bit of homemade granola. If there’s no time to make granola that week, we love Purely Elizabeth in our house!

  • 1 cup of local, grass-fed unsweetened yogurt
  • ½ sliced banana
  • ¼ cup of granola

5. Coconut Flour Pancakes
