31 Quick and Easy breakfast ideas for TODDLERS

quick and easy egg muffins

When you have toddlers who are full of energy from the moment they wake up, you have to be able to make the most of every minute of the day. Suddenly, cooking can become a job of making sure you don’t injure either yourself or your child while they run around you in the kitchen. You find yourself wondering why the meals you cook take so long to prepare.

That’s the last thing you need. You need to be able to whip up something fast. These recipes work for lunch and dinner but in the mornings, you want it to be as nutritious AND quick as possible. The so-called most important meal of the day should not also be the most difficult.

My little girl went through months and months of wanting only eggs and/or porridge for brekkie. She’s just hit 18 months old and now seems to want almost nothing. I never quite know how each morning is going to go. I’m having to try something new just about every morning, only for her to have two mouthfuls of it. I have to keep trying though!

If you’re in a similar position to me, this list of quick and easy breakfast ideas for toddlers will be a big help!
