10 Quick and Healthy Toddler Breakfast Ideas

Listed below our 10 of my toddlers’ favorite healthy breakfasts. They’re nice and quick for busy mornings and filled with plenty of protein and various fruits and veggies for growing bodies. 

Whole-milk plain yogurt with granola and fresh blueberries. We do sometimes mix it up a bit and go with vanilla flavored yogurt during picky eating phases


A banana “pop” made with half a banana, a peanut butter spread and a few dried cranberries sprinkled on top. Plus, a few more craisins on the side. You could also stick with classic raisins and use almond butter instead of peanut butter. 

We like to put our banana “pops” in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to make them nice and cool before eating. Feels great for teething toddlers. 


A whole grain mini bagel with cream cheese (slightly toasted), cut up grapes, and a small glass of orange juice as a special treat. 


These little egg breakfast muffins are pretty quick to whip up the morning of, or you could make them the night before and reheat them in the morning.

We use this recipe, but replace the bacon with red peppers. Such a great way to sneak in some veggies. 

On the side, we have a peeled and diced pear. 


A hard boiled egg with fresh strawberries and pineapple. My toddlers rarely eat an entire egg, but sometimes they surprise me and gobble the whole thing right up. 

Organic toasted oats cereal, clementines and sliced bananas, and a glass of whole milk. Of course, you could always throw the milk and banana slices into the cereal. 


These lemon blueberry zucchini muffins are one of our all-time faves. We’ve even used them as a healthy birthday cake alternative. 

I like to bake these with my toddlers over the weekend and have them ready to go for crazy weekday mornings. Best served with a serving of fresh blueberries on the side. 

Take note: We do omit the lemon glaze in this recipe for breakfasts. 


A slice of healthy banana bread with some organic unsweetened applesauce. This is a great combo for fall mornings

Apple cinnamon oatmeal with apple slices on top. 


Of course, you can’t forget the classic scrambled eggs and toast. Served with some mixed berries and a fun star cut-out.

  • Fruit & veggie smoothie 
  • Breakfast cookies
  • Healthy pumpkin muffins
  • Cottage cheese and peaches
  • Healthy blueberry waffles
  • Avocado toast 

Our Favorite Toddler Dinnerware

Non-toxic is pretty high priority in our house, and we’re always looking for better products for our family.

We’ve tried out several bamboo options in the past, but most ended up breaking relatively quickly. They just couldn’t stand the test of time against my crazy toddlers. 

I think we’ve finally found an option that works though! My toddlers and I instantly fell in love with this 5 piece bamboo dinnerware set by HM-Tech, which is the set featured in this post. 

I like that it’s non-toxic and eco-friendly, and my toddlers love having they’re own little cups and “feeks” (forks).   

And, even though they’re plastic, we do still love our Re-Play divided plates, because they’re BPA, phthalate, PVC, and melamine free and made with recycled milk cartons right here in the USA. We also like our stainless steel Miracle 360 cups and Planet Wise snack bags for breakfasts on-the-go.

Healthy Eating for Stress-Free Mornings

Mornings with toddlers can be stressful and rushed. But you still need your little to have a nutritious breakfast to start the day right. 

Use the recipes listed above to nourish your toddler’s growing body and get everyone out the door. And, don’t be afraid to mix and match the main and side dishes. 

With these ideas, you’ll have your toddlers eating healthy and your mornings feel less rushed.

    What is the thing you use for holding the banana?

      It’s a reusable popsicle stick from our popsicle making kit, but I’m sure any kind of popsicle stick would do. 🙂
