Making Breakfast for Toddlers | Easy Breakfast Ideas Toddlers Will Love
Kids are sometimes hard to please, especially when it comes to food. Getting a picky eater to eat what you fix can be a game that no one wins! You need something easy for you and delicious for them. So, if you’re preparing breakfast for toddlers, let me help.
First, be sure you are aware of any allergies or strong dislikes before preparing food for toddlers. If they are your Grandchildren, you may already know these things, but if the kids belong to someone else or you don’t see them regularly, take the time to ask about diet restrictions and preferences.
Serving breakfast on bright colored little plates can make breakfast fun, too! (Stay away from toddler specific, Grandma. Stick with fun colors instead of Spiderman or Frozen themes. You want to be able to use these yourself – even after the littles are no longer little.) And by the way, do you remember these great cereal bowls? These brought back memories of breakfast back in the dinosaur age! You know — when I was a kid!
Once you have this information, choose something easy to make. This list contains a little of everything, from sweet to savory. Even most adults will love these breakfast ideas for toddlers.

Fruit & Yogurt
This combination is always a hit. Put the yogurt into a cute bowl or cup, and tip it with a favorite fruit, like blueberries, bananas, grapes or strawberries. Add in a little granola or Grape-Nuts for some crunch. For toddlers, you may want to give Grape-Nuts a little time to soften before serving.
Granola bars are always a hit with toddlers. There are versions of the recipe without nuts, which may be more appropriate for toddlers. Take a look at these yummy treats – I mean breakfast ideas from Bless This Mess Please!
