Healthy breakfast ideas for children...and adults...

Posted by food hugs on February 12, 2014 at 5:35 AM

It's the meal that starts your child off on it's daily adventures, so the most important thing is that provides a solid platform for their day.

Not a big sugar high that will lead to a mid morning slump (let's not mention those cereals), but something that will deliver a nice constant stream of energy, plenty of fuel for young brains and one of their five a day, just for an overall health boost!

The formula I use is:

Wholegrain carbohydrate + good fats/protein + fruit/vegetable = a boy bouncing out to school!

Some ideas along this formula are:


  • Porridge + 2 tbsp of Linwoods ground seeds (or 'sprinkles') + natural yogurt + berries
  • Flahavan's Hi 8 muesli + 2 tbsp chia seeds + chopped banana
  • McCambridges toasted brown bread + scrambled egg + green smoothie
  • Low sugar granola (e.g. Paddy O's) + natural yogurt + chopped nuts + berries
  • Wholemeal toast + mashed avocado with lemon + berry smoothie
  • Wholemeal toast + low sugar/low salt baked beans + green smoothie
  • Oatcakes + peanut butter + slices of apple + green smoothie
  • Grain free granola + natural yogurt + orange/apple fruit salad
  • Oatcakes + with cream cheese + boiled egg + cherry tomatoes
  • Weetabix + flaked almonds + sliced banana


I'd love to hear any other options to have along these lines. Email them to me, or leave a comment below and I'll add them to the list. Log onto Facebook for other ideas and hits and tips.
