You know, you do not have to serve cold cereal every morning, even with a lot of little kids! There are simple, easy, AND healthy options! Here are our favorites!
- Hard boiled eggs. I make a batch every evening and my kids each have one almost every weekday morning. They are easy to grab out of the fridge, even on busy mornings when we need to get out of the house early!
- Rolled oats or bananas. My kids alternate between a bowl of old fashioned oatmeal with maple syrup or a banana to go with their egg. Easy enough for my big kids to get for themselves and the littles!
- Smoothies. I make these for the kids about 1-2 times a week to take the place of a banana for each kid. If we are low on bananas and there aren't enough for each kid, I will whip up a smoothie using canned coconut milk, banana, raw honey, and frozen blueberries (and I'll add protein powder if we have it). I then rinse out my blender, add a squirt of soap and some water, pulse for a bit to "wash" it, and then do the same with just water to rinse it. Easy clean up!
- Coconut-flour protein waffles. These are very quick, easy, filling, and provide protein since there are so many eggs in it (which are needed when using store-bought coconut flour). I make this once a week. I have tweaked the recipe to our liking and blend it all up in our blender, pour onto the waffle iron, and serve with real maple syrup. I wash the blender as stated above. Very easy and the kids feel like mom actually makes them breakfast once in awhile, lol! P.S. these are a THM - S and delicious served with real butter and some sugar-free raspberry jam!
