Toddler breakfast ideas

lilaki | Oct 17, 2013 06:03 AM

hi hounds,

am hoping you can help me out ... i've got an almost-2 year old little guy and am in a breakfast rut.

he USED to eat oatmeal religiously every morning ... loaded with coconut oil (to fatten him up) and hemp hearts. we do french toast every once in a while but recently, that seemed to fall out of favour. pumpkin pancakes were also hit-and-miss.

this morning, there was practically NO breakfast ingested ... just lots of tears (on his part) and frustration (on my part). he gets morning snack at daycare pretty much as soon as he's dropped off and sometimes he eats three servings and sometimes he eats nothing.

i have a protein shake every morning and he enjoys having some of what i'm having but even today, it was a miss.

anyway, would love any toddler-friendly breakfast ideas that we can either make a big batch of on the weekend or the night before.

thank you ... from a tired chow-mom.
