Easy Toddler Breakfast

PageLines- breakfastfortot.jpg

We love fresh fruit & oats around here. So SuperBoy’s breakfast is fairly simple. After a long stint with Super Baby Food, how can I give up the wonderful properties of grains multiple times a day? So we start the day with oatmeal, yogurt, and fresh fruit. Nina’s Coffee Cafe in Saint Paul has a similarly delicious oatmeal that’s such a sweet way to start your day. He loves theirs lots, as they also have cranberries or raisins to boot! (Another great reason for Nina’s with a small child: the buses run on Selby frequently and can be viewed out their huge windows.)

The other day we shared a smoothie as well. LouLou Ingredient’s Blueberry Smoothie. So delicious for mama & tot! Love her recipes. If you’re not a subscriber, you are missing out.

      We use plain whole milk yogurt & the slow cookin’ oats. It’s like a treat in the morning 🙂

    LOVE new ideas for breakfast! Thanks for sharing! D is just starting to slowly learn how to use a spoon so this will be a great trial dish to serve him. And smoothies rock! I try an make them a few times a week and love sneaking in ingredients like spinach, cod liver oil and flax seed oil so get some extra nutrients 🙂 I also picked up some Popsicle molds at Ikea that we’ve used a few times thus far by freezing some smoothie leftovers and will be used lots this summer 🙂

      Spoon learning is easiest with a slightly sticky food, like oatmeal. Awesome ideas on the smoothies and popsickles!!
