30 Breakfast Ideas for a 1-year-old

Posted on

Our post, 30 Meal Ideas for 1-Year-Olds, has been so incredibly popular that I asked our contributor, Kaley, to follow it up with a breakfast version.

What I love most about this is that we have breakfast for dinner on the regular around here– which means that now we have 60 great kid-friendly meal ideas!

Here she is with her list (and if anyone knows healthy kid food, it’s Kaley, so it’s a great list).

We have two go-to breakfasts in my house. And they are both super simple formulas that can be endlessly customized.

The first is eggs + fruit + bread. One day it might be scrambled eggs, toast, and cut up strawberries. The next it is hard boiled eggs, sliced apple and an English muffin.

And then we will get really wild and crazy and combine the egg and bread and do an egg in the hole (my kids’ favorite!) with blueberries and kiwi.

The second easy customizable breakfast we do is oatmeal + fruit. I especially like this one because it works for babies as young as 6 months, meaning one breakfast for everyone in the family. Score!

You can make the oatmeal (read about making oatmeal for babies here) with whole milk, coconut milk, almond milk, or whatever type of milk your family drinks. Then add whatever combination of fruit you want, and you are done.

As customizable as our two go-to breakfasts are, sometimes it is nice to switch it up a little. So below you will find my top 30 breakfast ideas for a one-year-old.
