The most important meal of the day just got a lot easier to make.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and also the one we have the least time and energy to make. So what’s a caring parent to do? Luckily, there are plenty of easy breakfast ideas that will fill children up with crucial vitamins and nutrients, while also getting them geared up for the big day ahead — and importantly, they’ll actually want to eat these breakfast meals, so your mornings will be just as easy as the quick and easy breakfast is to cook.
The most obvious and convenient easy breakfast is breakfast cereal. Who doesn’t love cereal? There are more delicious cereal brands than ever, including both the classic sugary cereal you loved as kids and more hearty varieties that still pack plenty of flavor. No one ever said the word “flax” when you were younger, but now that nutrition scientists have discovered the benefits of natural ingredients, they’ve filled breakfast cereal and other breakfast meals up with them. You can also find these key ingredients in granolas and meal bars, if you need an extra quick and easy breakfast.
Got an extra minute to warm up something before school? Everyone loves eggo waffles and other cooked breakfast items, like oatmeal, hot cereals, and pancakes. Mmm, pancakes. With just a few minutes in the microwave, you can turn frozen breakfast meals into early morning treats, especially if you opt for some sweet-yet-healthy toppings like fruit or yogurt chips. We’ve long known just how important breakfast meals are for everyone, especially kids, and with the huge leap in health food development, easy breakfast ideas can help get the day started right!
