Easy Breakfasts for Kids to Make

Breakfast for Kids to Make

Breakfast — with food from the milk, grains, vegetable, fruit and/or protein groups — can set your child or teen in a healthful nutrition direction for the day. Even if kids are on their own in the morning, most can make these easy breakfasts, and they go down even healthier with 100-percent fruit juice or milk!

  • Cheese slices served with — or melted on — whole-wheat toast and 100-percent fruit juice
  • Iron-fortified cereal and milk, with banana slices
  • Peanut butter spread on toasted whole-grain bread, waffle or rolled inside a wheat tortilla, and tangerine
  • Fruit — bananas, strawberries, raisins — and milk on instant oatmeal
  • Cold pizza
  • Leftover spaghetti or macaroni and cheese, and banana
  • Apple and cheese slices between whole-wheat or graham crackers
  • Breakfast cereal topped with fresh fruit and a scoop of frozen yogurt
