Children must eat a healthy breakfast. Eating the right food helps children get the right nutrients for growth and can help increase intellectual power. This can help children develop to their full potential and take the day off from school.
20 to 30 percent of children and teens skip this meal. Preparing appropriate breakfast foods can be a problem. That’s why we’ve put together this list of easy-to-make breakfast ideas that are portable.
1. Egg and Vegetable Muffins
Salty muffins are a delicious and easy way to sneak in extra vegetables and are portable. Added to that, they’re easy to make in advance and stay fresh for a few days.
Mix eggs, pepper, and salt in a bowl and add a few chopped vegetables of your choice.
Grease a muffin pan and divide the mixture evenly. Finally, bake in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean after pricking it into one of the muffins.
2. Overnight oats
Mason jars can be used to make oats at night. This can be done the night before, and your child can customize it to their taste with their favorite toppings. Add half a cup of milk and a quarter cup of rolled oats to the Mason jar. You can add dried or fresh fruit, grated coconut, seeds, or nuts.
3. Pear and sorghum porridge
Sorghum has a nut texture and can be used as an alternative to gluten-free cereals. Add milk to cooked sorghum and top with sliced pears or seasonal fruit. Place it in a mason’s jar for easy transport.
4. Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Add spice to your favorite pancakes by adding a spoonful of chocolate protein powder to the mix. Add a little more milk if you find that the dough becomes too thick. Another tip: add Greek yogurt, chia seeds, ground flax, and pumpkin seeds to the dough to increase the nutritional benefits of your pancakes.
5. Toast topped with ricotta and strawberries.
Spread one or two slices of ricotta wholemeal bread. Add fresh sliced strawberries on top. It’s as simple as that. The preparation of this meal gives you access to several food groups at once.
6. Unicorn fruits and green smoothie
Mix a mixture of fruits and vegetables with a large source of probiotics, such as kefir. To make the smoothie more interesting, mix similarly colored fruits and vegetables, and add different colors layer by layer to create a rainbow effect.
7. Greek yogurt smoothie bowl
Mix a smoothie of your choice and add it to a Mason jar for easy transport. We recommend using Greek yogurt in the smoothie as it is exceptionally healthy. Top with nuts, seeds, and dried or fresh fruit.
8. Banana split – but a version for breakfast
Put Greek yogurt, granola, sliced strawberries, and banana in a bowl with chopped nuts to create a healthy banana split option.
9. Salted oatmeal
Start by making oatmeal on the stove. Add cheese, a touch of salt, and green vegetables, such as spinach, to the mixture. Oatmeal should not always be sweet. This gives the grain a tasty and easily transportable taste
10. Toast to avocado
Season and crush a little avocado, then spread it on one or two slices of toast. Finally, add slices of tomato, cucumber, or boiled egg to make a refreshing breakfast sandwich.
