25 Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Kids
It's important for kids to eat a healthy breakfast to refuel their bodies after sleep, as their brains and bodies are still developing (1Trusted Source).
Yet, 20–30% of children and adolescents tend to skip this meal (1Trusted Source).
A healthy breakfast can be quick and easy for you or your child to make. Breakfasts can also be made ahead of time, and some are portable for eating on the go.
Here are 25 simple and healthy breakfast options for kids.
Eggs are a staple breakfast item, as they're easy to prepare, versatile, and packed with high-quality protein and other nutrients (2).
Also, compared with cereal, eggs may keep kids feeling more full throughout the morning (4Trusted Source).
One study in 8- and 9-year-old children found that those who ate more lutein-rich foods had higher levels of lutein in their retinas. This was associated with improved academic performance, including better scores in math and written language (5Trusted Source).
Here are some scrumptious ways to serve eggs for breakfast.
1. Egg-and-vegetable muffins
These muffins are a great way to sneak in some extra vegetables. Plus, they're portable and easy to make in advance.
To make them, mix eggs, salt, and pepper in a bowl and add chopped vegetables of your choice.
Divide the mixture evenly into greased muffin tins and bake at 400°F (200°C) for 12–15 minutes or until done.
2. Eggs in a hole
Using a round cookie cutter, cut a hole in the middle of a slice of whole-grain bread and place it in a frying pan with some olive oil or melted butter.
Crack an egg into the hole and cook on the stovetop until done.
3. Ham-and-cheese frittata
Frittatas are an easier version of omelets. Simply beat 1–2 eggs per person with some salt and pepper and pour into a nonstick frying pan.
Sprinkle with chopped ham and any type of shredded cheese, then cook on medium-high heat until the eggs are set.
No flipping is required. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve.
4. Scrambled-egg tacos
For a fun and portable twist on tacos, scramble 1–2 eggs per child and serve in taco-size whole-grain tortillas.
If desired, top with cheese and black beans for extra protein and salsa for veggies and flavor.
5. Berry breakfast strata
Stratas are a hearty make-ahead version of French toast.
To make one, line a baking dish with six slices or broken-up pieces of whole-grain bread. Sprinkle fresh berries over the bread.
Beat 6 eggs, 1/2 cup (120 ml) of milk, and 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of vanilla. Optionally, you can add 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of maple syrup.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread and fruit, cover, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake the strata at 350°F (177°C) for about 30 minutes or until it's puffy and golden.
6. Hard-boiled egg pops
To make egg pops, cut a carrot or celery stalk in half lengthwise and then into 4-inch (10-cm) lengths. Next, peel 1–2 hard-boiled eggs per person. Carefully poke the carrot or celery sticks into the bottoms of the eggs.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper or add a dollop of mustard if desired.
Healthy Whole-Grain Options
Whole grains, which have all three parts of the grain — germ, bran, and endosperm — intact, include brown rice, whole wheat, oats, quinoa, sorghum, and millet. They're healthier than refined grains because they're higher in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals (6Trusted Source).
Indeed, children may benefit from eating more of them.
In a 9-month study in children ages 9–11 with excess weight, those who ate 3 servings of whole-grain foods each day had a lower body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, and body fat percentage, compared with those who ate their regular diet (6Trusted Source).
Many whole-grain breakfasts can be prepared ahead of time. Here are some tasty options.
7. Overnight oats
Overnight oats are easy to make in Mason jars the night before, and your child can customize this dish with their favorite toppings.
Mix about 1/4 cup (26 grams) of rolled oats and 1/2 cup (120 ml) of any type of milk in a small Mason jar. Top with nuts, shredded coconut, chia seeds, and dried or fresh fruit.
Instead of cooking, leave the jar in the fridge and let the oats soften overnight.
8. Baked oatmeal
After you bake this healthy breakfast of whole grains and fruit, you can eat it throughout the week.
In a bowl, mix:
- 2 cups (208 grams) of rolled oats
- 3 cups (700 ml) of any type of milk
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of vanilla
- brown sugar to taste
- any type of fresh or frozen fruit
Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish and bake at 350°F (180°C) for about 45 minutes or until the oatmeal is set.
9. Pear-and-sorghum porridge
Sorghum is a gluten-free whole grain with a chewy, nutty texture.
Mix cooked sorghum with any type of milk and top it with ripe, sliced pears — or any seasonal fruit.
10. Blueberry mug muffin
Wild blueberries are packed with antioxidants and make a great addition to your breakfast.
In a microwave-safe mug, mix:
- 1/4 cup (30 grams) of flour
- 1 tablespoon (12.5 grams) of brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon (5 grams) of baking powder
- a pinch of salt and cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of milk
- a small handful of frozen blueberries
Microwave on high for 80–90 seconds.
11. Pumpkin-quinoa porridge
Quinoa is a quick-cooking gluten-free grain, and this breakfast porridge packs a punch of vitamin A from canned pumpkin.
Boil one part quinoa with two parts of any type of milk, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 10 minutes.
Stir in some canned pumpkin, cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg and let simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Before serving, top it with chopped nuts, brown sugar, or shredded coconut.
12. Peanut-butter-banana breakfast cookies
Breakfast cookies are cookie-shaped muffins that pack more whole grains into your routine.
To make them, you'll want:
- 1 cup (104 grams) of quick oats
- 3/4 cup (90 grams) of whole-wheat flour
- a pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup (115 grams) of very ripe mashed banana
- 1/4 cup (59 ml) of maple syrup
- 1/4 cup (59 ml) of milk
- 2 tablespoons (32 grams) of smooth peanut butter
Mix the ingredients, preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Drop the batter into about 12–15 cookies, flattening them lightly with a spatula, then bake for 10–15 minutes or until firm and golden. Cool on a cooling rack before serving or storing in an airtight container.
13. Chocolate protein pancakes
Make your favorite pancakes more satisfying by adding a scoop of chocolate protein powder to the batter. Add a bit of extra milk if the batter is too thick.
You can also boost pancakes' protein content by adding Greek yogurt, eggs, ground flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, or chia seeds to the batter.
14. Strawberry ricotta toast
This simple meal hits multiple food groups at once. Spread whole-grain toast with ricotta cheese and top it with sliced strawberries.
Drinkable Breakfast Options
Breakfast smoothies are an easy way to pack an entire meal into a drink. They're also a good way to add extra fruits and vegetables to your child's diet.
In a study in adolescents, introducing fruit smoothies as a school breakfast item increased the percentage of students who ate a full serving of fruit from 4.3% to 45.1% (7Trusted Source).
For a healthy breakfast smoothie, use a small serving of unsweetened fresh or frozen fruit. Add a handful of leafy green vegetables, a spoonful of nut butter for healthy fat, and either milk, Greek yogurt, or a serving of soft-cooked legumes for protein.
Here are some drinkable breakfast options.
15. Chocolate-peanut-butter-banana smoothie
Blend a frozen banana, scoop of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon (7.5 grams) of unsweetened cocoa powder, and milk.
16. Strawberry-almond-butter smoothie
Frozen strawberries are great for this smoothie. Blend them with some almond butter and milk.
17. Unicorn fruit-and-greens smoothie
Make a healthy, colorful smoothie by blending probiotic-rich kefir with various fruits and greens.
To get rainbow layers, blend each food separately and pour it into a glass. Lightly drag a straw through the layers to swirl them together.
18. Orange creamsicle smoothie
This smoothie is full of vitamin C to boost your immune system, potassium for electrolytes, and protein to fuel your muscles.
Blend the following:
- half of a frozen banana
- the fruit and zest of 1 small orange
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) of orange juice
- 1/2 cup (150 grams) of vanilla Greek yogurt
19. Greek-yogurt smoothie bowl
Smoothie bowls are a cool, refreshing breakfast. Pour an extra-thick smoothie into a bowl and top it with fruit, nuts, and seeds. Greek yogurt makes an excellent base.
Fruits and Vegetables for Breakfast
Fruits and vegetables are highly nutritious, but most children — and adults — don't eat the recommended daily amounts (9Trusted Source).
The recommended intakes range from 1.5–4 cups for vegetables and 1–2.5 cups for fruits per day, depending on a child's age. If you use the metric system, keep in mind that gram equivalents for these amounts vary widely (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source).
Serving more fruits and vegetables at breakfast time can help children establish healthy eating habits.
In a study in 16- and 17-year-old students, eating more vegetables was associated with lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while eating more fruit was associated with a lower BMI (11Trusted Source).
Researchers note that providing fruits and veggies at home, and eating them with your kids, helps them get in the habit of eating these foods (12Trusted Source).
Here are a few simple recipes.
20. Breakfast banana split
In a bowl, top a peeled banana with Greek yogurt, sliced strawberries, granola, and chopped nuts to make a healthier banana split.
21. Baked apples
After coring a few apples, fill them with a pat of butter, few spoonfuls of oats, and some cinnamon.
Cook in a slow cooker on low for about 5 hours or until soft and tender. Finally, top them with Greek yogurt for some extra protein.
22. Berry yogurt parfaits
Layer high-protein Greek yogurt with fresh berries and a sprinkle of granola for a quick and easy meal that hits multiple food groups.
23. Vegetable tofu scramble
Tofu scramble is a great option for anyone who doesn't eat eggs but wants a high-protein breakfast.
To make it, sauté minced onion in oil and add mashed, firm tofu alongside your choice of spices and vegetables. Tasty combinations include sautéed spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes, or roasted red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes with fresh basil.
24. Savory oatmeal with greens and cheese
Oatmeal doesn't have to be sweet or topped with fruit. Try mixing in spinach — or any other vegetable — and cheese with a pinch of salt for a savory twist.
25. Avocado-cucumber-tomato toast
Spread mashed avocado over whole-grain toast, then top with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes for a hearty, open-faced breakfast sandwich.
The Bottom Line
Many healthy breakfast options can help kids get the nutrients they need for the day.
Breakfast is a great opportunity to load up on protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
These nutritious dishes can be an important step toward establishing healthy eating habits not only for your kids but also your whole family.

"Hospital Capacity Crosses Tipping Point in U.S. Coronavirus Hot Spots" – Wall Street Journal
This is a headline I hoped to not see again after the number of coronavirus infections had finally started to decline in the Northeast and Pacific Northwest. However, the pandemic has now shifted to the South and the West – with Arizona, Florida, California and Texas as hot spots.
Hard-Hit States Quickly Learned Value of Masks<p>As a respiratory virus, SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted mainly through droplets that leave the mouth and nose as a person talks, sneezes, coughs or exhales. It thrives in environments where there are lots of people in enclosed spaces – <a href="https://theconversation.com/aerosols-are-a-bigger-coronavirus-threat-than-who-guidelines-suggest-heres-what-you-need-to-know-142233" target="_blank">especially if they are laughing, talking, singing</a> or otherwise coming into close contact. It thrives physically in the same settings where we thrive socially.</p><p>This is why the early hard-hit areas were able to crush the curve by closing businesses and implementing stay-at-home orders. Without significant close human interaction, the coronavirus couldn't spread.</p><p>While other states are now seeing hospitals fill with COVID-19 patients, most of the Northeast is maintaining control of community spread as its economies reopen. The difference reflects, at least in part, each state's behavior expectations and the willingness of residents to keep up safety precautions like wearing masks, avoiding large crowds, maintaining social distance of at least six feet and staying isolated when they are ill or may have been exposed to the virus.</p>

An <a href="https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/06/26/which-part-of-the-u-s-leads-the-country-in-mask-wearing/" target="_blank">Axios/Ipsos poll</a> showed that in states with high mask use, virus circulation is at <a href="https://www.inquirer.com/health/coronavirus/covid-19-coronavirus-face-masks-infection-rates-20200624.html" target="_blank">lower levels compared to states with less mask use</a>. Studies on the <a href="https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-020-0908-8" target="_blank">effects of how quickly coronavirus restrictions have been lifted</a> around the world have found that slow, careful strategies have led to fewer illnesses and deaths during reopening.</p><p>In many parts of the Northeast, the months of illnesses, deaths and the struggle to turn the COVID-19 tide are still <a href="https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/06/23/most-americans-say-they-regularly-wore-a-mask-in-stores-in-the-past-month-fewer-see-others-doing-it/" target="_blank">fresh in people's minds</a>.

Depending on the news sources people listen to, they might hear warnings from health officials being taken seriously or being dismissed by pundits and politicians.</p><p>A <a href="https://www.axios.com/axios-ipsos-poll-coronavirus-index-15-weeks-e4eb53cc-9bc8-4cac-8285-07e5e5ef6b2b.html" target="_blank">recent national poll</a> shows that Democrats report consistently wearing a mask 68% of the time, while Republicans reported doing the same only 34% of the time. The national conversation has devolved into a false dichotomy: Either you're on the side of prioritizing safety or you're on the side of personal freedom and opening the economy.</p><p>In reality, the two should be partners, as these preventative measures are the best tools we have to reach our common goals of reopening businesses and schools safely. It's the same reason we stop at stoplights and go through metal detectors at the airport – we make a small sacrifice for the greater public good.</p><p>For the foreseeable future, Americans will have to collectively agree to live life a little differently. Until we can all agree on this, the coronavirus will continue to have the upper hand, and our health and wealth will suffer.</p>

The conclusion to decades of work to remove a dam on the Middle Fork Nooksack River east of Bellingham, Washington began with a bang yesterday as crews breached the dam with a carefully planned detonation. This explosive denouement is also a beginning.
The History<p>The Middle Fork Nooksack drains glacier-fed headwater streams that run off the icy summit of 10,778-foot Mt. Baker. The Middle Fork joins the North Fork and then the mainstem of the Nooksack River, which travels to Bellingham Bay and Puget Sound. The entire Nooksack watershed stretches 830 square miles across Washington and into British Columbia.</p>
A Plan Comes Together<p>The Middle Fork dam is not a pool dam built for water storage. Much of the time, water flows over the top until dam operators drop a floodgate to divert water to new locations. That water travels about 14 miles through tunnel and pipeline to Mirror Lake, then Anderson Creek, and to Lake Whatcom before finally being delivered to residents' taps.</p><p>Before removing the dam, engineers had to move the water intake 700 feet upstream and situate it at an elevation that still enabled city water withdrawals throughout the year, regardless of flow conditions.</p><p>They also needed to make sure that the rushing water didn't sweep up fish and accidentally send them through the water-supply system.</p><p>"The solution required a fairly complex design in the intake structure, including a fish exit pipe out of that structure to put fish back into the river in a way that meets current environmental permit standards," explains LaCroix.</p>
Project layout for the removal of the Middle Fork Nooksack diversion dam and rebuilding of water intake. City of Bellingham<p>Despite the cost and the work, she says, being able to continue to meet their municipal water obligations while opening up habitat for threatened species has been a win-win.</p><p>"I think there's a lot of benefits to having a dam removal versus fish passage — the main one being that you get a free-flowing river that can be a dynamic ecosystem and change over time," she says. "A static fish ladder just can't provide that same level of ecosystem benefit."</p>
Restoration Success<p>Despite local authorities' championing dam removal on the Middle Fork, the project has largely flown under the radar, overshadowed in the Pacific Northwest by heated discussions about a much larger potential project — removing <a href="https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/feds-reject-removal-of-4-snake-river-dams-in-key-report/" target="_blank">four federal hydroelectric dams on the lower Snake River</a>, a major tributary of the Columbia River.</p><p>Proponents of dam removal there see it as the best chance for recovering threatened salmon populations, including Chinook, which could help starving Southern Resident killer whales. Those dams also provide irrigation water, barge navigation and hydropower, so there's been more pushback against removal efforts.</p><p>Previous dam removals around the country, however, have proved successful at aiding fish recovery and river restoration.</p><p>Most notably the 1999 demolition of <a href="https://therevelator.org/edwards-dam-removal/" target="_blank">Edwards Dam on Maine's Kennebec River</a> restored the annual run of alewives, a type of herring essential to the food web. The fish run has gone from zero to 5 million in the two decades since dam removal. Blueback herring, striped bass, sturgeon and shad have also extended their reach. And the resurgence has brought back osprey, bald eagles and other wildlife, too.</p><p>The overwhelming success of river restoration on the Kennebec helped to spur a nationwide dam removal movement that's now seen 1,200 dams come down since 1999. Last year a record <a href="https://www.americanrivers.org/conservation-resource/a-record-26-states-removed-dams-in-2019/" target="_blank">90 dams</a> were removed in 26 states, including <a href="https://therevelator.org/cleveland-forest-dam-removal/" target="_blank">20 dams in California's Cleveland National Forest</a>.</p>
Spider excavators remove on dam on San Juan Creek in California's Cleveland National Forest. Julie Donnell, USFS<p>The results have been seen in the Pacific Northwest, as well, which boasts the largest dam removal thus far in the country. In 2011 and 2014, the demolition of <a href="https://therevelator.org/elwha-dam-removal/" target="_blank">two dams</a> on Elwha River, which runs through Washington's Olympic National Park, opened up 70 miles of habitat that had been blocked for a century. Scientists have started seeing all five species of salmon native to the river coming back, particularly Chinook and coho. Bull trout, they've observed, have increased in size since the dams were removal.</p>
Benefits on the Middle Fork Nooksack<p>McEwan hopes to see a similar outcome on the Middle Fork.</p><p>Like the Elwha the Middle Fork Nooksack is a relatively pristine river with little development, and dam removal is expected to provide a big boost to fish. The additional miles of spawning habitat are important, but so is the temperature of that water.</p><p>The dam removal will open access to cold upstream waters, which are ideal for salmon and getting harder to come by as climate change warms waters and reduces mountain runoff.</p><p>"This is really great for the climate change resiliency for these species," says McEwan.</p><p>Steelhead will get back 45% of their historic habitat in the river, and scientists expect Chinook populations to increase in abundance by 31%.</p><p>That <em>could</em> help Southern Resident killer whales.</p><p>"When you get to the ocean, it's a little bit of a black box in terms of what you can model and say definitively is going to help, but more fish is better for orcas," McEwan says.</p><p>Upstream habitat will see benefits, too.</p><p>Oceangoing fish like salmon enrich their bodies with carbon and nitrogen while at sea. When they return to their natal rivers to spawn and die, the marine-derived nutrients they carry back upriver become important food and fertilizer for both riverine and terrestrial ecosystems — aiding everything from trees to birds to bears.</p><p>"Once the fish start making their way back, it will start changing the whole ecological system," says Delgado.</p><p><span></span>But any ecological benefit from salmon restoration, either in the ocean or the upper watershed, won't be immediate.<br></p><p>"The population of salmon on the Middle Fork is so low that we expect it's going to take quite a while to rebound," she says. "But the big picture is that what's good for salmon is good for the region — our history and our destiny are intricately intertwined."</p><p>After decades of work, that process of restoration has finally begun.</p>

A new tool called The Food Systems Dashboard aims to save decision makers time and energy by painting a complete picture of a country's food system. Created by the Johns Hopkins' Alliance for a Healthier World, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), and the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Dashboard compiles food systems data from over 35 sources and offers it as a public good.
