Each morning we wake up as a family, get ready for the day and try to eat breakfast together. Some days it works out some days Rob is running out the door because he spend too much time goofing off with the kids. If we have our act together I try to make the kids something instead of just relying on frozen waffles and cereal. This week Shae wanted to try something new with her eggs to make them different and BETTER.New Breakfast Ideas for Kids #kidsinthekitchen

The first day she asked for something “fancy” on them. Chives have a great flavor and she loves onion so that is what we did.  The next day we chopped up some grape tomatoes, another favorite of hers.  Next I want to suggest sauteed mushrooms or spinach. This is a great way to doctor up a simple meal, encourage more veggie consumption and broaden tastebuds.

I have a feeling this is going to become a new staple, scrambled eggs topped with whatever is in the fridge with a side of  wheat toast topped with 1 slice of cheese.New Breakfast Ideas for Kids #kidsinthekitchen

Letting your child pick ingredients is a way to get them to try new things. This could be right out of the fridge or in the produce aisle at the grocery store.
Come join me and my co-hosts, Sarah of Play to Learn with Sarah, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together, enjoying it and learning something along the way.

You’ll find so many more ideas on the #KidsintheKitchen Pinterest Board.

  1. That’s a great way to get the veggies and protein in first thing. My kids are still too young and picky but hopefully in a few years they’ll like eggs – although one will eat hard boiled eggs.

  2. Such a great idea! I don’t know if my kids would add veggies to their eggs, but they do love to add bacon, sausage or ham! 😉

  3. That sounds like a great idea! Most mornings all my kids want is cereal. It drives me nuts because I know that they should be eating a healthier breakfast. My husband and I tried cooking more healthy options for breakfast but they refused to eat it and tons of food got wasted. Maybe when my kids get older they will be less picky and I can try something like this.

    Have a terrific weekend!

  4. Great breakfast ideas. Now I feel like kicking up my breakfast routine.

  5. Jeez, I wish my kids were more open minded about trying new things. You’re lucky that your kids try new things!

  6. My daughter loves eggs in the morning- but she only wants them hardboiled. Ok- easier for me!

  7. I love this linky. So many great ideas. Thanks

  8. We are big time egg eaters at breakfast time. My kids are pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new food combinations. I will have to try to put more veggies in their breakfast.

  9. We usually save our eggs for dinner. My kids pick out the veggies when I add them. Ah well, you can’t win them all.

  10. You are making me hungry Miss Melinda! I haven’t eaten breakfast yet because I am working so hard at the computer! Can i come over for some of these dishes?

  11. My son is not much of an adventurous eater. He either eats a plain bagel or a waffle with peanut butter on it. My daughter though would try eggs or anything else I put in front of her. She loves to eat fresh fruit int he morning along with yogurt.

  12. I’m always looking for new and easy breakfast ideas for my four kids. Thanks for doing this link up!

  13. I love cooking with my kids. Breakfast is one of the meals that we haven’t cooked together much. Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. I love having my kids in the kitchen with me. We need more breakfast ideas – thanks!

  15. Great ideas! I need to change it up a bit, and get my kids eating bigger breakfasts! They aren’t so hungry in the am – so getting them to eat can sometimes be a chore!

  16. These are great ideas. My son is really into melon now for breakfast so it’s hard to get him to eat other things!

  17. These are wonderful breakfast ideas. Its great to get kids involved in their own nutrition. They are developing great habits that will serve them well as they grow.

  18. I think this is a great way to get kids more interested in healthy eating. They most likely will try many more fruits and veggies this way. Great idea!

  19. These are some great ideas. My granddaughter is so picky when it comes to food. I have to be creative.

  20. We’ve been adding pepperoni to our eggs. My boys love it!

  21. We’ve been adding cheese and turkey to our eggs, my little one loves it! She also loves cooking in the kitchen!

  22. Ashley M says:

    Im always looking for ways to switch things up in the kitchen and ofcourse, get the kids involved! Thanks for the tips.

  23. Great ideas! If you get the kids involved, they will eat different foods!

  24. That is a great idea. Breakfast is a pretty important meal of the day. Thanks for sharing your tips!
