Healthy Breakfast Recipe Ideas for Kids

There’s a reason why breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s a source of energy and nutrients such as iron, potassium, calcium, carbs and more which kick-starts everyone’s day, it’s also almost 8 to 9 hours since one’s last meal (that’s why it’s called so, because one is breaking their fast) and also restores the level of glucose in one’s body! Plus skipping breakfast increases the chances of a person being overweight and eating fatty unhealthy food mid-day.

It’s important that kids start their meal with healthy breakfasts because they’ve got a long day ahead of them just like adults.. They’re jumping and playing, swimming and attending extracurricular activities not to miss out the classes in school. It’s imperative that their day start’s with the healthiest of foods such as avocadoes or chia seeds or quinoa which are rich in proteins, fibre and iron. They need these nutrients to keep up, be sharp, attentive in class, perform to the best of their capabilities and enhance their memory.

Milk is always a great way to start but below we’ve mentioned some fun, super quick, deviation from the normal but extremely healthy breakfast ideas for kids. Do give them a try!
