We would all love to give our kids a nourishing breakfast everyday with hours of thought and effort gone into it, but we know what it’s like to be a busy mum. Preparing breakfast for the kids is just one task of many you need to complete before rushing out the door. We have some nutritious recipes to share with you that will save you a ton of time and are guaranteed to be a hit with your children too.
Peanut Butter and Banana Roll
This breakfast is so easy, you don’t even need a full recipe! All you need is one tortilla wrap, a spread of peanut butter, and a banana. Add the ingredients and roll the wrap and voila! You have a healthy breakfast that will take under 5 minutes to prepare. It’s also portable so your child can enjoy it in the car or bus if you are really in a rush.
Overnight OatsBeing a little organized the night before and prepping some oats in the fridge will give you an extra couple of minutes in bed in the morning, which is always a plus in our minds. This Oatmeal making is extremely nutrient dense, which is exactly what children need during stages of growth and development. Depending on your child’s preferences, you can add his favourite toppings and flavours.

Sneaking in the vegetables you want them to eat in smoothies without them knowing is a great way of making sure they are happy, but also eating well. The colour of this Orange Carrot Smoothie is guaranteed to please your child, and it has the perfect balance of fruit and vegetables to taste great and be good for them at the same time.

This Egg and Cheese Muffin recipe is a nutritional powerhouse for your child, packed with protein and calcium for healthy growth and strong bones. You can make this recipe in batches and freeze for days when you are running super late too.
