Nest Moms Know: Breakfast Ideas

Nest hosts a Tea Collection give-away on our Facebook page most Tuesdays. We try to ask questions that will enrich our community. We always appreciate your input! If you would like to suggest a question, please email us at

These are questions we ask every year and update with new content. We organize all the responses on our directory page here.


Our question:

Bored with breakfast? Any new ideas or suggestions – what do your kids eat for breakfast?

Your answers:

1. Fruit ke-bobs dipped in yogurt.  Something about that toothpick that appeals! For an extra treat, add hunks of waffle. (2014)

2. Sushi inspired banana roll: lightly coat full banana with agave or honey, then roll the banana in crushed Rice Krispies, slice and serve! (2014)

3. Toad in a hole (egg inside a piece of toast!) (2014)

4. French toast (2014)

5. Oregon-inspired rice cereal: leftover brown rice with warm milk. Make a toppings bar of: maple syrup, cinnamon or nutmeg, raisins and nuts. Little ones can create their own breakfast adventure! (2014)

6. Go out!  Snooze is a fave. (2014)

7. Pancakes with rainbow sprinkles & chocolate chips! (2014)

8. Icelandic yogurt and a fruit/veggie smoothie (2014)

11. Egg muffins: basically scrambled eggs baked in a muffin tin with add-ins like… Bacon, vegetables (sautee a bit on the stovetop first… onion, red pepper, broccoli, spinach mushrooms etc.), and cheese. Throw them in a ziploc and reheat in the microwave for breakfast all week. (2014)
