Creative Breakfast Ideas

It can be a challenge to get your kids to eat a healthy breakfast. Cereal or donuts seem to be the popular choice simply because that’s what they’ll eat without a fuss. But what if you can make it fun with funny and creative breakfast ideas!

Bill and Claire Wurtzel have been creating funny breakfast food for for many years; eventually photographing and creating an inspiring book called Funny Food: 365 fun and healthy breakfasts. The book contains recipes, how-to’s, and lot’s of funny and creative food invention pictures. It’s based on the idea that playing with your food can actually be a great way to improve your children’s diets. Sitting on your kitchen counter, this book would be the perfect reminder to spend a little extra time making a healthy meal that your kid’s will actually look forward to.

creative breakfast ideas for kids

I could have never imagined you could create this many different creative breakfast ideas for kids with such simple ingredients; everything from funny fried eggs to silly pancakes. It’s like breakfast art! Slice and dice fruit to create funny faces on pancakes, waffles, toast, oatmeal, or cereal. Use nuts and green garnish–parsely, basil, spinach, cilantro–to add silly details. Cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, and leafy greens make for playful hair. Use round fruit and veggies, such as olives, blueberries, strawberry ends, and banana slices to make edible eyes. You get the idea. The possibilities are endless!
