3 Delicious Breakfast Ideas For Your Little One

By Stacey Segal, RD

There’s no need to complicate mornings with an elaborate breakfast. And who says vegetables need to be served only at lunch or dinner? Bring them out at breakfast too I say! Rules around food are so taxing and constraining. Try letting them go! If breakfast is a time of day when your little one eats well, then use this time to pack in some nutrition. Sometimes mornings are when babies are their most alert and playful, so it’s also a good time for them to be given the opportunity to explore the textures and tastes of food. Make food exploration an activity!
