7 Healthy Back to School Breakfast Ideas:

1. Protein Stuffed Pita

Take a piece of pita shell and stuff with a little low fat shredded cheese and turkey. Warm in the microwave for 45 seconds until melted. This breakfast is perfect for on the go and still packs a huge protein punch.

2. Peanut Butter Waffle

You don’t need a knife and fork to eat these waffles! Just warm whole grain waffles and spread low fat peanut butter on them. They are easy to hold and the protein in the peanut butter will fuel your child all day.

3. Cereal Trail Mix

In a small bag, mix a variety of your child’s favorite cereal. Toss in raisins or nuts and you have a tasty cereal trail mix they can take with them on the way to school. Choose a cereal high in fiber and they will really have a great day!

4. Muffin Frittatas

Whip up a few eggs, add ½ cup of milk, add low fat cheese and some chopped veggies, then pour into a muffin pan. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until firm. Pop the frittatas out of the pan and you have a hot tasty breakfast ready to go.

Dress up traditional oatmeal with a few teaspoons of sugar free jelly. Make swirls and shapes and the dive in. The oatmeal is filling and the jelly gives it a sweet kick kids will love.

  1. I’ve done your pita idea and your rice cake idea in slightly varied ways, and now I need to try that jellied oatmeal next!

  2. Protein Pita! Very smart!!

  3. These all sound great! I just can’t get my kids to eat in the mornings..

  4. Great ideas! My son is so picky, and he (like me) has to be awake for a bit before he can eat, so school mornings are really tough. I know it is important for him to eat before school, but he just won’t/can’t. And unfortunately, if I force him, he often times throws up. Really. :( He starts the 5th grade this year but I’ll be homeschooling him through middle school, so at least he will eat breakfast before we start lessons. :)

  5. I like the pita idea – had not thought of using them for breakfast.

  6. I wish I could get my kids to eat some of these, I can’t get them to do breakfast a lot of the time.

  7. these are all great and quick breakfast fixes. Surprisingly, I’ve never tried jelly in oatmeal. sounds super yummy though

  8. I love muffin frittatas!

  9. Great ideas. Nobody is in school here but we’re still always on the lookout for quick breakfast ideas.

  10. Great ideas! We’re usually rushed and just grab cereal.

  13. These all sound so delicious!

  14. My boys love peanutbutter waffles! I can’t believe that we will be going back to school in 5 short weeks!

  15. Thank you so much for those great ideas. I’m so terrible at coming up with exciting breakfast foods for the kids. I really appreciate this post!

  16. Love these ideas. I’m going to have to try a few of them!

  17. Love the pita idea, you could even throw in some egg whites for extra protein.

  18. Peanut Butter Waffles – yes please! What a yummy and healthy breakfast!
