4 Breakfast Ideas to Set You Up for Success During the Week


Looking for an easy breakfast that you can make ahead of time, then reheat during the week?

Want to serve a nutrient-dense breakfast that will set your child up for success, allowing them to do their very best learning at school?

If I do just one thing to set myself up for a successful week, it is to prepare a breakfast that is easy to reheat. This allows me to quickly feed my girls a balanced, nutrient-dense breakfast – and get them out the door, on time! It also means that I don’t have to do any cooking at 6am, when I’m still half asleep; ensuring that I can sit and enjoy a hot cup of coffee and start my own day off strong.

These breakfasts doesn’t last all five weekday mornings, so I will either fry up an egg with avocado toast; blend up a smoothie; or make a yogurt parfait with plain yogurt, frozen blueberries, and a low sugar granola when I don’t have a breakfast on hand. If you’re looking for more easy breakfast ideas, check out this post.

Here are the four quick and easy breakfast recipes I rotate every week for a month, then start over again.  All of the recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, with the exception of the Sweet Potato Quiche, which contains cheese.

If you have a child who is hesitant to try new foods, give these three tips a try:

  1. Involve your child in making the recipe! I have often found through my kids cooking classes that kids are often more eager to dive into something that they have made. Cooking is also a great bonding activity to do with your child. You can read about the many other benefits of getting your kids in the kitchen, here.
  2. Give our Taste-o-Meter a try. This is an amazing tool to add to your parenting toolbox. Instead of asking your child to take a bite, say “tell me what you’d rate this!”  This turns trying a new food into a game, by both making it fun and taking the pressure off. This tool can be a game changer for many parents who struggle with their kids’ picky eating. You can download it for FREE here.   
  3. While you’re there, be sure to download our FREE Picky Eater Guide! It includes our top 10 tips to raising healthy eaters, plus a bonus smoothie recipe!

We hope you’ll add one of these delicious breakfast to your family’ s rotation! If you found these tips helpful, share them with a friend.

Hi, I'm Misa! I'm a certified health coach, educator, mom of 2 girls, and a wife. I enjoy exercising, cooking, being outdoors, playing with my family, and a night out with my girlfriends. My favorite place is the beach. I feel very lucky to live on the Seacoast with miles and miles of coastline to explore. Prior to staying at home with my girls, I was a first grade teacher for close to 10 years. I recently took a leap of faith, and decided to turn my passion for nutrition and my experience as an educator into a business! My mission is to help families make small, sustainable changes with their nutrition to improve their health. I offer virtual kids cooking classes to help empower kids in the kitchen and show them that food can taste delicious AND be good for us! I especially love working with families of picky eaters, offering them practical tools to add to their toolbox, helping to shape young tastes to appreciate real food.
