5 Breakfast Ideas For Babies

Share this post:

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and well, my baby loves every meal of the day so I’m pretty confident she enjoys breakfast just as much as I do! The only problem is that I found myself feeding my daughter the same two breakfasts every morning and thought it was time to find quick and easy breakfast ideas for babies. I like to switch things up sometimes, especially when I find myself in a routine. It was time to find some new breakfast ideas for my baby girl.

My Standard Baby Breakfast Recipes

Below are my two go-to breakfast recipes for my 8 month old daughter.

1. Baby Cereal Mixed with Fruits and Yogurt

This is my basic go-to breakfast when I don’t want to think about what I’ll feed my baby girl. I have 4 baby cereals at home: rice cereal, oatmeal, barley and raspberry wheat cereal. Most mornings, I’ll either mash a ripe banana or unfreeze 1-2 cubes of homemade fruit, mix in some cereal and then add a tablespoon of 6% natural yogurt. As for the cereal, it really depends on my mood. Sometimes I’ll pick 1 cereal and other times I’ll mix a few cereals together. Instead of buying yogurt for babies which typically cost more because it says “baby” on it, I opt for Astro All-Natural Yogurt. I’ll add a sprinkle of cinnamon to top it all off. My daughter loves it!

2. Egg Yolk Mixed with Baby Cereal and Fruits

When I feel like it’s time to change things up, I smash up an egg yolk and then mix it with some fresh or frozen fruits that I unfreeze. Sometimes I’ll even add some cereal to give it more consistency.

These are my two quick and go-to breakfast recipes but I feel like it’s time to change it up again. Routine is good but it can drive you crazy. After reaching out to an online mommy group I’m part of, I’m introducing new breakfast recipes for my baby girl.

New Breakfast Ideas For Babies

Below are some breakfast ideas for babies I found on an online mommy group after asking for some inspiration.

3. Flourless Banana Pancakes

This recipe is quick and easy to do. I introduced it to my daughter this week and she absolutely loved it! I prepared the mix on the previous night so I wouldn’t have to do it in the morning and it was just perfect. Highly recommend it to all parents looking for new baby breakfast recipes.



4. An Egg Omelet Mixed with Vegetables

This is a great alternative to feed vegetables your baby doesn’t particularly enjoy. You can make a traditional omelette by cutting your vegetables in very small pieces (depending on your baby’s age). If your baby is still on purée, you can purée the vegetables and then mix them into your omelette. Omelettes are a great way to feed your baby vegetables they don’t particularly like.

5. Toast with Cheese

Another quick and easy option if your baby is over 8 months are toasts served with a soft cheese such as Kiri or Laughing Cow. Make sure to cut the toasts in pieces or cubes before serving.

    Great ideas!! I also find myself giving the same two things over and over. I try buying different cereals to change it up, but it gets repetitive still. I recently came across an interesting option for breakfast which consists of Cheerios soaked in applesauce or any fruit puree. That could be fun and different. I will try it out eventually. I will definitely try the pancake idea especially since 3 little teeth have made an appearance 😊 Thanks for sharing.

      I found myself in the same situation with the cereals. I’d mix them up but I mean, at the end of the day, it’s still just cereal! The pancakes were good!! I actually gave my daughter one and ate the rest for breakfast lol Will try your Cheerios recipe. I actually have some at home.

    My son pretty much skipped the mushy foods, but one of our go-tos is plain oatmeal with berries or fruits that we have around!
