Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and it’s also the busiest. Most parents are trying to juggle getting their kids up and ready while preparing themselves for work as well and making a healthy breakfast for your children becomes more and more difficult every day. We understand how busy life can be, but providing your kids with a nutrient-packed breakfast that will give them the energy they need to enjoy the day is very important. For that reason, we’ve compiled 9 quick, easy and healthy breakfasts ideas your kids will love.

Check out the 9 recipes below and work them into your weekly meal planning next week!
