Though it may be hard to believe, it’s already August which means soon kids will be heading back to school. It also means fall is fast approaching, and with it, the reappearance of some of our favorite fall flavors. When we thought about the coming school year and fall, we couldn’t help but also think of breakfast. Finding a healthy, kid-friendly breakfast to eat on school days can be a challenge. However, we think we’ve found the solution with these five easy and delicious recipes. They are some of the recipes we like best, and they are sure to become family favorites of yours.
Poached Eggs on Buttered Toast
This is about as simple as you can get when it comes to breakfast; eggs and toast. Many people have fond memories of their family’s version of this easy breakfast. In this recipe, the eggs are poached with apple cider vinegar to give the flavor a little punch.
Sometimes a healthy beverage in the morning is the way to go. In our Rainbow Smoothie, you can mix together seven of your favorite fruits and vegetables to create a unique and completely customized start to your day. The smoothie is also a great place to hide “invisible vegetables” like spinach to make sure kids are getting plenty of nutrition.
PB&J Quinoa Donuts
Created at the request of a friend, we love these donuts made from quinoa flour and almond butter. Topped with a touch of raspberry jam, they taste just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and only have 190 calories each.
There’s nothing better on a crisp fall morning than starting your day with a warm bowl of oatmeal. Instead of going for the instant variety, try making your own. This recipe ups the fall feel by adding pumpkin puree, which gives the oatmeal a pudding-like texture.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles
Biting into the crisp outside of a waffle and reaching the fluffy inside is one of the best breakfast moments ever. Our waffles use fresh apples and a touch of cinnamon for a great autumnal flavor. They also freeze well, so you can make a large batch and save some for another day.
