Super Quick, Super Easy, Super Cheap - Breakfast Ideas For Kids!

Mornings are not these momma's favorites. I'm never ready to wake up when the kiddos do, I never get enough sleep throughout the night because of the baby, and even after getting up, I feel like I need to go back to sleep. This is why making breakfast in the mornings is when I look for something quick!

Here I have compiled a list of my cheap and easy go-to morning breakfasts for my kiddos for other non-morning mommas! Let's just dive right in!


Yes, you read that right. Good old fashion milk and cereal. Sometimes I'll add some fruit or yogurt with this as well, but most of the time my children just want the cereal. This is perfect for mornings where I'm running late or EXTRA tired.

Scrambled/Boiled Eggs

Scrambled eggs/boiled eggs are something I will make my girls in the morning when we have a bit more time to kill before getting our day started. Once again I normally pair this with a little fruit or yogurt but my children normally just eat the eggs and are done.


Oatmeal is one of those breakfasts that I only make on occasions when we have plenty of time for a bath after breakfast. For some reason, my middle child LOVES to finger paint with her oatmeal.

Muffin Pancakes

These little devils have saved my weekend mornings! Someone shared these with me on Facebook a few years ago and I love to continue spreading this amazing breakfast idea. You just pick which flavor, add 1 cup of milk and 1 egg, and boom! Yummy pancakes for everyone!

Cinamon sugar toast

If you haven't noticed this mom likes EASY and QUICK in the morning. This is another one of my super easy, and some say lazy, breakfast is cinnamon sugar toast. I use to eat this when I was as young as my children and always loved it!

Left Over Mashed Potato Cakes

Okay, I know what you must be thinking but hear me out! These are amazing and they help so that no food is wasted! You can make these on a morning your a little pressed for time but not running late, you can add them to any breakfast you would a hashbrown, and they are also good for the go! Just remove leftover mashed potatoes from the refrigerator, add some diced onion, a little garlic, and a pinch of pepper. Next, add 1 TBS olive oil to a pan, scoop mixture into the pan, and cook over medium-high heat until both sides are browned (about 20 minutes)! There you have it!

These aren't some "Betty Crocker" breakfast ideas but they are some "save momma some time and money" ideas that your children will love!
