Start off the day with creative breakfast recipes that get the seal of approval from kids. These recipes are simple, easy to eat, and great for busy parents to serve to kids during busy mornings. When it comes to the first meal of the day, make it count by enticing picky eaters to venture out of their comfort zone and get the nutrients they need, like fiber, calcium, and protein to ensure that they leave the table with full tummies and are ready to take on the day.
Mini Fruit-and-Yogurt Parfaits
Light and healthy, single-serving Mini Fruit-and-Yogurt Parfaits combine granola, yogurt, pomegranate seeds, fresh pineapple, and blueberries, and are perfect for breakfast or a snack.
PB&J Stuffed Multigrain Pancakes
Peanut butter powder is the secret to adding intense nutty flavor (without a lot of fat) to these jam-stuffed pancakes.

For tough-to-please kids, try serving breakfast for dinner. Pair this dish with a mixed fruit cup to round out the meal.
This slightly sweet, thick drink is a great snack or part of breakfast. You can also freeze it in ice pop molds for a refreshing and nutritious frozen treat.
Eggs and Bacon Breakfast Pizza
Bacon and eggs, those American breakfast staples, go Italian in this quick pizza. Be careful not to overcook the eggs--you'll want to sop up the golden yolk with your crust.
Peanut Butter Pancakes
Make your everyday pancakes a little more exciting by adding peanut butter as a flavor alternative. And nothing would be better on this finger food (our judges wasted no time with utensils) than jam or jelly in place of regular maple syrup.
