If you’re looking for breakfast ideas for 1-year-olds, I’ve got you covered. Below I’ve compiled a simple list of breakfast recipe ideas you can make for your 1-2 year old.

One thing I’ve learned when it comes to feeding little ones is that breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. You can jazz up your everyday oatmeal with toppings like peanut butter or smashed fruit.

You can turn scrambled eggs into egg cups, and fresh fruit into fruit smoothies. Get creative by allowing your toddler to assist you in the kitchen. They can pour their own milk or even crack their own egg. Check out these 18 breakfast recipe ideas for 1-year-olds.

My Kitchen Essentials

  • Wooden Spoons: I love using wooden spoons when I cook because they’re sturdy and don’t scratch my pans.
  • Cutting Board This is my absolute favorite cutting board. It’s the perfect size and thickness. Plus, it doesn’t slide while I’m working.
  • Parchment Paper: I don’t use parchment paper just for baking cookies. I use also use it for roasting veggies, meats, and more in the oven.
