What is good to feed my 12 month old for breakfast?

He doesn't really go for oatmeal or anything like that. His daycare got me giving him toast. What do some other moms give their 12 month old for breakfast?

  • By twelve months my toddler ate scrambled eggs, orange slices and toast. Another popular combination is an Eggo, melon, and apple juice. Homemade hashbrowns are good too. Toast is good - but isn't as nutritious as mixing it up. I usually substitute regular toast with a half of an English muffin with healthy and natural jam. If you've switched to cow's milk it's best to minimize the amount of milk - unless they just nibble at a meal. When my daughter 'skips' a meal, I substitute with 6-8 oz of milk. You may also start to have them take a multi-vitamin. My daughter currently takes half of a Flintone's daily. Word of advise - give vitamins in the morning (they are a boost of energy and will keep them up at night if taken too late.

    Good luck!

  • yogurt, eggs, bacon and sausage (but in small amounts), cereal with milk, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, ..................Just about anything you eat. Just in smaller portions.

  • My children LOVE Eggo waffles--especially chocolate chip and whole grain ones! No butter or syrup is needed--just let them eat them as is! Great for gnawing on, healthy, and easy to take with you on the go! :o)

  • My toddler loves Shreddies, porridge, fruit salad, Special K, or just some plain toast.

  • along with the waffles, cereal, pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, etc...
    French toast sticks
    half a bagel
    Also for the toast I put a little butter on it & mix sugar& cinnamon to sprinkle on top & he loved it.

  • DD is 13 months today and she's been eating pancakes, eggs, bacon, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, toast... you name it. I guess it depends on how many teeth they have.

  • eggs, but not every day. My daughter ate a one-egg omelette with shredded cheese and black beans about every 3 days at that age and LOVED it!
    cheerios with a little milk and fresh berries
    whole grain toast
    my daughter even ate avocado for breakfast...
    I'd avoid the fatty breakfast meats for now... he'll have plenty of time to become addicted to those like the rest of us. Avoid sugary cereal, pop tarts, muffins, etc. because kids very quickly develop a preference for these and won't want the healthy stuff.
    plain whole milk yogurt mixed with fresh or pureed fruit is great, too!
