5 Quick and Healthy Gluten-Free Breakfasts Kids will Love

Skipping the morning meal is no way to shave time off the a.m. routine. In fact, allowing the kiddos to skip out on breakfast can set them up for more than just a rumbling tummy later in the day.

Kids need at least a bite of something nutritious each morning within an hour of waking to refuel their fast-growing bodies and to recharge their active developing brains. Sending them off without a nutritious nibble could mean they go hours before an opportunity to eat comes along. But who are we kidding? Even the most organized parents get caught in the morning hustle occasionally. Especially when we’re navigating a gluten-free (or other “free”) special diet!

When those days come, be ready with a quick and healthy gluten-free breakfast your kids will love…and you’ll be proud to serve them!
5 Quick and Healthy Gluten-Free Breakfasts Kids will Love

Click the name of each breakfast for the recipe.

1. Mini Egg Muffins ~ For those of us who are able to eat eggs, this is a total win every time! You can make them ahead and refrigerate or freeze these bite-size egg muffins for a super-fast, protein-packed breakfast on the go!

2. Strawberry Lemonade Muffin Cookies ~ Cookies?! for breakfast? Of course, when they’re packed with nutrients and protein, cookies can make the perfect breakfast. These delicious soft and moist fruit spread topped muffin cookies have a secret ingredient parents will love and kids will never discover! ;)

3. Rocky Road Sundae ~ What kiddo could resist this decadent looking “treat” before heading off for school? In fact, you may be tempted to try one yourself! Go ahead… it’s all good.

4. Apple Cheddar Pizza ~ Sometimes, a name can mean everything. Call it pizza, they’re likely to say, Yes, please! and gobble it up. Why wouldn’t they when a healthy breakfast tastes this good?! And with all the dairy-free “cheese” and gluten-free tortilla options available, this is one most can enjoy!

5. PB & J Milk Shake ~ So, we can call it PB & J, but for those of us with nut allergies, we won’t use peanut butter to make this twist on a familiar flavor combo. That doesn’t mean we’ll miss out on the kid favorite flavor, though! Substituting sunflower seed (or other nut or seed butter, if needed) allows us to recreate a familiar flavor without the allergens. (Of course, we can sub dairy milk with our favorite dairy-free milk, too!)

What are your favorite kid-friendly gluten-free ways to start the day when the day gets off to a rushed start?

  • Dawn Robertson: The only tropical relief I have found is from Biofreeze. Every few hours I spray my itchy splotchy rash and I get a few hours of peace. Icy Hot or other products will menthol may work too. View Post
  • Peggy Schulz: Hello, I am trying to find a doctor or dermatologist in Oregon (preferably Medford area) that specializes in DH/Celiac. After going to 5 docs over a couple years, all think I have eczema and even athlete foot or food allergy, spent over $3000 out of pocket for allergy tests etc., I figured out what I have via google! Oh did I tell you I always told my doctors I have celiac. And I always said I have a feeling it an internal issue, not an allergy. And always told them the itch is not normal, it itches to the bone! Not one ever mentioned DH! Apparently I am getting cross contamination, so now staying home for every meal, not eating out, even at friends homes. I would sure like a doctor who 'get's it'!
