A list of 18 month old toddler breakfast ideas based on what my toddler has been eating this month!

I’ll be the first to admit that breakfast is not my favorite meal of the day to spend time in the kitchen preparing an elaborate meal. But, there are some ways to feed your toddler a quick and nutritious breakfast without a lot of time and effort.

Below are some ideas for toddler breakfasts based on what my kids ate around 18 months old.

Favorite Feeding Supplies

Before we get started I wanted to share some of my favorite toddler feeding supplies that make breakfast (and all meal times) a little more manageable! These are in no way necessary to serve your toddler meals, but can help make it easier, more fun, and having the right supplies can help with picky eating tendencies as well.

Pillowfort Kids Plates – we have had these for many years and they are the perfect size for toddlers and young kids! They have held up great in the dishwasher and come in fun colors.

EZPZ Mini Play Mat – a fun flower-shaped suction plate that is perfect for snack time, snack-style meals, and picky eating. My kids all love when I bring out this plate! It’s made of silicone and is non-toxic and dishwasher safe.

18 Month Old Toddler Breakfasts

Toddler Breakfast #1: Veggie Muffin

We love Veggies Made Great muffins for a quick and easy breakfast or snack idea. These are stored in the freezer and heat up in about 60 seconds. Perfect for young toddlers or picky eaters since they are packed with veggies and you would never know! Side of mandarin orange.

18 Month Toddler Breakfast #2: Eggs & Toast

Eggs and toast served separately, or cooked together like “eggs in a basket”. I normally cut into strips for my young toddlers so it’s easier to pick up and eat. Side of bacon.

Toddler Breakfast Idea #3: Pancake dippers

Make breakfast fun by serving a snack plate! Pancakes cut into strips with sides of maple syrup for dipping, avocado, blueberries (squish or halve under 2 or so), string cheese, and strawberries.

18 Month Meal Idea #4: Broccoli & Cheese Eggs

Mix in veggies like broccoli into scrambled eggs for extra nutrition and flavor. Side of our favorite no sugar added smoothie melts from Amara Organic Foods (they have great options for yogurt melts and dairy-free melts as well).

Easy 18 Month Breakfast #5: Yogurt Bowl

Whole milk greek yogurt (plain if you can, or sweetened) topped with fruit like diced strawberries and bananas. Chia seeds, flax seeds, and hemp hearts are other great nutritious toppings! My kids love theirs topped with sprinkles!

Toddler Breakfast #6: Peanut Butter Toast Strips & Eggs

Whole wheat toast topped with a thin spread of peanut butter (other nut butter or sun butter can work too!) and then cut into strips for easy grasping. Side of scrambled cheesy eggs.

18 Month Breakfast #8: Avocado Toast

A great quick, healthy, and nutritious option! My kids also love this topped with everything but the bagel “EBB” seasoning. Side of blueberries (smush or halve under 2 or so).

Toddler Breakfast #9: Strawberry Banana French Toast Sticks

French toast sticks naturally sweetened and great for babies and toddlers! Mash and stir fruit like strawberries and bananas into the egg batter, dunk sliced bread, and fry on a griddle like normal French toast. This is one of my kids favorite meals of all time!

Toddler Breakfast Idea #10: Mini Breakfast Burritos

Mix any/all of your toddler’s favorite veggies or veggies you have left over in your fridge into eggs for quick and easy breakfast burritos. Some of our favorites to include are: sweet potato, zucchini, bell pepper, and broccoli. Wrap small tight burritos for young toddlers or serve deconstructed.

Toddler Breakfast #11: Waffle Strips

Make homemade or frozen waffles and cut into strips to make fun finger foods. Side of greek yogurt for dipping and thinly sliced apples.

18 Month Toddler Breakfast #12: English Muffin

Instead of toast, try an english muffin topped with peanut butter, other nut butter, jelly, or grass-fed butter. I like to cut into strips to make it easier to bite and chew. Sides of grapes (halve or quarter under 4 or so) and blueberries.
