Back to School Breakfast Ideas for Teens (and Adults!)
Breakfast gets missed in the rush of school mornings for many sleepy teens.
Here are a few quick breakfast ideas for growing teens that may make your mornings more pleasant:
“I have no time”
- Fruit and Nuts
Toss a few handfuls of nuts or dry cereal (e.g. Shredded Wheat, Chex or Cheerios) in a cup or baggie, grab an apple and go!
- Sandwich and Fruit
2 slices bread, 1-2 tbsp. peanut butter (or 1 slice of cheese or meat), 1 banana
Make the sandwich the night before and it’s ready to take on the run.
- Muffin and Yogurt
1-2 small muffins and a carton of yogurt
Make muffins on the weekend to grab during the week
- Trail mix
In a paper cup or small bag, mix:
1/4 cup nuts & seeds,
1/2 cup dry cereal or pretzels,
2 Tbsp dried fruit
“I have 10-15 minutes”
- Avocado Toast
Slice or mash 1/2 avocado on 2 slices whole wheat toast
If time, top with 1-2 cooked eggs or 1/2 cup cottage cheese
Enjoy with a glass of milk or an apple to complete the meal
Blend 1 cup frozen fruit(mango is a favorite at our house), 1 cup milk/yogurt/kefir
(add a splash of water or juice to thin if needed)
Think outside the box; a taco or beef stew can make a great breakfast too!
