Kids Breakfast Recipes

Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Serve our Banana Breakfast Smoothie with a handful of whole-grain dry cereal or a granola bar for a filling breakfast.

Young Chefs Can:
• Peel banana
• Pour ingredients into blender with assistance

Older Chefs Can:

Blueberry Power Muffins with Almond Streusel

We call these “power” muffins because they’re loaded with B vitamins from whole-wheat flour, calcium from milk and yogurt, antioxidants from blueberries, and heart-friendly monounsaturated fat from almonds and canola oil.

Young Chefs Can:
• Measure blueberries and add to batter
• Sprinkle streusel over batter

Older Chefs Can:
• Combine dry ingredients
• Help spoon batter into muffin cups

Eggs With Ham, Cheddar, and Chives


  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • 10  eggs
  • 2  tablespoons  milk or water
  • 1  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4  cups  diced cooked ham
  • 1 1/2  cups  shredded sharp Cheddar
  • 1/3  cup  chopped fresh chives


  1. Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ham and sauté until browned.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour into the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, to desired doneness, 4 to 5 minutes, adding cheddar and chives just before the eggs are set.

    Great to see these recipes up and online, we're looking for recipes from other locations and this would be a network and collaboration for us. We have School Camp for the next week, but we will be back in touch again after that.
