The first day of a new grade can be exciting, daunting, and everything in-between, for parents and kids alike. Food fuels us and can set students up right for a full day of learning and physical activities.
Best case scenario is to be super organized, and we are going to help you get there, with the best breakfasts for kids – elementary through high school – and we even have vegan and vegetarian options, too, from Overnight Oats, to homemade granola, savory egg bites, Green Smoothies, a tofu scramble – even Breakfast Cookies!
Pumpkin Cranberry Oat Breakfast Cookies
Cookies for breakfast? You bet, and we actually have several breakfast cookie recipes for you. This one is based on fiber-rich oats, canned pumpkin, and sweet/tart dried cranberries. The pumpkin seeds add fiber, too. Get the recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Oat Breakfast Cookies.
Overnight Oats & Chia
Overnight oats are hugely popular – and you can have them, even during the initial restrictive phase of the low FODMAP diet. Whole grain oats and chia seeds combined with unsweetened almond milk and a tiny bit of maple syrup (optional) are soaked overnight for this popular, hearty low FODMAP vegetarian breakfast. We show you many ways to garnish with fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds and more. All low FODMAP! Click here for the recipe.

Chocolate Granola with Almonds

Mini Frittatas Your Way
A frittata is like an open faced omelet, often cooked in a skillet. These mini frittatas are cooked in muffin tins, which not only provide portion control, but you can also make each one a new flavor combo. For non-vegetarian family members, we have add-in suggestions for them, too. We love these for breakfast or even as a high-protein snack. Add a hunk of low FODMAP bread alongside. Our article How To Choose Low FODMAP Bread will guide you. Click here for the recipe.
Olive Oil Muffins with Goat Cheese & Raspberries
These muffins are based on olive oil, which makes them particular soft. The flavor is not overly pronounced, but it is present and is complemented beautifully with goat cheese and sweet raspberries. Click here for the recipe.
