I am at an all time loss as to what to feed my dd for breakfast-

she doesn't like Cheerios, Kix, Life etc- none of the bland plain cereals-

she will eat Raisen Bran Crunch, Fruit Loops etc but I don't like her having these every day!

She won't eat Oatmeal,eggs etc-

What do you all feed your kids for breakfast? She is 9 years old and I am so frustrated!

Thanks for any help!

What does she want for breakfest?
I would try to think of some protien alternatives that she might like. It doesn't have to be "breakfest" food.
Maybe some dinner leftovers?
Toast with sunbutter and banana?
Fruit and cheese and toast?

My son is also burned out on cereal.
I sometimes give him English Muffin with eggs on it.
I know eggs are a pain, but you can easily make scrambled eggs in the microwave and they come out fantastic. They get big and fluffy. Just scramble as usual, put in microwave, stir often.
I use a paper bowl because sometimes the eggs get stuck on the edge. If you use a glass bowl, rub a little oil on the bowl to make cleanup easier.
Also, he eats plain yogurt on cereal which is an aquired taste, but changes up the cereal.

I'm not sure what allergies you have, but we are only PA & TNA
Make pancakes/waffles from your favorite mix and freeze them then reheat.
Bagels & cream cheese
boiled eggs - then you can do them the night before
cheese toast
fruit and cheese
I hate breakfast time. I will let my children choose just about anything that has some protein & limited sugar though.
Good luck

My daughter likes soup for breakfast. Also grilled cheese sandwiches, soup, chips with melted cheese and bean dip.

My 10 year old son eats NO typical breakfast foods -- he eats dinner foods - stews, chicken and rice, tuna, soup, beef patties, etc. HE is PA/TNA - at 1 he was also egg allergic and had no typical breakfast foods. He tested negative at 3-1/2 after no exposure for that period -- but habits had been made. I make large amounts of food so there are morning leftovers.

we have only one cereal that we really, really like. it's honey bunches of oats and it is yummy - and safe for my PA girls too. otherwise my girls sometimes have bacon and waffles for breakfast (eggo, i think...two like choc. chip and the other prefers them plain). sometimes they will have a choc muffin (otis spunkmeyer????) with bacon or fruit and milk. they aren't really big on breakfast. it's a chore to get them to eat it at all which is why most of what i've listed here isn't probably all that healthy. i think the cereal is fairly good though - it's not really sugary.

We eat a lot of Honey Bunches of Oats here, too. Which type do you like? We eat about every variety, every family member having a favorite (I like the cinnamon one myself).

My son rarely eats. He's PA/TNA and allergic to seeds (sesame, poppy, sunflower).
Most of the time he drinks Pediasure and doesn't want anything else. I don't believe that Pediasure is that filling but I know it has vitamins and that's why I give it to him. When he was younger I gave him shakes in his bottle. I used milk, yogurt and jared baby fruit because he didn't like to eat solid food.
On weekends I make pancakes and I have them for the week. If I have extra I freeze them. He eats them sometimes in the evenings when he's hungry. Sometimes I make biscotti because they have lots of eggs in them. Someone told me to make a shake with carnation instant breakfast envelopes, mix with milk. Maybe even add a banana or strawberries.
Sometimes he eats Cookie Crisp cereal. He occasionally eats eggs but not for breakfast, sometimes for dinner. He eats a bit better for lunch and dinner. Sometimes he drinks chocolate milk. I would give him dinner or lunch food for breakfast if he ate it. It doesn't matter as long as they eat something healthy.
It's so hard when they are picky. But they somehow keep growing.

I have a 3 year old son who is PA, EA, TNA, and Milk allergic. He loves Kellogg's Pop Tarts (plain strawberry and blueberry with NO icing. He also likes Frosted Mini Wheats, Honeycombs, Kix and Cherrios cereal. He likes any type of fresh fruit (canned will do too) and I also order allergen free pancake mix from The Cravings Place or from Cherrybrook Kithen. Toast with soybean margarine is also a big hit.
