Inviting Breakfast Ideas For a Toddler

LG will turn two in a few weeks' time. And I hate to admit that his breakfast is painstakingly boring for me though he enjoys it. He has a variety spread for lunch and dinner but breakfast is mainly either Cerelac or cornflakes in various flavors or Sabudana khichdi or Idli or powdered beaten rice mixed in milk. I ensure that his breakfast is milk based so that the daily quantity of milk intake is there and breakfast has a huge share in it. Idli or Sabudana khichdi is just once a week otherwise it is milk-based breakfast.

I would appreciate if you have some breakfast ideas that I could introduce. The challenging task is getting LG to drink milk separately after an ordinary breakfast which is why I have made it a milk-based one until now. Any ideas most welcome.

You can try bread pudding. Here is an easy recipe
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 slice of bread (cut in small pieces, better still if you crush it using a mixer)
2 tablespoon sugar
Optional -cinnamon powder (1/2 tsp) or vanilla essence (2 drops)

Mix all the above ingredients together; beat it well using a fork/mixer.
Steam it for 10-15 minutes (just like idly).
Serve when cool.
My son loves pudding and I give it to him twice a week.

Also, if you are an egg-etarian you can make an omlette (1 egg, mix it with milk, any veggies you want, salt and pepper) you can grate some cheese on it once it is ready too! a wholesome breakfast!
