My Top 5 Breakfast Picks from our Neocate Food Allergy Cookbook
Wheat-free Pumpkin Muffins (Page 6)
I chose this recipe because it will be a great breakfast for fall mornings! I also love it because pumpkins are a great source of beta carotene (Vitamin A), Vitamin C, Potassium and dietary fiber! Be sure that you get canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
Healthier Breakfast Cookies (Page 4)
It might sound strange that a nutrition specialist is recommending that you give your kids cookies for breakfast but these are not your average cookies! They are high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. There are also “optional additions” for the recipe that boost the nutritional value even more. You can skip or cut down on the sugar and chocolate chips to make them an even healthier breakfast choice.
Neocate Fiber-full Smoothie (Page 22)
This recipe is not actually in the “breakfast” section of our cookbook but I love smoothies for breakfast! They are packed full of nutrients and a great way to take breakfast on the go. I chose this particular smoothie recipe because it is a good source of dietary fiber, which most kids do not get enough of. (Tip: If you are having trouble getting your little one to take a medication or supplement that your doctor has prescribed, try mixing it in their smoothie before serving. The fruit does a great job of masking the taste.)
Baked Oatmeal (Page 2)
This will be a warm, filling breakfast for cold days as we head into fall and winter. Add some fresh fruit and this is a delicious, balanced, and healthy recipe that your little one will love.
Allergy-friendly Banana Bread Muffins (Page 6)
Banana bread is a classic comfort food. Your kids will love this allergy-friendly version.
Remember that you should always check the ingredients of these recipes to make sure they are appropriate for your little one’s food allergies.
