Breakfast Ideas Kids Love: the Breakfast Board

In honor of back to school, I am sharing breakfast ideas kids love! Today, it’s all about the breakfast board. Tomorrow, I am sharing my recipe for cinnamon roll pancakes!

A breakfast board is a variety of breakfast foods thoughtfully arranged on a board. It’s a great way to serve family or friends for birthdays, weekend brunch or Christmas morning. While they are great for special occasions and entertaining, we love breakfast for dinner in our home, too.

Theme your Breakfast Board

Whether I’m styling a tablescape or decorating for a party, I love a theme. This particular breakfast board is all about pancakes. However, you can gear your board towards waffles, French toast, oatmeal, yogurt parfait, bagels…or a smorgasbord of everything breakfast. The possibilities are endless and that’s what makes boards so fun! After you choose a theme, get a variety of toppings and sides to pair with the main dish. For example, fresh fruit, meats, dried fruit, nuts, jams, spreads or flavored syrups.

In addition to a theme, I love to color coordinate! Therefore, even the berries I chose are blue and green to match the table decor. You certainly don’t have to be that extra. Just have fun with it. I do recommend using a variety of colors and textures of food to make the board interesting to the eyes and tastebuds. Basically, think of the 5 food groups to create a well balanced food board.

Build your Breakfast Board

  1. Gather everything you need including a large wooden board, platter or tray, small bowls and food.
  2. Wash and cut any fruit. Pour toppings into small serving bowls or pitchers, as necessary.
  3. Prepare any food that needs cooked.
  4. Arrange everything onto the board. First, place larger items like bowls or pancakes. Lastly, add fruit to fill in.

Breakfast Tacos with Pancakes

Another fun breakfast idea kids love are breakfast tacos. However, these aren’t your typical tacos. Instead of tortillas, use pancakes. Simply, place all your fixings on a board. This offers lots of variety, so everyone can choose what they eat. Therefore, its great for brunch or slumber parties. Here are a few favorite combinations:

  • yogurt and berries
  • bacon, eggs, and blueberry syrup
  • Nutella and sliced bananas
  • sausage, peanut butter and maple syrup
