Breakfast is brain food, but it can be a challenge to feed the kids healthfully and get out the door in time for school. These 15 simple on-the-go breakfasts will give your kids the energy to get through the morning — without sucking up your time, too.

OnTheGoBreakfast_DressedUpYogurt_P_newDressed-up Yogurt

This is a quick way to add sweetness and crunch to plain yogurt. You’ll get the nutritious benefits of yogurt without the excess sugar so often found in flavored yogurts.

What you need:
7 oz container plain yogurt (I recommend Greek yogurt)
1 Tbsp. raspberry jam (or any other favorite – raspberry just happens to be mine)
1 tsp. honey
2 Tbsp. toasted almonds, roughly chopped

Combine all ingredients in the yogurt container. Grab a spoon and go!

Extra: Any jam or nut combination can be added. Pair strawberry jam with pistachios for a colorful alternative.

OnTheGoBreakfast_KickedUpQuesidilla_P_new Kicked-Up Quesadilla

These healthy quesadillas get a bright, fresh kick from the addition of tangy Granny Smith apples. Prepped and ready in less than 5 minutes, it’s the perfect meal to munch as you head out to the car.

What you need:
2 flour tortillas (regular or whole-wheat)
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar
several thin slices of a Granny Smith apple

Sprinkle an even layer of cheese over one tortilla. Scatter the apple slices on top of the cheese and top with the remaining tortilla. Microwave for 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. For a crisper tortilla, use a large skillet and crisp for 1-2 minutes on both sides, until the cheese is melted. Cut into 6-8 wedges.


Breakfast Pizza Margherita

Now you can let the kids have pizza for breakfast with this healthy English muffin-version. The tang of the tomatoes, the creaminess from the cheese and the fresh burst of basil are just as delicious in the morning.

What you need:
1 whole wheat english muffin
1 large slice of tomato
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
*optional fried egg
1 tsp fresh basil, finely chopped

Turn on your broiler.

Top one half of the English muffin with the sliced tomato and then shredded mozzarella. Place it on a baking sheet, along with the other half of the English muffin. Slide under the broiler. Broil until the cheese is melted and browned in places. Remove from the oven and add the fried egg, if desired, and the fresh basil. Top with the other half of the English muffin.

Greek flavors wake up the tastebuds in the morning without a lot of fat or calories. This handheld breakfast powers kids up with a good mix of protein, carbs and even a serving of vegetables.

What you need:
1 tsp. oil
2 Tbsp. chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped red bell peppers
2 eggs
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp. store-bought hummus
1 pita, cut in half

Crack the eggs in a small bowl and whisk with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside. Add oil to a small non-stick skillet. Saute the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add in the eggs and quickly stir all the ingredients together and let them cook completely, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and top with feta cheese. Spread 1 tablespoon of the hummus on each half of the pita. Fill the pita with the eggs.

OnTheGoBreakfast_TortillaWrap_2_P_new_0Tortilla Wrap

Use any leftover vegetables you have in your fridge in this south-of-the-border treat.

What you need:
1 egg, cooked any way you like it
1 Tbsp. shredded cheese
Diced avocado and tomato
1 flour tortilla

Place egg, cheese, avocado and tomato into the tortilla. Wrap as you would a burrito. Serve with fresh salsa if you wish.
