gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 6 year old is gluten free & oat free, doesn't like eggs or any other breakfast meat besides bacon.  I need help with breakfast ideas!  I feel like all I can get in her are pancakes, yogurt, chex cereal, and bacon.  Does anyone have any ideas for me?

Thanks!

Peanut butter on apple slices or bananas. Waffles. Hash browns - shredded potato. Have you tried just giving her egg whites -- no yolk? Maybe she would like them. Why does breakfast always have to be traditional breakfast food? How about a PBJ for breakfast or a BLT? How about tacos or burritos?

Why not leftovers from dinner?  Grilled cheese?  I like to take cold cuts and lay them on a plate, then sprinkle with some cheese, microwave to melt, roll up and eat.  Or some plain chicken on a corn tortilla with cheese, red pepper ( or tomato if she likes) microwave and fold up. PB on crackers.  

but , lots of people eat the same breakfast every single day.  So maybe she is OK?

Quinoa or amaranth sprinkled with nuts, raisins & a bit of sugar; you could even crumble bacon on top. Grits.

Pocono cream of buckwheat.

My DD likes a less traditional breakfast sometimes such as gluten-free ravioli or perogies.  She also loves Rudy's gluten-free cheese bread.  gluten-free crackers or matzo with peanut butter, cream cheese or Nutella are also popular.  And for a real treat, there's always Lucky Charms which are now gluten-free.

I would be careful with  Cheerios and Lucky Charms if the child has Celiac.  GM doesn't have a very good record of actually testing to see if the mechanical sorting eliminated the wheat/ gluten.  Perhaps they will be more consitant in the future as I believe I have heard that the FDA was investigating.

I agree!

What about a smoothie?  You can add nut butters or protein powder.  Avocado, coconut milk,  spinach, carrots, and cooked sweet potato can be added without even noticing they are in there to amp up calories and nutrients.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye.  :(

We make a bowl if brown rice, kinda like oats.  I cook up a big pot of short grain brown rice...long grain isn't as good for breakfast, in my opinion...but then I keep the cooked brown rice if the fridge.  In the mornings, I put a serving of brown rice into a saucepan with a little milk sub ( we use watered down canned coconut milk, but we've used other milk substitutes in the past...or people who can tolerate real milk could use that), brown sugar and cinnamon, or else maple syrup, honey, etc., just to taste, then we add raisins, diced apples, blueberries, or whatever...sometimes I add walnuts, etc..  Eat it in a bowl like oats...tastes pretty good for breakfast.

another pancake recipe you may want to try that is really easy and fluffy is:

mix 1,5 cup cooked rice, 1 ripe banana, 2 eggs and some cinnamon in a food processor or with any other tool that will blend the rice. Then make really small pancakes from it so they are easy to turn.

The result is the easiest fluffiest sweetest pancakes ever! 

However, I would not recommend eating these pancakes too often, eating more than 3 eggs per week is not healthy. 
Let me know if you try this recipe :)
