Keeping a stash of healthy breakfast foods in the freezer is my secret to stress-free mornings. I read somewhere that you shouldn’t feed toddlers the same food more than 3 days in a row, with the exception of fruits and vegetables, because that repetition encourages picky eating—I think this totally makes sense, so I try to feed Little Pea something different for breakfast each day of the week. I don’t know how I could do it without relying on freezer cooking!
Every other Sunday, I make a breakfast food that can be frozen for later. Some of our freezer staples are mini pancakes, baked oatmeal squares, healthy breakfast muffins, mini quiches, and these Baked Banana French Toast Sticks. Since I’m constantly replenishing our supply of food in the freezer, we never run out. Because most of these foods are grain-based, I round-out breakfasts with fresh fruit and whole milk yogurt.
