    Breakfast for children who don't eat eggs or dairy?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    My husband and I are switching over to primal eating slowly, and we want to switch our entire household during February. We are trying to eat meals that we already eat, but leaving out the side of starch.

    I have a 2 yo who is allergic to dairy and will only eat eggs scrambled once in a while. He doesn't like meat or most vegetables and nut butters wind up smeared all over the place instead of being eaten. Also, a 6yo who is dairy intolerant and refuses to eat eggs unless she can dip toast in the yolk. She eats a small variety of veg, and a little meat.

    They both love fruit, sugar and starch. Their favorite breakfasts are toast with jam and oatmeal with cinnamon and honey. I am trying really hard to come up with some more ideas that my picky little eaters will enjoy for breakfast.

    Thank you!

    I'd serve fruit and keep offering it with uncured ham or bacon. If they eat the meat, good; if not, more for you. I bet if you keep putting in on their plates they start eating it eventually.

    What do they eat for lunch/dinner? Breakfast doesn't have to be "breakfast" foods. Smoothies can be made to suit most palates-coconut milk, spinich, a couple of raw eggs, and a handful of berries. Or almond milk, nut butters and a frozen banana.

    Hunger is the best spice.

    When they get hungry enough, they'll eat eggs.

    For lunch and dinner they usually eat fruit and a little bit of whatever we are having. DS eats a LOT of oatmeal and fruit. DD eats a lot of peanut butter or almond butter sandwiches. She has SPD (as do I) and certain textured foods totally freak her out-- like meat. I am starting to lose my mind heh. DD will do almond butter on celery but DS eats mostly grilled chicken and organic processed carby crap. I always put veggies on their plates before anything else in the evenings, but DS usually wont touch them. It honestly drives me crazy. It is even harder now that he has stopped nursing because I knew that when he was nursing, at least he was getting some nutrition.

    Someone I respect is a veteran pediatric nurse who adores children and is widely considered somewhat of a guru on them. Her view on things like my kid won't eat x is that the parent just caved too soon. She says the same thing about Mark's son who stopped eating meat very early.

    They won't touch a frittata if there are eggs or veggies visible.DS will pick through it for anything he likes, but DD will turn her nose up at it. They love pancakes and waffles. Does anyone know if primal versions freeze well? I know it is going to take just removing everything nonprimal, but I just want to have a few good ideas around before that comes to pass.

    I am really worrying about it, and I know the answer seems obvious... starve them until they give in... but I don't really like that answer LOL

    I also really like the smoothie idea. I am personally trying to limit sugar intake, so I hadn't thought of smoothies.

    Sweet potato cubes stewed in coconut milk with a little cinnamon and nutmeg
    Chicken soup is great for breakfast

    Before I gave up nuts, I used to eat this and loved it:

    1. Meat and liquid from 2 fresh, young coconuts
    2. 2-3 cups of soaked almonds
    3. 2 apples, cut into pieces
    4. 5 figs
    5. cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste

    Blend together until the consistency of oatmeal. It keeps in the fridge for at least a week.

    I'm not so sure about this. There is also a school of thought that if you have a child who is generally a good eater, but refuses to eat a couple of food items there is a good chance they have a food intolerance. Eggs don't sit well with a lot of people. Kids can't necessarily make the connection that they don't feel great after eating a certain food item, but they may develop a dislike over time.
