5-Minute Breakfast Board for Kids

Rate This Recipe

While I repeatedly tell parents that their worth has nothing to do with what their kids eat or don’t eat…this breakfast board will definitely make you feel like a rockstar. There’s something about taking the components and putting them out in a beautiful spread that really adds a special and fun touch to the meal and also puts kids in charge, which can help them eat new and different foods. And the parents are still in charge of the what – so we’ve included a variety of nutritious and balanced foods.

If you love eating from boards (who doesn’t?!), be sure to try my mini charcuterie board, brunch charcuterie board, or Mediterranean charcuterie board next time.

This breakfast board is sponsored by . I’m excited to partner with them in 2022, especially because we use their products every single week. (If you’ve ever seen my Costco hauls, you’ve seen me recommend their sausages in BULK!)

Today features one of our favorites – Jones Dairy Farm . This breakfast sausage is fully cooked, for fast and easy preparation and is made with just a few ingredients. It’s juicy and delicious and is also Certified Gluten-Free and allergen friendly, which is especially helpful for families that need to pay close attention to ingredients and allergens.

Ingredients to make breakfast board for kids.

How to Make a 5-Minute Breakfast Board

This board is designed to be EASY and take just 5 minutes to prep:

  • Cook sausage. Pan frying the sausage tastes best, but we also microwave them frequently. If the sausage are thawed, you can pan fry them in 5 minutes while you get everything else prepped.
  • Prep other components. Cook mini pancakes and wash and cut any fruit.
  • Assemble boards. Place the components out on a board or small sheet pan.

More Breakfast Board Ideas

If you’d like to switch up any of the components, here are some ideas:

  • Protein – Try some of the other Jones Dairy Farm sausages like chicken or turkey links, hard boiled eggs, and Greek yogurt are good protein sources.
  • Carb – Try mini blueberry muffins, apple oat bars, or small pieces of toast.
  • Fruit – Use whatever fruit is in season or whatever you have stocked.

Prep Ahead Instructions

If you want to prep any of this ahead of time, here are a few ideas:

  • Thaw sausage in refrigerator
  • Wash and cut fruit
  • Set out any dishes and board or sheet pan

How to Serve a Breakfast to Kids

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

Meals like this one are a fantastic way to provide opportunities for nutritious foods without any pressure. You’re deciding what to serve, but ultimately letting them make the decisions on what to eat, which is actually one of the most helpful things you can do.

If you’re worried about your kids getting protein at breakfast, put something like a breakfast sausage out…and then see what happens. I talk more about this in my breakfast protein hack for kids.
