Anyone got some good on the go or easy and little mess breakfast ideas for toddlers? I have tried the dry cereal but Kerrington makes a mess plus I feel like my kids eat cereal to much sometimes.

We don't need breakfast on the go too much, so I don't have a ton of ideas.

If you're getting sick of just dry cereal, you could try putting together your own snack mix with dried fruit, small seeds if she can handle them, banana chips, etc...and maybe adding a little cereal to that.

Before Gavin was born, I took Aiden to work with me and he'd chow down on a whole banana in the car. As long as I got the peel away from him when he was done, it was mess-free; and it doesn't get much easier than a banana.

We eat on the go once a week and I hate doing it but I'm not going to wake the kids up earlier to feed them just to make them cranky and unpleasant the rest of the day.


This girl would eat a banana for every meal if we let her. The thing is she's not very clean wit them. She hates them being in the peel and will pick peaces off and eat them.

No help from me, sorry! We do the dry cereal a lot! Peyton loves it! She would munch on cereal all day long! There's really nothing else that Peyton would be able to eat in the car without making a mess.

We do bananas too. Could you lightly toast a waffle for her to take with her? I wouldn't think that would be too messy. Jed loves nutrigrain bars, but they are pretty crumbly.

I usually do dry cereal if we have to leave in a rush. Sometimes though I do a box of raisens...my kids love the yogurt covered raisens.
I love Racine's idea of trail mix...that sounds like a great idea!

I get organic yogurt tubes and put a straw in them for Violet. She can easily drink them and she doesn't make a mess at all.

Jamie almost always finishes his breakfast in the car now that he goes to preschool. I let him take waffles (cut into chunks) and pancakes in the car. I only put a tiny bit of syrup on the waffles so its not too messy and by the time we get in the car its soaked in and not too goopy anyway. Also at Sams Club I found these awesome individual packs of mini pancakes that have maple syrup already baked into them, so he gets some flavor without the sticky syrup. I had problems with his car seat's cup holder so I bought a clip on one at Walmart that comes with two little snack cups that you can put food in. Yes, the occasional chunk of waffle ends up in the car but for the most part its been much neater than I expected. I also peel a banana and break it into three chunks and put it in the snack holder.

Yogurt tubes are like Gogurt, they're just tubes filled with yogurt that is thinner. Yoplait makes the Gogurt ones (the Gogurt Simple has better ingredients) and then Stonyfield Farms and Trader Joes make organic versions.
