Birthday Breakfast Ideas to Kick Off & Celebrate Your Child’s Birthday
Breakfast is my children’s favorite meal of the day and they’ll often ask for “breakfast dinner” whether that’s a stack of pancakes or a stuffed omelette. Breakfast food is delicious and if anyone wants to debate that cold-hard fact, they’re going to have to take it up with my three children.
What I love about making a special breakfast when it’s someone in our family’s birthday, is that it kicks off the day of celebrating them in a fun, and very yummy way!
We celebrate birthdays from sun-up until sun-down and have a long list of birthday traditions we do for each person’s birthday.
Despite the food coma or sugar rush that kids taking running leaps off the couch, I’m still a proponent of starting the day with an extra special birthday breakfast to kick off the big and very important day.
