Birthday Breakfast Ideas for Kids

A birthday breakfast is such a fun way to make your little one feel special and loved on their birthday, especially if their birthday is mid-week with school or kindy, in lockdown or isolation or the day has plans that aren’t birthday focussed like errands or work.

There are lots of ways to create a special and memorable birthday breakfast. Just adding fun cake sprinkles and a candle to a normal breakfast will make it feel special and different, so here are our favourite fun Birthday Morning Breakfasts using sprinkles:

Birthday Waffles

A super fun and easy birthday treat, these waffles can be done 2 ways - made form scratch and adding cake sprinkles into the batter before cooking, or store bought and topped with sprinkles and whipped cream. Don’t forget the cherry or strawberry on top!
