Toast Toppings: 20 Ideas for a Healthy Breakfast


Just by looking at our families meal plans, you would not realize that my kids actually eat toast every single day.  They also eat other foods that we prepare, but they always add toast..always!  So, with T-Week in full swing, I wanted to explore some variations on our favorite meal, breakfast!

Kids Favorite Toast Toppings

  1. Erica loves to get creative with fruit faces on her toast.  Her first creation yesterday was chocolate chip hair, banana eyes, strawberry nose, and apple mouth.
  2. Typical toppings: Most mornings we add honey or cinnamon!
  3. Flower Power.  Slicing strawberries lengthwise, and arranged in a fan gives the look of a flower.  So fun for tea parties, princess parties, or that special little girly girl!  toast with strawberries and bananas
  4. Applesauce Toast! I asked last night on twitter what favorite toast toppings were.  Among the replies was Maria (from Two Peas In Their Pod) who said she loved applesauce on toast. Maria posted a delicious looking recipe for rhubarb applesauce just today!
  5. Another twitter reply was from Healthy Kids Challenge for peanut butter/ Banana toast!  We love this too (except we dessertified it with a drizzle of chocolate).  chocolate banana peanut butter toast
  6. Homemade jam has always been a favorite of ours. We’ve never tried orange marmalade though as that is what @marygooch on twitter said was her favorite!
  7. Erica (my 10 year old) insisted on designing this Valentine special: Peanut butter, strawberries, and chocolate! MMMM.  She even took her own picture!strawberry chocolate peanut butter toast
  8. Mustard! Strange, I know.  My best friend all through high school would eat mustard toast for breakfast every day!
  9. Almond Butter, honey and granola! What a great combo, right?
  10. Poached Eggs on Toast! This combo of fat, protein, and whole grains makes a perfect balanced breakfast. (I tried to make a poached egg for the photo yesterday, and it was an absolute disaster!)
  11. Light Cream cheese and homemade jam. I always keep some spreadable cream cheese on hand. I love this stuff for wraps, sandwiches, toast, and dips!image
  12. Pureed pinto beans and grated cheese.  This doesn’t have to be for burritos only (or breakfast only for that matter).  Some people don’t like typical breakfast foods, and this is a great alternative.
  13. Mushroom Toast. I had this for the first time as a teenager in East Germany (before the wall came down)  It was so delicious, I can literally still taste it.  It had sautéed mushrooms, garlic,  and a sprinkling of cheese on top.  My kids aren’t keen on mushrooms yet, but I’m still trying.
  14. Toast Dippers.  You can have any variation of dipping sauce.  This dip is hummus, which is why we have the carrots to go with it.   I chopped the toast with my favorite crinkle cutter.Toast Dippers
  15. Fresh Tomatoes and Parmesan Cheese.  Bake this for a few minutes to get the cheese crispy. Works especially well with those who have a toaster oven.
  16. Nacho Toast.  Add salsa, green onions and cheese- then bake. The salsa I bought was super runny, or these would look better, I’m sure!  nacho toast
  17. Light cream cheese, raisins and cinnamon.  Mix these altogether and spread.
  18. Nutella and apples. Nutella is a mixture of hazelnuts, cocoa and sugar.  While it is a dessert food (sugar is the first ingredient), its fun to use on occasion.
  19. Laughing Cow Cheese wedge with cucumber slices.
  20. Hawaiian Pizza. Orange marmalade for a spread (optional), Pineapple tidbits, lean, nitrite free ham, and some cheese baked on top. hawaiian pizza toast

So, there you have it! Our 20 healthy ways to eat whole wheat toast.  What is your favorite way?

Instead of toast, I use rice cakes more, but I do love the almond butter, honey and WHEAT GERM mixture best :)


Wow, those are some great ideas! And poached eggs on toast totally brings back childhood memories. I had forgotten about that! We are stuck in cereal-land here, maybe we should venture into toast (or bagel) land a bit more often.


Fluffernutter! I spread peanut butter on bread, top with marshmallows, and broil in the toaster oven. I suppose you could use Nutella for something s’mores-like, but I can’t stand hazelnut.


Vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit! It’s what I usually put on my girls’ pancakes but we were out and I didn’t feel like making more. The grainy texture of the bread was a perfect complement to the sweet smoothiness of the yogurt. I was really surprised at how good it was! :)
