Why We Love These Cute Valentine’s Day Breakfast Ideas
- Healthy start to the day: Valentine’s Day is normally one of the most indulgent holidays. That’s fine in moderation, but eating too much sugar and not enough nutrient-dense foods can send your kids into a tailspin when the sugar wears off. Start the day off right with plenty of protein, fresh fruit, and filling fiber. Your kids will feel much better throughout the day!
- Easy to make: These fun ideas might look complicated, but they aren’t! Most of them use cookie cutters or molds to form simple ingredients into something new and exciting. You can make some of these Valentine’s Day treats in just a few seconds!
- Cute and colorful: The goal is to make your healthy Valentine’s Day breakfast as exciting as possible to make sure your kids start the day off right. With lots of bright colors and fun heart-shaped items, your kids won’t be able to help but grab the fresh berries or applesauce hearts off their plates!
Valentines Breakfast Ideas for Kids
Whether you want a few simple breakfast ideas or you want to host a feast on Valentine’s Day morning, these recipes will be a hit with the whole family!
Heart Shaped Egg in a Nest
Feeding a crew? This delicious breakfast couldn’t get much easier! The egg in a nest is baked in the oven, so you can make enough for the whole family at the same time. The heart-shaped fruit is a bonus!
On the plate:
Granola Breakfast Cups
These granola breakfast cups are the perfect easy Valentine’s Day breakfast! Bake the granola cups a day or two before, then add some yogurt and fresh berries right before serving. Seriously cute!
Heart Shaped Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwiches
One incredibly easy Valentine’s breakfast for kids is to make their favorite sandwich, and then form it into a heart with a cookie cutter. This healthy PB&J is naturally sweetened with homemade chia jam. Perfect for strawberry banana lovers!
On the plate:
- Whole grain bread cut into hearts with cookie cutter and topped with natural peanut butter and strawberry chia jam
- Banana slices cut into mini hearts
- Strawberry banana smoothie
A sweet little strawberry heart can turn any dish into a special treat. The homemade chia jam is the perfect way to get them to eat some extra fruit before they start their day.
On the plate:
- Valentine’s Parfait: Layer up strawberry chia jam (or sub in diced strawberries) with Greek yogurt (plain or a low sugar flavored kind), granola, more yogurt and then top with a strawberry heart.
Heart Shaped Eggs
Aren’t these heart eggs so much fun? You just need a heart-shaped silicone mold or muffin tray and some whole eggs. This is the perfect recipe to serve up some extra protein on Valentine’s morning.
On the plate:
- Heart shaped eggs
- Piece of whole grain toast
- Strawberries and blueberries in a small heart bowl
Heart Shaped Waffles
One of my favorite Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas is to serve waffles or pancakes formed into hearts. Aren’t the XOXO fruits adorable?
On the plate:
- 3-Ingredient Protein Waffles cut into hearts using heart-shaped cookie cutters (you can also use heart-shaped waffle maker if you have one) and topped with a pouf of whipped cream
- “XOXO” cut out of honey melon and cantaloupe using heart and letter cutters
- Fresh raspberries
Valentine’s Overnight Oats
Instead of cutting your foods, use the heart-shaped cookie cutter to add an easy heart design to your overnight oats or yogurt with pomegranate seeds!
On the plate:
- Overnight oats: In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup rolled oats + 1 tablespoon chia seeds + 3/4 cup milk + 1/4 cup low sugar strawberry Greek yogurt + 1 tablespoon strawberry chia jam. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least 8 hours. Place a heart-shaped cookie cutter over the surface of the oats, and sprinkle pomegranate seeds into the cookie cutter until a heart shape is formed. Carefully remove the cookie cutter and serve.
You can use this idea with any type of overnight oats that you prefer! These banana overnight oats would also be delicious!
This bagel is one of the easiest options on the list! You just need to add some mini hearts to make your go-to peanut butter bagel perfect for a special occasion. The frozen yogurt bites are a fun snack to make ahead, too. Keep them in your freezer for a fun treat any time!
On the plate:
- Whole grain bagel spread with natural peanut butter
- Banana slices and strawberries cut into little hearts with a small heart-shaped cookie cutter
- Frozen yogurt bites – place low sugar strawberry Greek yogurt in a small heart shaped mold. Freeze until sold. Pop out of mold and serve!
Valentine’s Day Pancakes
Pancakes make any special morning extra special and these are no exception. You can even shape the pancake batter to make heart-shaped pancakes! Those little applesauce hearts look like gems, too. My kids grab those right away!
- Mini pancakes (we typically use these banana oatmeal pancakes made with oat flour)
- Drizzle of natural peanut butter
- Sprinkle of mini chocolate chips
- Hearts made out of unsweetened strawberry kiwi applesauce frozen in a small heart-shaped silicone mold
Heart Shaped French Toast
Use your favorite cookie cutter to cut your bread into hearts before battering and griddling it like normal. Such a fun twist on a classic! Use my special banana french toast recipe to keep it low sugar.
Heart Shaped Charcuterie Board
This heart shaped charcuterie board is everything you need for a Valentine’s Day feast! It’s made with heart-shaped sandwiches and a variety of fresh fruits, cheese, and snacks. It’s truly the perfect breakfast for any Valentine’s Day celebration!

Valentine’s Breakfast Tips
- Keep it simple. You can easily turn simple ingredients or breakfast ideas into a Valentine’s Day treat by cutting them into hearts or adding a pop of red or pink.
- Involve the kids. Scroll through these recipes with the kids and see which easy recipes they want to try! They can even help make them. The more they get involved, the more likely it is that they’ll actually eat this special homemade breakfast.
- Remember balance. I highly recommend keeping breakfast lower in sugar if possible since they’ll likely get some later in the day. If they love chocolate though, it’s okay to add some dark chocolate chips or some sweetened yogurt melts here and there. Let it be fun and special!
