This is a recipe dear to my heart.

My Mom has always told us that her “Grandpap” used to make this cereal. Now my grandmother is in her 80’s so if her dad ate it as a child, we are talking over 100 years ago! That’s four generation of parents feeding this same toddler cereal recipe to their children. It has to be good if it has last all these years, right?

If you are looking for ways to get healthy foods into your child’s diet, this is a simple recipe with little prep that is a great start to their day. This is a perfect recipe to add breastmilk or formula to for added nutrition. Toddler cereal, child cereal, adult cereal- this is healthy and delicious for “kids” of all ages 😉

Toddler Cereal Recipe

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Toddler Cereal Recipe


  • Bananas
  • Graham Crackers
  • Cereal (or formula/breastmilk depending on age)


  1. Cut up bananas into small pieces (you can even mash the banana for young toddlers)
  2. Break 2 whole graham crackers into smaller pieces and add to bowl with bananas.
  3. Add milk (or formal/breastmilk) to bananas and graham crackers
  4. Graham crackers will soften a lot (and quite quickly) in the milk which makes this a nice recipe for toddlers. Make the banana and cracker pieces as small as is appropriate for the child's age/ability to chew or mash food.

Healthy Toddler Cereal

Honestly, I still eat this as an adult sometimes.

Some suggested variations:

-Use cinnamon graham crackers and add a dash of cinnamon on top of cereal

-Add blueberries/strawberries

-Top with chocolate morsels

-Throw in Chia Seeds for a healthy, adult cereal kick

-Use teddy grahams instead of regular graham crackers for a fun breakfast. I used Finding Dory Graham Cracker snacks on top since we are on a Finding Dory kick in our house:
