Waffles are a great breakfast item to have on hand to serve to your little one. You can definitely pick up a pack of frozen waffles from a grocery store, but it is so simple to customize different waffle flavors and textures on your own! I love incorporating veggies, fruits, and healthy fats into waffles and batch making them to freeze and serve throughout a busy week. Here are some waffle variations, both savory and sweet that you can try for your little ones!

1. SPINACH BANANA WAFFLES

Spinach and banana is a classic flavor combo that is a great way to incorporate veggies into your little one’s meals. Blend spinach into your waffle batter for fun-colored, nutritious pancakes that your little ones are sure to love!
