My DD's faves include:
- Pancakes. These are great because they can be made ahead of time. I usually make up at least the batter the night before, sometimes I even cook them the night before. They also hold up really decent when frozen so sometimes I make up a bunch on a Saturday and just nuke em throughout the week. And DD loves them cut into pieces in a bowl with chunks of bananas or strawberries.
- Scrambled eggs with some shredded cheese on top. Sometimes I'll even mince up some already cooked ham and through it in the mix, she loves it no matter what. Super fast too!
- Instant oatmeat. This is by far my DD's favorite breakfast. I get the lower sugar variety packs that include Maple w/ brown sugar (sprinkle a little extra brown sugar in it just because she likes it), Apple cinnamon, and cinnamon spice. Again, some cut up bananas or strawberries go great with these. And they are fast and cheap! 1 min 40 sec in the microwave and I make it with milk instead of water so she gets her extra calcium.
- Chopped banana tossed with rice krispies (dry) and cut up wheat toast. I usually smush a banana and spread it on the toast instead of butter.
My DD is 22mo and she is just now starting to like cereal so maybe he just hasn't gotten the hang of it. Every week or so I let her have a little bowl of fruit loops or cheerios with an eentsy bit of milk and a real spoon (baby spoons are too small for cereal) and she goes to town on them! She used to just throw them on the floor. What a mess. :)

My son is 16 months and I like to make a lot of the same stuff as ra11en but kinda different.....
~i will make Waffles for him and he LOVES them! and when in season i put some fruit in them too! which makes them that much better.
~ scrambled eggs sometimes with cheese.
~Oatmeal with some kind of fruit
~ he loves it when i barley toast 2 pieces of bread and put some scrambled eggs in it then whatever falls out onto his highchair he will pick it up and eat it
~ and when i make biscuits and gravy i will give him a biscuit with some gravy in the middle and he loves that, he makes a mess but all well thats what kids do
and while im making breakfast for him i will give him a handful of dry cheerios and his sippy of milk to keep him busy.hope this will help and give you an idea...:)

French toast is also easy and quick! On RARE occasions, like having to take my daughter to her doctor 2 hours away for an early morning appointment, I would let her have Pop-tarts - small pieces of course! It was a special treat of days guaranteed to be fairly long!
