Pesach Breakfast Ideas

We have a whole host of ideas for Pesach breakfasts! If you’re feeling adventurous, we have enough options for the kids to have something different everyday of Pesach!

Sign up to our mailing list and we’ll send you a copy of the list we have compiled, or scroll down to view our suggestions.


Breakfast is often the most challenging meal over Pesach when thinking of ideas to feed the kids. Here are some ideas (aside from the ‘less-than-tasty cereals’ available in your local Kosher shop, and the staple of Matza plus jam/chocolate spread/cheese/honey etc.). Some Rabbis have been known to permit babies to eat food containing Kitniyot (with separate crockery and washed up elsewhere) and this may be worth exploring with your own Rabbi (please do not take our word on this!). We’ve found the Evelyn Rose recipe book really useful and have referenced the book in several places for you to find exact recipes.

We’d love to hear feedback on recipes and other ideas that worked with your kids.

Chag Sameach!

1)       Matzah Meal Porridge: mix some medium matza meal with some sugar and milk. This could also be made by mixing matza meal in a pot with milk or water and slowly heating, stirring until it thickens up.

2)       Fruit ‘n’ Fibre: mix matza pieces with raisins, almonds, sliced banana and milk and any other fresh or dried fruit. You could also sprinkle cinnamon on top for added flavour.
