They definitely can be! While some muffin recipes are laden with sugar, these healthy muffin recipes are loaded with protein, fruits and vegetables to help your family start the day off right!

These healthy muffin recipes for kids are definitely a better choice than those sugary breakfast cereals (and way cheaper too!)

What’s the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

A lot! Usually cupcakes have a ton more calories and sugar and a lot less nutrients. This of course means that cupcakes (while very delicious) are not the best breakfast choice and that muffins are definitely healthier than cupcakes.

Are these muffin recipes good for toddlers?

You’ll want to consult your pediatrician but in general yes, these recipes would all be fine for a toddler. Your child’s palate may dictate that some of these are a no-go, but in general most of these would be toddler-friendly muffins.

Any recipes containing protein powder, artificial sweeteners or honey might be ones to avoid for your toddler but it’s always best to consult your doctor first to be certain what is safe for your child to consume.

What’s the healthiest muffin to eat?

That is going to depend a lot on your dietary requirements but in general a muffin with low sugar, high protein and healthy ingredients like fruits and vegetables is going to be a healthy choice.
