Vegan Birthday Breakfast Ideas

Of course, we understand that some have dietary requirements, or follow a certain diet, which is why we wanted to ensure we put a list together of birthday breakfast ideas suitable for vegans. That will make any birthday extra special.

Our SHREDDIE® vegan berry smoothie can be served with an extra sprinkling of SHREDDIES® cereal for an added crunch.

Vegan breakfast bars

These vegan bars are full of yummy berry flavours. They are also a tasty breakfast to make for a special birthday breakfast too. All you need is some orange or apple juice, jumbo rolled oats, crumbled SHREDDED WHEAT Original® Cereal, hazelnuts & almonds, dried apricots, raisins, and some sunflower seeds. 

Our SHREDDED WHEAT® breakfast bars are great to make up in big batches too! Once made and stored in an air-tight container, these will last a few days and will still hold their fruity flavour. 

Gluten-Free Birthday Breakfast ideas

Making sure to adhere to dietary requirements is important, which is why we wanted to make sure we offered some tasty gluten-free breakfast ideas for birthdays that are great for a little morning surprise!

Gluten-free berry oatmeal muesli

Get their birthday off to a tasty start with gluten-free muesli. This birthday breakfast will need to be put together the night before. Simply heat the oven and spread some walnuts, Gluten Free honey cornflakes, or plain cornflakes, and oats onto a baking tray. Then, mix some honey and buttery baking spread and drizzle over your cereal mixture.

Bake the muesli for 15 to 18 minutes, and stir halfway through. Once cooled, pop the muesli in a serving bowl with low fat yoghurt and a good topping of fresh fruits.

Why should Nestlé Cereals be used as an ingredient?

We have been on a journey for the past 18 years to make sure our cereal recipes make breakfast even better. That means, we have worked on increasing their whole grain and fibre, whilst making sure to reduce their sugar and salt content

All Nestlé cereals which carry a Green banner have whole grain as the number one ingredient. Many Nestlé breakfast cereals are fortified with 5 vitamins and 2 minerals, including riboflavin, niacin, B6, folic acid, pantothenic acid, iron , calcium and vitamin D. Combining your favourite breakfast cereal with different toppings and fruit, or using them in tasty breakfast recipes is a great way to add some excitement to your breakfast.

Breakfast is always a fun way to kick off any birthday celebration, which is why we wanted to give you the ultimate breakfast ideas for birthdays to make all celebrations that extra bit special! What better way to say ‘Happy Birthday’ than with some of our delicious breakfast recipe ideas, that all incorporate our tasty cereals? We can’t think of a better way to do that!
