In brief: High protein

In general, for gestational dm, docs encourage pts to eat more protein, and fewer carbs.
For breakfast, this might mean switching from a large bowl of cereal with a splash of milk to a bowl of yogurt with granola, cereal, or fruit added. Cheese and nuts can add some options to typical eggs and breakfast meats.

In brief: 2% milk/cereal.

2% white milk with cereal (without added sugar) such as cheerios with cinnamon would be a great idea.
Fruit in moderation +/- greek yogurt could also be part of your breakfast, as could eggs, in moderation. Avoid orange juice, chocolate milk, sugar and deserts!
