What are some breakfast options you serve your kids before they go to school?

I wanted to get some ideas other than cereal.

  • cream of wheat, scrambled eggs, sausage and fruit, yogurt or smoothies, oatmeal and cereal. I don't have time for anything else...

  • Cereal, pancakes, toast, fruit or just chocolate milk.

    Mine don't have much of an appetite when they wake up.

  • For four years, my oldest son had a peanut butter sandwich every morning for breakfast. Lately I have been trying to get him to eat some other stuff, and today he asked me why I haven't been making peanut butter sandwiches lately, because he missed it. He also gets some milk mixed with instant breakfast to try to get more calories into him because I can't keep weight on him.
    My youngest son will eat anything, but like my oldest, he will usually stick to non-breakfast foods, like leftovers or a sandwich. They are having leftover steak with apples and instant breakfast tomorrow morning.

  • Other than cereal...pancakes, waffles, fried eggs, cinnamon rolls, yogurt, buttered or jellied toast.

    Usually though her breakfast is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

  • I keep lots of pre-cut frozen fruit. They sell it to make smoothies with, but I just give them to DS plain. Pour a little into a ziplock the night before, put it in the fridge, it's just thawed enough for breakfast. He'll have that and sometimes toast or a muffin with it - anything heavier than that makes him sick to his stomach. Same with dairy, no go first thing, so cereal is for weekends.

  • oatmeal, scrambled eggs-fruit-muffin, egg sandwich, French toast, egg burrito, cereal, breakfast toaster strudel thingies (egg/sausage ones)

    *my daughter does her own thing (she is 19)
    but my son (16) pretty much just wants way or another!

  • Oatmeal, cheese and crackers, peanut butter and banana on toast, granola bar and apple slices, cheese sandwich (on whole grain) or cheese quesadilla, grilled ham & cheese, turkey sausage and french toast (the frozen kind...). My son doesn't eat very many "traditonal" breakfast foods...

  • My daughter usually wants a tortilla, a waffle, or cereal. She's not too hungry in the mornings.
