What do you feed your kids for breakfast?

On non school days my son eats breakfast at about 9:30 or 10:00. He just doesn't want food before then. But at school he won't get lunch till 11:30. I'm trying to think of light simple things that are good for breakfast.

  • A bowl of cereal with milk, a glass of juice or a piece of fruit. Or cheese and toast, or a grilled cheese sandwich. Protein will keep him more alert and give him long-lasting energy. So some kind of protein, meat, eggs, cheese, milk.

  • I make breakfast burritos and freeze them in individual servings. I take out one and put it in the toaster oven so it can heat while my ds gets ready for school. I make them eggs, sausage or bacon and cheese. No potatoes as they don't freeze well.

  • i feed them whatever they want. chicken soup, cereal, ravioli, ham sandwiches, pb&j,pizza, leftovers. whatever.
    take him to the grocery store this weekend and let him pick out some things he thinks he wants.

  • I give them a few choices,
    Pancakes and milk
    cereal and juice and fruit if they want
    bagel with jelly or cream cheese and juice or milk
    They don't really have huge appetites in the morning so I don't make them eat a lot. I do make sure they have something to drink, I hate the thought of them being thirsty at school. Our kindergartner has a mid morning snack at school so if he doesn't eat much in the morning, which he usually doesn't, then I know he will have something around 10am.

  • Cereal mostly or whatever they can get on their own. I don't make breakfast. They can make toast with peanut butter, English muffins (if we have them), cereal or leftover pizza when we have it.
    In the winter I will occasionally make them oatmeal. Making it on the stove is easier then the packets since there are 4 kids. We also have granola bars in the house and occasionally have pop tarts as a treat.

  • My daughter eats cereal usually, and my son as well, sometime we do the toaster strudel and pop tatrts (if they were on salethat week) or bagles if they were on sale. I dont cook breakfast I dont have time in the mornings, we do oatmeal do sometimes, the packets are so much easier if you use a tea kettle to boil the water on the stove and then use a sturdy palstic measuring cup to measure out the amount you need.

  • brown rice with dried blueberries, cinnamon, milk and chopped pecans
    whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a smoothie*
    scrambled eggs and soy chorizo with beans and jack cheese on a corn tortilla
    ham and cheese omlette with toast
    cereal with milk and fruit
    blueberry pancakes
    granola yogurt parfait with fruit
    blintzes with fruit

    *smoothies are a great way to sneak veggies into the diet of someone who doesn't care for them. our smoothie this morning was yogurt, pineapple, mango, banana, broccoli and kale. it wouldn't work for kids who won't "do" green stuff, unless you put it in an opaque cup with a straw.
