Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I push push push my children to eat.
I have a 3 & 4 year old who just seem not to be hungry first thing in the morning. They will have juice but everything I put in front of them pretty much goes to waste after a spoonful or 2.
Any helpful hints? Does anyone else here have the same issue? Thank you for your input!

I let my 2 1/2 year old son eat when he's hungry. Sometimes it won't be until an hour or so after he wakes up. I make a plate of things he can eat himself like sliced fresh fruit, cheerios, peanut butter waffles, etc, and put it somewhere he can get to it when he's ready. I don't think it's healthy to force children to eat. It's not a good habit to eat when you aren't hungry.

I have to agree with Louise. If they are drinking juice (something that many pediatricians frown upon, anyway), they might be too full to eat what you offer them for breakfast.
