what do your kids normally eat for breakfast?

Are you a Mrs. Cleaver kinda mom who cooks breakfast every morning? Or do your kids only leave enough themselfs with enough time to eat a bowl of cereal or do they reach for the on the go poptart?

My kids are all about poptarts. They are ages 4 and almost 2yrs old.

  • I pre-make breakfasts & freeze them - I make breakfast sandwiches that my son can just pop one in the microwave & go. I typically make them with a whole grain english muffin, an egg & either turky bacon or sausage. I also make pancakes & freeze them in 2-packs to be reheated in the toaster/toaster oven. I hope to get a waffle maker so I can start making homemade waffles, too. I have a recipe for homemade poptarts, but I haven't tackled them yet. If he gets up early enough, I'll also make him a fresh hot breakfast, but that's a rare morning, because he likes to sleep as late as possible. None of us really care for cereal and I won't buy commercial poptarts or similar products because they are not healthy for us.

  • Oatmeal or cereal and then split a piece of fruit. Sometimes I will cook eggs for them rarely I will do pancakes of french toast. My kids are not really big fans of those things though.

  • Cereal, poptarts, granola bar, toast, bagel - whatever the older ones feel like having. (They are 11 & 13)

    My 2.5 yo gets a smoothie (organic whole milk with organic yogurt), some fruit and toast or cereal usually.

    On the weekends, I'll make waffles or pancakes and bacon or sausage - but honestly I think the kids like their on the go breakfasts better :)

  • They eat cereal usually. I don't cook breakfast, my kids get their own. My 10yo also knows how to make instant oatmeal. And when we had a toaster they could all make toast. Sometimes we have bagels or English muffins. They are 10, 8, 7 and 4 and have been getting their own breakfasts since my oldest turned 5 (she loved to pour cereal for all the kids and I just poured the milk until the 2nd was 5 and able to do it...he's much bigger than my oldest).
    Now they get breakfast at school so I have no idea what they eat. The 4yo still usually gets cereal but today we are having cinnamon rolls.

  • Oatmeal (not instant) with chocolate chips, Eggo Waffles, Cereal, toast and peanut butter, egg and cheese sandwhiches.
    They make breakfast themselves, I have to leave by 7am for work so they are on their own there is no way I'm getting up at 5 to cook or even consider walking them up before 7 unless they ask me too.
