Do you go out of your way EVERYDAY to give your kids a FULL breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Like pancakes, toast, bacon, eggs, OJ for breakfast. etc?

I do on the weekends and on special nights we will have a big dinner, but I don't do it ALL the time. Can't afford it and we don't have the time. But, we do eat everymeal together (besides lunch on school days).

  • No, during the week the kids eat breakfast and lunch at the sitters, but I do make dinners every night.
    On the weekend, my husband will make a big breakfast (eggs, grits, bacon/sausage) it is always sandwiches for lunch and then we order dinner on Saturday nights.

  • I did when they were small, and now they come over once in a while to indulge on mom's cooking.

  • I always cook a full supper, a full breakfast some days, but lunch is usually sandwiches. When my oldest gets unto kindergarten I'll probably cook breakfast more often.

  • I prepare nutritious meals, but I do not know if you would consider them FULL meals.
    Breakfast is usually porridge(oatmeal-old fashioned) fruit and milk
    Lunch is usually sandwich, fruit and vegie sticks.
    Dinner is usually protein (meat, fish, cheese, eggs) and 2 vegetables once in awhile I fix a starch (pasta, rice, potatoes)

  • I just focus on what is healthy and the overall intake... what they miss by refusing during a meal can be made up with a snack!

  • My children know what is available in the pantry for breakfast. During the school year, they either make their own lunch or eat at school. I cook a good fully dinner most nights.

  • I make sure my kids have a balanced meal for every meal. I don't always cook something new for every meal. Sometimes we reheat things, but it is always balanced. My kids get their own breakfast, but I monitor to be certain it is healthy and balanced. By 12 and 14 years they are very good at choosing healthy foods and balancing their intake.
