  • You need to get some easy mac lol not as good but when my 3yo wants pasta & we are on a time crunch or its morning I love being able to toss it in the microwave & its cooked in 3minutes!

    I say go ahead let 'em have it I feed my daughter weird things for breakfast as long as its in our view of healthy food!

  • Personally, I'd say NAY to it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack ... the stuff is crap.

  • i myself wouldn't do's more of a lunch or dinner thing...but whatever floats your boat....if i have nothing, i normally go with toast or something...just a butter knife to clean if you use a paper towel instead of a plate :)

  • why not? Food is food....I almost never eat breakfast food in the morning. Right now, I'm eying left over pasta from last night...

    Breakfast food is no different from other's just our conditioning that makes us thing we must eat something "breakfasty" in the morning.

  • I'm not a fan of boxed mac & cheese, but serve it whenever you want to. There's no rule that breakfast has to be only a small range of foods.

  • Why not pick something that is easier for breakfast, like cereal? Since you are in a time crunch :) Otherwise, I say whatever you like, though, again, if you are in a time crunch, it might make sense to make it the night before and put it in a container to heat up in the morning.

  • Depends on if you really want to do those dishes. Where is it written that the food groups and certain foods have to be eaten at certain times of the day? It's fun to mix it up once in a while. There's nothing wrong with having your big meal in the morning and a bowl of cereal or eggs for dinner. It actually gives your body more time to work it off throughout the day and you aren't going to bed with as many calories to have to fight.

  • Yuck. Not something I would have for breakfast, or really anytime...
