Has your kid ever missed breakfast?

My son did not eat breakfast and then threw up at school. He told his school that he did not eat breakfast. The teacher gave him breakfast. Can I get in trouble if my kid refused breakfast?

 Trouble? What kind of trouble do you think you will be in?

They've opted out of eating before, we don't force our kids to eat when they don't want to.

My girls either eat breakfast here or at school when they get there.  I don't see how you could get into trouble by not feeding him breakfast, though.

It's a sad state of affairs when parents are now questioning every little thing wondering if they'll get in trouble.

I am sure you will be just fine.

My kids like breakfast, but my daughter had always needed a good hour of being awake before she is hungry enough to eat. My son had always wanted the food to teleport into his mouth the second he awakened.

However if he threw up, and doesn't typically refuse breakfast, it may have been the nausea that caused him to refuse food.

No you are not going to get in trouble if your child refuses to eat breakfast. Now if you don't feed them a single meal for a week, then you'd better go hide, because CPS is gonna be knocking on your door!

If my kids don't eat, I can guarantee a vomiting episode - the voice of experience with my kids.

It's not a good idea to force kids to eat longterm, interferes with intuitive eating.

And frankly kids say a lot of crap at school that most people blow off unless they see a pattern of it, kwim?

 My kids 11 and 5 go to school every day without breakfast. They dont like to eat in the morning unless they have been up for at least 3-4 hours. Weekends we do brunch around 11am.

They have snack time at school at 9:30am so they just eat then.

We aren't breakfast eaters... never have been. I'd guess my son eats something for breakfast about once a week. I offer something daily, and multiple choices  - but I'm not going to force him to eat. I've never been one to eat breakfast either. I have coffee and he'll have some juice or milk. I've talked to his doctor about it before and he agreed with my thinking, if he was hungry he'd eat. There is no shortage of food in our home ever. Lunch and dinner, we all eat those meals - but I don't push breakfast. He's 8 if that matters.
