Breakfast

My alarm goes off each morning at 5:37 a.m. after I fit snooze a few times I roll out of bed and try to get ready before the kids wake up. I try to have the big kids at the table by 6:30 ready for breakfast. However, I never know what to feed them! So, I rely on the good ol' sugary pop tarts and sugary cereals.

I am at the point where I am reaching out to my friends for breakfast suggestions. What do you feed your kids for breakfast?

I am not a person who likes 'breakfast' things for breakfast very much. ie: I had cereal this AM but probably won't want it again for a couple of weeks, and I don't want eggs very often either. So, I just might have a sandwich for breakfast, or a piece of left over pizza! My sister used to feed her kids soup for breakfast--they liked it! Sometimes I have a yogurt cup or a pudding cup with a piece of toast and/or fruit. too. Or a good ole peanutbutter and jelly on toast sandwich with a glass of milk. The point is: it doesn't matter too much as long as it is quick and healthy!

We do a lot of yogurt, yo-crunch, the tubes, and drinkable. You can always make pancakes, freeze them and have them throw them in the microwave. The same w/ waffles, freeze them, have them pop them in the toaster. We also do granola bars. Just my suggestion...I'd stay away from the pop tarts. Nothing good about them...but maybe the taste! :-)

My kids get the poptarts sometimes too so you aren't a bad mom. Sometimes it's just easier. We also do eggo's(waffles), shake n pour pancakes, struddles, cereal, eggs, egg sandwiches, granola bars, pb&j, etc. I'm with my mom...I don't love breakfast foods either so sometimes I'll have a ham sandwich or a cheese sandwich. I also like to eat a helping of cottage cheese or I too eat leftovers. I like to eat something that actually sticks with me, that has protein. The sugary stuff tends to make me shaky a little too early in the day. Good luck!

I am not much a morning person so if things need to be done in the morning I typically do them the night before so they are ready to go. I was thinking maybe plain yogurt might be fun for your kids and the night before cut up a couple bowls of fruit like strawberries, blueberries, or whatever fruit they like. Set out the bowls and let them decide what they want to mix into their yogurt. Also some granola to sprinkle on the top for the crunchies.

Muffins are something you could bake ahead of time as well and set out.

Hope these suggestions helped!
