My kids are not big on breakfast foods so I am wondering what other moms give their kids for breakfast. I am up for any ideas. My daughter Mallory especially seems to get bored easily with breakfast foods. Thanks!

    probably not much help, we’re pretty boring with breakfast food. either toast (no white!), a healthy wheat cereal (although i do buy cheerios occasionally), and once or twice a week (usually in the weekend) scrambled eggs, hash browns and bacon! it’s the most importnat meal i always tell them! (i’m always horrified at how many children don’t eat breakfast tho)

    ugh my older one eats nothing for bfast, she usually has cereal dry and maybe some waffle. usually she is more ready to eat after we come down from getting dressed. my younger will eat fruit and yogurt and toast.

    My twins like parfaits: yogurt topped with blueberries and strawberries and simple granola sprinkled on top.

    Also, a toasted whole wheat or organic waffle with cream cheese or peanut butter.

    Hope they like it. E-mail me if you want more. I have to get creative with twins.

    Baby Bee is not a huge bfast eater either. About a half cup of cut up fruit, half a banana and some milk usually fills her up! Although now I feel some pressure to get some other food groups in there…

  • How about oatmeal with brown sugar? Two of my three love it. Or grapefruit with a little sugar (come on, you have to have a little!); also two out of three, but the third is a maybe on this one. Bagel with peanut butter if you’re desperate for protein. Grape Nuts: yep, two out of three. (And yes, with some sugar.) If Dad’s home & cooking, he gets all fancy with eggs and pancakes, but Mommy is NOT a morning person. Good luck and welcome home!

    plain omelet; plain yogurt with jelly mixed in and granola on top; bread & jam; bread & butter; cereal; pancakes (on the weekend); dried out fruit.

  • Ian’s makes french toast sticks (Buy them at Whole Foods) that my girls love. We are huge on homemade pancakes, french toast, or waffles.

    Eggs with cheddar cheese and baby spinach. Also try cutting a hole out of the center of a piece of bread, crack in an egg, and cook! My girls love them!
