Breakfast?

Yesterday my 7 year old daughter ate the top of a piece of toast and the 3 year old ate one bite of banana!

I'm out of ideas for a breakfast they will eat - what do you serve your kids?

What do you eat yourself? (me...just coffee today)

We get frozen pancakes and french toast sticks from Schwan's. DS eats either of those or waffles. They're quick and easy. You either cook them in the microwave or toaster. Sometimes, he'll have cold cereal, but very rarely.

One of the following: cold cereal, mostly, then oatmeal, fruit, greek yogurt, sometimes a mix of almonds and dried fruit and milk.
You may see a pattern- I don't cook in the am lol.
Today she didn't eat anything, she woke up too late- her first day of preschool after spring break. She didn't want anything. I don't care too much because they have a snack around 10 am, and on days when she doesn't go to school that is about when she would eat breakfast anyway!

Weekdays we have cold cereal or cottage cheese and fruit. Most days they eat little if anything for breakfast. They all get a snack at school somtime between 9:30 & 10:30. Then they start lunch at 11:00.

Watch out when they get home from school they are starving and will eat whatever they can find.

My kids will eat pretty much whatever we make. Sometimes DH will make fried eggs, bacon, & toast and they'll have that. If I'm cooking, it'll be either frozen waffles or flavored oatmeal. At grandma's, they have whatever she makes.

We have days where they'll eat their entire breakfast and others where they'll take one or two bites and say they're done. We don't force them to eat and figure they'll eat well at lunch.

As for me, it depends on the day of the week. Sundays I don't usually eat breakfast since I'm busy feeding the kids and getting them ready for church. Mondays is half a bagel w/peanut butter. Tuesdays is oatmeal. Wendesdays is a pizza bagel. Thursdays is oatmeal. Fridays are either half a bagel w/peanut butter or a large muffin. Saturdays are whatever I or DH makes.

DS has either a peanut butter protein bar or a Nutrigrain type bar or toaster strudel. Sometimes he will have cold cereal. As for me, I usually have cold cereal.

My kids are pretty big on breakfast, especially DS. They usually start off with "breakfast #1" which is a Trader Joes Fig bar, a Lara Bar or a Trio bar around 6:15 and that holds them ff until I can get everyone ready and downstairs for "breakfast #2" at 7am. At that point, they get fresh fruit, milk and a hard boiled egg, Normally they need more so I offer things like yogurt, cottage cheese, peanut buter toast, oatmeal or cold cereal. Twice a week DS will plead with me to get everyone down early so we can make waffles and scrambled eggs (instead of the hard boiled egg and ceereal) which they all like as well.

My kids could never make it out the door without thier bars, milk, fruit and an egg at the very least. They just aren't capable.

they eat at daycare about 9am now but I'm sure when they start K next fall I will be trying to get them to eat something before that. I know when they go to school they serve breakfast but I'm not sure what & what the cost is.

Daycare does waffles, pancakes, fruit, milk & I forget what else.

We have served & they eat oatmeal, cold cereal, scrambled eggs on toast with cheese, blueberry pancakes(DH's specialty), frozen waffles, fruit, peanut butter on wheat toast, milk, yogurt.

On the weekends I let them choose what's for breakfast & like PP said sometimes they eat it all & sometimes just a few bites & then they are full.

Avery eats at daycare now too. 8am! Sometimes she wants breakfast before we leave the house. But typically they offer waffles/pancakes/french toast/muffins/eggs and ham/bagels....you get the idea, all carbs.
Honestly we don't have time in the mornings M-F to do "real" breakfast. When kindergarten starts in the fall she will have to live with cold cereal/fresh fruit. Weekends I leave breakfast up to Avery and DF. I'll make eggs and toast/homemake pancakes or frenchtoast/hashbrowns. The whole works. We always have fresh fruit in the house, I just need to shove it under their noses!
As for me, I have a single serving of either yogurt or cottage cheese, toast, and fruit (typically cantalope when in season but sometimes grapes or strawberries). Coffee when I remember to preset the coffee pot or have time to stop and get a cup....thats a treat.

Yikes that was a book! And all just for breakfast! haha
