Friday Food Files

Breakfasts are a challenge around here on most mornings. Someone might have eaten something one day and refuses to touch it the next day. My son will eat a piece of bread with cheese most days and maybe a banana, but my daughter would rather skip breakfast. However, letting her skip breakfast leads to crying at school - so, not an option.

We have three varieties of cheerios at home now and with some persuasion I can usually get her to eat that. Sometimes we have to break down and serve Nutella (and even that doesn't always work). We've tried bread, yogurt, cheese, bananas, apples, berries, breakfast muffins, eggs...I just want to crawl back into bed.

Do your kids eat breakfast? What works for you?


  1. oh my gosh. I have the same thing with dinner... Baby C just doesn't want to eat dinner for weeks on end. And than start crying at bedtime that she's hungry. It's incredible how creative parents become to get their kids to eat!

    I make buckwheat every Sunday night and hubby and Baby C will have that with milk for breakfast. Or I make pancakes from baker's cheese with raisins and that can be just stored in the fridge for a very quick breakfast. Very high in protein and keeps everyone full for hours. (very traditional Ukrainian breakfast food) Rye bread with cheese is always a winner too. And if all else fails, plain yogurt with honey

    I hope things get better for you. She might just outgrow it. Fingers and toes crossed.

  2. i dont have children- but when I baby sit the leaving the food everywhere ALWAYS happens!

  3. Turkey bacon works at our house.
    So do nutragrains
    Graham crackers while we walk to school

    Cereal and yogurt are a pain because I have to spoon them into his mouth. He's too busy playing to eat.

  4. I don't have kids, but I do have a husband who refuses to eat breakfast...until I made a batch of "energy bites" with peanut butter, oatmeal, flaxseed, plus some chocolate chips and coconut flakes. He doesn't know they are good for him and now eats 3 every morning :)
