On the same hand on know that it is such an important meal that without breakfast your ability to function effectively throughout the day is severely limited. Not only that it is a long day in our house and without food energy will sure wain and childrens behaviours sure can turn to the negative.....just like mine at times.
So in the last week or two I have trying to work out about breakfast for my children, especially my daughter who is playing a lot of hockey for the next six weeks or two.
This is what I have found works especially when DH is away for work and I am having to sit with Hayden for the next 2 hours and do his food and medication. This is when, unfortunately, the children need to organise their own breakfast, where I try and make it as easy as I can so they can come to where I am sitting with Hayden.
- porridge, in pre organised packages. I know this is an expensive way to go but is easy for Andre who is 8, to manage.
- a variety of cereals from Weetbix and Weetbix bites. Easy to serve with yoghurt made in my Easy Yo yoghurt maker.
- spaghetti on whole grain bread (toast)
- fresh fruit
- not forgetting the drink of milk
