    Happy New Year everybody!

    I was just looking for some new ideas for breakfast. My kids do not like typical breakfast foods such as cereal (although I'm not sure that is such a bad thing). I just discovered greek yogurt for myslef however the kids want no part of that(its a texture thing). So I would appreciate any new ideas.

    Thanks!:)

    I have fruit (right now grapefruit/oranges/tangerines) are plentiful and available off neighbor's trees. I also have omellettes many days- normally I just through some meat and vegies in the pan with the eggs (I don't eat cheese).

    I never ate much in breakfast foods when I was a child- I liked sausages/bacon/pancakes/waffles but that wasn't available every day. Since I didn't like breakfast foods I normally just ate what I did like- sometimes it was soup, granola bars, baked potato. I treat breakfast like every other meal- I eat what I want.

    Get English Muffins and toast them with a piece of cheese inside. Meanwhile, make some scrambled eggs and a sausage patty, and assemble it together.. kind of like eating a McMuffin from McDonald's!

    My kids either have cereal, fruit (apples generally:rolleyes1), muffins (English) or bagels. DS(11) also likes tins of Heinz spaghetti and sausages - no idea why:rolleyes1

    Vitamuffins are so delicious and good for you. I would resist buying them at the grocery store and instead order the baking mix online from them. It's cheaper. The chocolate muffins are my favorite.

    Many years ago, my Mom used to get as bored fixing the same old things for school day breakfast as we did eating it. So she would often make hot lunch food instead. Quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, burritos and vegetable soup are items I remember her serving to us. Her theory was at least we ate a warm meal at the beginning of the day!

    Thanks everyone! My kids eat leftovers whenever there are any. I will have to try the vitamuffins.

    cereal, oatmeal, DS14 makes breakfast on Saturdays and it's usually a muffin mix, english muffins and bagels.
    On weekends we eat pancakes or scrambled eggs.

    The kids aren't big breakfast eaters so a lot of times they skip it. The above is what I keep in the house just in case.

    Smothie. Frozen fruit, such as peaches, banana, strawberries and such, but always blueberries. Leave in fridge overnight to thaw. Then add light soy milk for protein and purple juice (pom or grape) for more liquid.
