Any ideas for quick breakfast ideas for the kids? Bec drops the kids off at my place at 7, Sarah and I get up then, and I rush to feed all 3 kids, get S dressed, get me dressed and in the car to leave at 7.45am. Now 2 of them are happy to eat toast, so I could feed them in the car, but they are likely to get butter and peanut butter or vegimite all over their uniforms.

Anyone got any quick ideas about what I can feed them for breakfast on the run?

Once a week we stop at Maccas and they have A choc milk and bacon and egg muffin, which I think is a pretty good breakfast, but it costs me $17 for the 3 of them for breakfast, and I can't see bacon and eggs as a good healthy breakfast for kids every day (And one of them only eats hash browns so long term not a great idea!! ph34r.gif tongue.gif )

Dear Hubby fed the kids smoothies for breakfast this morning -

banana, strawberries (frozen), milk and yoghurt.

Not sure how they both lasted up until morning tea, but the excitement seemed to be through the roof!

Not sure what else you can add that is suitable for a child (LSA, protein mix etc).

Sounds good, but a little labour intensive!
I was thinking more along the lines of eat in the car type stuff. We are in the car for 15minutes for the drive to school.
Thank you!

What about mini muffins or pastries ? (i love there choc crossiants)
I know they are not great for every morning. but once a week would be okay. I am not sure there is a Bakers Delight or Brumby's on your way to school, but you could pick some up the day before smile.gif

There is a bakery, but all they want from there is cupcakes or merangs (sp). I might make some mini muffins, maybe savoury ones with bacon or ham and cheese in them. That would be easy, and seeing I take them in Bec's car the crumbs won't matter laugh.gif

I guess Banana muffins or ones with hidden veges wouldn't be too bad for breakfast would they?

I love Up & Go's for a breakfast on the move.

You might try combining one of those with a cereal bar - I think Kelloggs does heaps of different ones, to be found in your supermarket cereal aisle. I'm pretty sure there's nutragrain, special k and crunchynutcornflakes..

What about ham and egg cups? A slice or 2 of ham in a muffin tin to form a "cup" then crack an egg in the cup, bake for 5-10 minutes or until the egg is set. Voila.

Actually smoothies are a lot quicker to make than toast even biggrin.gif

We put muesli in the smoothies as well, or oats and wheat-germ, and it all gets blended in and just makes it more filling.

With banana and yoghurt and muesli and milk it's a perfect breakfast, and they can drink it in cups in the car (you can pop it in thermos flasks or cycling bottles that have a wide neck therefore easy to clean after.)

I love the idea of the Egg Cups that megs suggested. Bacon and Egg muffins from maccas are far from a bad breakfast but you are right that it's pricey and not so good for everyday.

Have you got a jaffle maker? (breville, whatever!) You could make up ham/cheese or ham/tomato sandwiches the night before in the fridge, pop them in the maker while you're getting dressed, and half of one should be a good brekkie, and if it's a maker that seals them in halves that'd be good to contain the food biggrin.gif

Hmm not really sweet enough, but maybe cause the bananas were fresh? Have added some white sugar to the last batch we'll see how they go, I got 18 mini muffins in 10 minute batches.

I didn't have enough choc chips so that might be why they aren't sweet enough.

Sometimes when I am working and hubby is in a rush he just lets my daughter eat a banana or a kids yoghurt on the way to school and once there she buys a muffin from the canteen (40c for a small or 80c for a large), they are healthy ones and you can't bet the price. Does your school do anything similar?

Yes what about this ^^^ and a banana. Or a Vaalia Squeezy Yoghurt and a muesli bar?




ETA Sometimes I make up Avocado (or vegemite) and grilled cheese toast and cut into soldiers. They're fine cold!

What about a bagel with cream cheese. Also I agree with the jaffles but they may still be messy.

The other option is to take all the ingredients of a smoothie and freeze into paddlepops - which kid doesn't want to eat a fruit paddlepop for breakfast in the car
