Breakfast. The most important part of the day apparently. Honestly, if you’re anything like me as a mom, you’re running like a chicken with your head cut off on school mornings. I simply cannot get it together sometimes. I mean I barely make it out of bed and get my daughter of the door to make it to school on time. If you’re not that mom, however, I applaud you.
School starts back on Friday for us in the Nashville area. My daughter’s preschool starts 2 weeks from today. While I’m half relieved to have some time to get things done and half inconsolable about my baby being gone a few days a week from me, mostly I stress out about feeding her a healthy breakfast and lunch on those days. Right now I’m 5 months pregnant so my energy is basically kaput. Anything that I can do to keep my baby girl happy and healthy, I will do. If that thing also saves me time, well where do I sign up?
I’ve been combing through recipes for quick breakfast ideas for kids that you can food prep for busy mornings. This also applies for you and your entire family in the mornings. I usually spend Sunday morning or afternoon food prepping for the next few days and probably Wednesday as well. Most breakfast ideas for kids below you can freeze ahead of time too so you don’t have to do it as often. I thought I would share with you guys the recipes I make the most, that also take the least amount of time.
*** Quick Tip: I would cut up a big bowl of fruit ahead of time on Sundays also for the week too! ***
