    Waffles for the toaster? ya, I cheap out all the time with those. Usually served with fresh strawberries or banana’s. Bagelfuls are my favourite and surprisingly healthy… they are portable too when you have those “I’m not eating this moment” followed by 20 minutes later on your way to school of “I’m hungry!”

    Pea butter which is very much like peanut butter in all ways is the allergy safe alternative, and available in most grocery stores.

    Banana wrapped in a wrap with mayo & jam works too (or pea butter), or left over hotdog buns.

    Chopped apples or berries on top of yogurt with granola also a big hit in our house. You could let them add in their own chopped fruit, and watch it change color (strawberries and blueberries when frozen).

    Eggs can be cooked in a about 30 sec in a well buttered ramekin and covered with cellophane… stir up, salt & pepper, voila! Take that and smash it, use some ketchup or salsa and maybe cheese, throw it between bread or in a wrap and you have the breakfast wrap from McDs- but better!

    Hard boiled eggs last up to 5 days in the fridge. Do a whole bunch at once. Color them even, for fun. YOu can slice them on bread or quarter them to eat on their own, or smash them and have egg salad for breakfast (same ingredients as an omlette except for the mayo, really).

    Or you can double your pancake receipe on the weekend, and freeze the left overs, they’re great from the freezer into the toaster to the plate.

    We also buy the pre-grated cheese and freeze it, melt it on toast in the micro for about 30 secs, and slice up some fruit on the side. Sliced deli cheese works too. It takes about 2 minutes from toasting to melt.

    Hope this helps. I have a very slow eater at home, so share your frustration. I have actually sent him to Daycare with out him finishing his breakfast… they have snack, I will not feel guilty!

      Never feel guilty! I’ll look into the pea butter and also need to return to the berries and yogurt and granola. Tried that but can’t remember if it was a winner. Eggs are good, but I like to do them for lunch a lot since I’ve got two home with me all the freaking time. Pre-grated cheese is a great idea for toast, too! This is all good. Sometimes you just wish you could open a box of cereal, though, you know? Like, BEFORE the coffee has started brewing.
      Thanks Jill!

    We use pea butter here, tastes almost the same as peanut butter… you wouldn’t know the difference if someone didn’t tell you really.

    Also, we do plain cereal on the way to school pretty much every day… or waffles. Bring a banana and a cup of milk and it’s breakfast on the go. Lol.

    They eat snack at about 9:30 which is always something awesome so I never worry.

    The frozen pancake thing is good too..
