An Ode to Breakfast…

kellogg breakfast

Dear Breakfast,

Most days you are a bowl of cereal and milk. Easy and simple. A boost of energy.

Weekend mornings you may expand to pancakes or french toast. Bacon or sausage. Scrambled or overeasy. Maple syrup. Fresh squeezed orange juice. A little more time with family.

I love you breakfast.




For those of you who are reading this who don’t eat breakfast, you are missing out and so are your kids. Breakfast is so important. It’s the jumpstart to your day. You need the protein in breakfast to feel energized until lunch (it keeps you from unnecessary snacking too) Breakfast means kids work smarter and harder. So take just 17 minutes, pour some bowls of cereal. Sit down with your kids. Start your day out right.

  1. thank goodness i was able to instill habits like breakfast and exercise with my daughter–not so successful with myself :/

  2. Breakfast with my 4 kids is how I start my day and it allows us to get ready for the day and find out what everyone has in store.

  3. I definitely love breakfast food. We never have enough time in the morning for anything nice becuase my kids complain and whine about getting out of bed and then have to rush to get anything in them so they can get to school. Luckily I make them eat breakfast no matter what it is or no matter how quickly they do it, so I guess I’m not the person who wants to be talking while eating breakfast- just eat it and get ready to go 🙂 I do however like the nice sit down big breakfasts we sometimes get to enjoy on Saturday or Sunday or even those special occasions when we get to have breakfast for dinner.

  4. I love breakfast! I can’t imagine ever skipping the most important meal of the day.

  5. I love breakfast but I often don’t eat it. I’m sure that will change once I have a baby!

    I always make sure my daughter has breakfast. Even if it’s just a piece of bread and a clementine. Some days she really doesn’t want to eat breakfast. I don’t usually eat breakfast. I’m usually nursing/changing the baby. Then by the time I’m done doing that Madelynn is done with her breakfast and I have to help her brush her teeth, get dressed, and such.

  7. I have to admit, most days I skip breakfast and stick with entirely too much coffee. Why? I wish I knew. I get wrapped up with getting my kids fed and ready for the day that I always put myself last. I need to make it a priority in the new year!!

  8. I’ve always been a coffee kind of gal for breakfast. However since I have started eating differently breakfast is always the first thing in the morning.

  9. Vanessa Kowalski says:

    As much as I try, my daughter is definitely NOT a breakfast kind of girl. She doesn’t really get hungry until about 9:00 AM, when she’s usually already sitting in a classroom. Since I’ve started homeschooling her, her habits have improved and she eats every morning, on her own schedule, but at least she does eat breakfast now. She’ll be going to a traditional school in a couple of years, I really hope that she doesn’t get too spoiled eating every meal at home and on her own schedule… 😉

  10. We love breakfast foods. We don’t take the time during the week, usually, to make a big breakfast, but we try to on the weekends. And sometimes we do breakfast for dinner. Pancakes, bacon, eggs to order, hashbrowns, biscuits & sausage gravy, toast – some combination of those 🙂

  11. I eat cereal just about every day. I love, love, love it.

  12. I have to admit i rarely eat breakfast but my go to food is cereal, i could eat it for every meal
