I am not a morning person. DD is not a morning person. However society dictates that we both have to get up for stupid o'clock to get to school/work. I am very old so am excused breakfast, but I insist on DD having something.
However she will not eat toast or cereal and she's now refusing porridge, and she has a terrible sugar habit which I wish to steer her away from whenever she's within my control.
She will eat: a) scrambled eggs b) boiled eggs c) tinned fruit (bit sugary) d) custard e) low sugar high oat fruit crumble f) pancakes but I'm not doing pancakes at that time of day
Will she have plain yogurt with some oats thrown in, frozen or fresh blueberries and a little honey? Smoothies? Can make it the night before in a tub or bowl. Or maybe some wholewheat banana muffins, make a batch at weekend and freeze them so she can get one out the night before ready for the morning? we sometimes make pancakes at the weekend then freeze them and have them during the week, they heat up pretty quickly in the oven.
Thanks, yes actually we can do yoghurt and fruit puree things if I remember to get them in stock. Our oven takes ages to warm up, so no breakfast plan can involve that unfortunately, it has to be hob or microwave - though I guess pancakes would reheat in a microwave.
Dutch crispbakes (round baked muffin slices) with whatever. Croissant with cheese/salami Continental breakfast, really, bread, cheese, meat. Mine eats stuff like weetabix, for example, but wouldn't touch porridge.
Another vote for smoothies, see if you can find one that includes some veg. Granola, yoghurt and fruit compote feels grown up if presented right. Yeo do beautiful tubs of fruit compote that are easy to keep in fridge. Beans on toast? Homemade flapjack, banana and glass of milk? I already have same battle with Dd age 5, can't see it getting better! Given the choice she would eat a fab breakfast at about 10, but I need her to be finished by 7.30!
