Please suggest ideas for a nutritious, no-mess and (preferably!) tasty breakfast that I can pack for my children to eat in the back of the car.

Egg breakfast muffins. I've never actually tried them but recently read about them and sounds perfect for you. They might need a bit of kitchen roll to wipe their fingers

Bircher muesli. Leave it in the fridge overnight for a highly portable breakfast. I'm still smarting about having a tub of it confiscated at Stamsted airport. Bastards.

I know this sint going to be well liked answer but there is nothing more comforting than a bacon roll or sandwhich for car journeys.
are they anything like our who just want cereal and its a must cant bare to be without cereal for breakie kids hehe(I mean who doesn't need there cereal fix!)but no they had never know anything else nor gone for the toast stuff.so we just got little containers.put portion of branflakes In each for them.small container with fruit.small bottle of milk.sorted.and surprisingly spilt non!
toast or toastie then wrap in foil.
fruit kebabs and some oaty bars.
crunchie nuts.dreid fruit.yoghurt pots.

I'm not car-proud but neither am I going to risk having milk on a car journey. With my less-than-smooth driving, it could go everywhere through no fault of the children's and there's not much that's worse than the smell of spilt milk!
Yes they do love their cereal and dd has been known to eat it dry! But it won't keep me full for very long without some protein so I think I'll go for your suggestion of dried fruit with nuts. Perhaps add some Cheerios into it too! Thanks

Toasted bagels, allow to cool then fill with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

Slices of frittata, sandwich, snack selection - cheese cubes, bread sticks, grapes etc, quiche, anything portable.

We used to leave Cheshire after boiled eggs and then stop around Watford for a sausage toastie en route to Dover for a channel crossing. It used to help pace dd as we used to have a meal on the boat.

There is no better breakfast when travelling than:
a hard boiled egg
a (veggie) sausage roll
a banana
a hot cross bun, teacake or slice of malt loaf

Yogurt with dried fruit and granola

Banana pancakes. Make them really thin & you can add fillings & roll them up. Or normal pancakes.
