Weetabix would like you to share your top tips for making breakfast time as stress free as possible. What are your top breakfast tips? Can you share your best breakfast stories with them on this thread? For example, do you run round trying to eat and feed the baby at the same time or is it a calm, relaxed affair in your house?

The best tips and stories will feature on their new page on Mumsnet (coming soon).

Everyone who shares a story or tip on this thread will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will receive a £100 Sainsbury's voucher, from Weetabix.

Thanks MNHQ

We eat together in the morning, I just make sure I allow enough time for lunch prep, breakfast prep and getting ready, (I sound more organised than I am, but somehow I manage it). I think if you just know that you have to get up early enough to get it all ready you just do it. I try to do easy breakfast in the week, cereal, porridge or toast and then at the weekends we have eggs, bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes. On birthdays the birthday person gets to choose breakfast :-)

You can make your own homemade muesli, put milk in and stick it in the fridge the night before and it's ready instantly and tastes even better the following morning.

Yoghurt, fruit and toast sitting at the table here, but find Frusili bars fantastic if in a hurry

Stay in bed and let your husband sort the breakfast out, as well as getting the children dressed and out to school, then peer around the corner - tut loudly, think how much better organised and tidy it would have been if you'd done it - then clear up!

Repeat on a daily basis

Don't let the children try to do their own cereal unsupervised - okay, it's good for them to learn how to do things, but our two cats weren't too impressed with frosties in their dish and my wife was less impressed when she discovered this occurrence ;-) The cats were unscathed and don't seem to have suffered any long term trauma from this incident.
