to expect my kids to eat their breakfast in less than half an hour!!!

My two eldest 8 and 5 take so long to eat its getting bloody silly, they only have cereal or toast or something along those lines. I do sit with them and try to jolly them along whilst i'm feeding the younger 2 but they just keep mucking about which makes me shout and puts us all in a bad mood before we even go to school. I don't want to set a timer or anything like that but I just want them to eat breakfast in less time. Has anyone got any ideas of what I can do to hurry them up?

Do you let them watch tv at the same time? or have some other kind of distractions?
If they are dressed and otherwise ready to go when you sit down for breakfast, you could maybe just give them a slice of toast whilst walking to school. If we are late I tend to give them some weetabix to eat on the way.
