Be Creative: Breakfast doesn’t have to be eggs and toast. Think about eating what appeals to you in the morning. A simple pasta and fruit salad would be an excellent breakfast. Try a sandwich or baked tortilla chips with some fruit salsa. Even left over pizza is fine if that's what you like to eat!

Use the crockpot: Assemble breakfast in your crockpot the night before, letting it cook while you sleep, then wake up to the delicious aroma of a finished meal.

Get the kids involved: Children are more likely to eat food that they have chosen or prepared. It may help give them a choice of foods you picked, rather than letting them start from scratch.


More Fruit & Veggies: Stir some applesauce into oatmeal. Make bran muffins with shredded carrot. Add a cup of dried fruits or shredded vegetables to a quick bread mix. And kids love simple flavored yogurt dips served with fresh fruit and veggies.


Bread Machine: Use the timer function on your bread machine and wake up to irresistible aroma of fresh bread baking. Check out Bread Machine Basics for hints, tips and recipes.


Try Ethnic Foods: Tortillas, frittatas, porridges and other breakfast foods from around the world will help pique interest, and will teach your children a bit about the country where the food originated.
