- The Bellarine Peninsula, located Southwest of Melbourne, Victoria, has been a hotspot for timeless beaches and historic towns like Queenscliff and Portarlington.
If you've got children, I understand that this isn't always possible. Children should always come first. But if you don't show up for your classes, you're not getting that education we discussed in No. 1.
- Egg on an English muffin This is such a great breakfast. We use a whole wheat English muffin. My kids love it, and the eggs can be made in advance and warmed. You can add any desired topping too. Two of my kids love cheese on their eggs, and one child just wants the egg without the muffin. You can serve it so many ways, and you can add a side of fruit. And it doubles as a great lunch. My kids like it cold and sent to school for a special lunch!
Another similar egg breakfast is a veggie egg muffin. It’s another make ahead nutrition-packed item that you can grab and go.
- Oatmeal. Oatmeal is such a versatile breakfast option! We recently started baking it in the oven. That way, I can start it when I wake up and not have to hover over it to make sure it isn’t boiling over in the microwave or on the stove, which has happened to me way too many times! I combine 1 cup of oatmeal, 2.5 cups of water, and a pinch of salt in a microwave-safe bowl that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. I usually give it a stir midway through. When I take it out of the oven, I stir in about a teaspoon of butter, then I let the kids add their own toppings. Raisins, walnuts and pecans are the favorites in our house. Another option is an oatmeal bar. You may not have time to provide as many options, but pick one or two new options for your kids to experiment with different flavors when you can.
- Muffins- Easy to make ahead and freeze for whenever you need them! Whether they are served as the focal point of the breakfast, or made into mini muffins and served on the side- muffins can definitely be packed with great nutrition for your family. Here are some of our favorites!
- Toast. The opportunities for creating a healthy breakfast starting with a slice of whole wheat toast are practically endless.
- Smoothie- Is a drink the only thing your child has the time or tolerance for in the morning? No worries. It’s a great way to pack a ton of nutrition into a glass! There are endless combinations you can try, but here are some of our favorites!
- Breakfast burrito– A breakfast burrito can be anything you want it to be. How about eggs, cubed ham, spinach and salsa? Or maybe eggs, homemade bacon bits, cheese and chopped up peppers? Let your on-hand ingredients inspire you.
- Nut butter and banana roll up on a whole wheat tortilla. And add other ingredients to change it up, like maybe a tiny bit of honey, or a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips, or some granola.
- What about overnight oats? These are made the night ahead making them the perfect grab-n-go breakfast. They’re also super adaptable and packed with nutrition.
- Whole wheat pancakes served up with walnuts and fruit on top. Pancakes can be made in advance and frozen to defrost as needed.
Don’t forget about getting your child involved too. Depending on his age, he can make his own peanut butter wrap, warm up his own egg muffin, toast his own bread, whisk the eggs, etc. And if getting involved with the cooking is too much for a school morning, maybe he can help with the make ahead foods, such as overnight oats and muffins. This saves some time for you, and he’ll be more likely to eat a good breakfast if he is part of the delicious creation.
