My 9-year-old son hates breakfast foods. If he has to eat breakfast foods, he wants scrambled eggs and bacon, which are not super fast to make on a school morning.
I am so tired of fighting with him about “eat your waffle” or “eat your turkey sausage” that I finally made him his favorite thing in the world for breakfast – Asian noodles.
I used the Ramen noodles ($1.43 for six packs) and added only the touch of flavor package.
Now I am sure I can do a more healthy version by making a cold batch of wheat noodles with a Thai peanut butter sauce but for right now at least he’s getting something in his stomach, and he’s not complaining!
Walsh noted when a friend got to eat noodles for breakfast when she visited China, and he thought that was the greatest thing in the world.
My girlfriend says that she regularly makes her middle child vegetable soup for breakfast. She likes it. It’s pretty good for her. It’s fast! Done!
What are some great breakfast alternatives that you serve to kids that don’t like oatmeal or grits or frozen waffles? I’m looking for things that provide protein and some carbs without sugar. (I usually give fruit with whatever they are eating.) I am thinking Edamame, cheese sticks or prosciutto-wrapped melon (but it’s expensive). Other thoughts?
