4. What Does a Typical Breakfast Look Like For Your Kids? And Why?


Dana Stannard:   Cocoa Kids

It depends on the kid. For my oldest daughter, she loves eggs. She would eat them all day long. She prefers an over-easy egg with half a bagel. My son likes either cereal or fruit with a pop-tart. And my youngest daughter usually just chooses what the other two eat. They always have either OJ or milk and always have a daily vitamin. We don’t serve much juice except at breakfast and I always buy the fortified brand. They also like to eat English Muffins and I buy the double fiber ones. They taste very similar to the regular ones and are much healthier.

My kids actually eat eggs and whole wheat toast every single morning. Once in a while they’ll replace it with oatmeal, but usually only once a week. This has become standard because they can make it themselves and we always have bread and eggs, always! I generally don’t make breakfast for them. Even my youngest started making his own eggs in kindergarten!

A typical breakfast for us is something that can be eaten on the go!  Avery likes granola bars or a muffin, fruit (usually a banana), and  yogurt or a cheese stick.

Breakfast must contain at least 3 food groups in it.

Example: Cheerios, rice milk and a piece of fresh fruit.

  • There are 3 different food groups
  • Cheerios are whole grain and contain added B vitamins
  • Rice Milk comes in flavors (such as vanilla) which make the cheerios taste sweeter without adding additional sugar
  • Plant proteins are healthier than animal proteins.
  • Fresh fruit is high in fiber and nutrients.
