Breakfast Ideas?


Ok, so I have a question for ya this week:

Big Boy is 3 years old and Baby Girl is 9 months old. While I'm really good at planning dinners, we don't have much of a plan for lunches. It usually falls back on peanut butter and jelly or egg salad sandwiches. Both are great and frugal for Big Boy and I, but I'm not sure what to do for Baby Girl. She's eating table food, but that sure doesn't include sandwiches, let alone peanut butter.

So I'm looking for a few quick and simple ideas, either for Baby Girl or for all of us. Right now the munchkin is lovin' her Gingerbread Waffle, but later... well... what's mama to do?

Hey how about Top Ramen. I no it's not something for all the time but once in awhile in a pinch. Lydia would probably love the noodles.

French toast! You can cut them up tiny enough for her, very easily. Bonus--make a lot, freeze, then just toast in your toaster to warm up for lunch.

If you have a toaster oven, make "toasty cheese." My toddlers loved it. Take a slice of bread, top with your favorite American/cheddar/swiss cheese slice, & put in the toaster oven on 350 until the cheese melts. Let it cool, cut up into strips or little bits, whatever she can handle.

I would stay away from ramen; it's full of salt and fat. Just make up some "tiny shells" or little elbows or fusilli. Add some frozen mixed vegetables or just peas & carrots. Toss in some little bits of chicken, ham, whatever meat you have, and you've got an ice easy little lunch. And some shredded cheese is great with it too. You can serve this warm or cold.
