Growing up, my siblings and I often skipped breakfast before heading out to school. When you're a kid, especially when you start getting to middle and high school, chances of you waking up on time are very slim. For us, making a full and "balanced" breakfast just wasn't possible. Now that we're older and my sister is a mom herself, she's discovering easy morning breakfasts that kids can eat on the go and parents can make without much hassle.
Though I don't have any children of my own, I do what I can to help my sister find ways to make her mornings easier now that she has her own child. Even for my friends with children, I do my best to help out with ideas to get their children into eating things that they never have before. One of my friends has a young daughter that hates eggs, so breakfast before school is always so difficult for her. Once I suggested that she make some egg and bacon breakfast cups to go, things got much easier for her in the morning, and her daughter found a way to enjoy eggs.
