The Breakfast Routine

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.

With six people running around our house on any given day, breakfast is somewhat of a chaotic event!  During the summer, however, we do have a far more laid-back routine that we follow.  Being the fact that Monte leaves for work so early, he typically grabs a banana and his cup of coffee and is out the door, making his breakfast routine pretty simple.  The rest of us are the complicated factors!  During the week, my mornings almost always start out with Colin coming into my room (usually around 7:00 or 7:30am) to let me know that he’s ready to eat.  After a quick trip to the bathroom, I find myself in the kitchen trying to find out what my four-year-old is ordering for breakfast that morning.  Monte and I do our best to make sure that the kids get to enjoy their breakfast, and with that we eat a lot of cereal in our house!  My kids absolutely love Frosted Flakes, Cocoa Krispies, Froot Loops, all flavors of Special K as well as the simplicity and deliciousness of Rice Krispies; we even splurge on the occasional Pop Tart.  I’m pretty positive that my kids think these cereals are their little taste of Heaven on Earth!  Cereal is a pretty common factor in our morning routine, especially since there are so many of us.  While some days the kids ask for something such as oatmeal or eggs for breakfast, truly I would say at least five out of seven days they get to enjoy having cereal.

What happens on those remaining two days, then?  Well, Saturday is an especially wonderful morning filled with a tradition that has been going on since long before I lived here; Saturday is pancake or waffle morning!  Every Saturday morning we make either pancakes or waffles for the kids (who am I kidding, there really is no “we” in that, as Monte almost always does the preparation and cooking for this!) as well as a side of bacon.  While this is something the kids just love, I am not a fan of pancakes and I really don’t like bacon at all, so I still typically still enjoy my cereal on Saturday mornings! 

Sometimes during the school year the kids convince me of their extreme need to have pancakes for breakfast, so on occasion I do get up way too early and prepare this warm breakfast for them.  This happened to be one of those particular mornings where Claire was up and enjoying pancakes around 6:00am!  I'm just thankful that she's in the picture and not me, because I think I would have looked far more tired than happy!


Our Sunday routine often turns into a fend-for-yourself type of morning again, as we’re usually rushing around to get ready for church.  What does that look like?  A whole lot of cereal!  With a large family, we are looking for the fastest and easiest approach to breakfast, without creating a huge mess of our kitchen.  With two other meals on the plan for the day, it’s always appreciated to have at least one meal go by that doesn’t require a ton of clean-up afterward!  If the kids don’t opt for cereal on Sunday morning, it is replaced by a bagel or toast with a side of fruit.

No matter what day of the week it is, the one common factor that we work with is simplicity.  What’s the common factor that drives your families morning routine?!

  2. I like to do hot breakfasts for my kids b/c when they have cereal they get hungry again pretty quick. For me, it is easiest to make a huge batch of pancakes and serve it 2-3 days in a row (not that I am always organized enough to do this:)

  3. Our morning breakfasts are usually on the run. I grad myself a breakfast bar for work and then my little ones eat at the day care!

  13. I usually grab a Kashi Bar, a piece of WW string cheese and a piece of fruit as I'm headed out the door. Cereal w/almond milk and fruit is something I especially look forward to on the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Many days I skip breakfast (I know, horrible) but I always get a mocha light frapp from Starbucks in the summer or a vanilla latte in cold or rainy weather. Day just isn't right without coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  15. My breakfasts are typically something simple that I can eat on my way to work, such as a muffin or a bagel. My toddler gets a bag of cereal to eat in the car and the baby gets nursed. Hubby usually also grabs something quick and easy to eat while he's running out the door too.

  17. P.S. One tip that we have, is to mix Rice Krispies cereal with "treat cereal", that way they get a bit of both :) I mix it up right in the cereal containers we use to store the cereal.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I could use the gift card. :) I usually only have a granola bar for breakfast. Haha.

  19. I am so NOT a morning person! For breakfast I eat a Special K Bar (Strawberry) at my desk. Every. Single. Day. Much easier than trying to grab something before I leave for work. Plus they're yummy!

  20. I go for whatever is quick and easy. Toast usually. BORING!

  21. My breakfasts vary, I must say. Frosted mini wheats are what jazzes me right now...but that will change in another week or two...

    I was stuck on yogurt, fruit and whipped cream for a while. I know, sounds like dessert. I'm kinda that way...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I eat the same every morning egg white, turkey sausage link on a 100 calorie bagel! I eat cereal for dinner I bet twice a week- Yum! Now I am hungry!

  31. I love the prospect of free money!
    I struggle a lot with breakfast since I usually sleep a little longer than I should each morning. If I eat cereal, I eat it dry. . .because who would ever think to have cereal AND milk in the house at the same time? Otherwise, I do my best to keep muffins in the freezer so I can grab one, throw it in the microwave and go!

  37. Our breakfast routine in the mornings is usually a chocolate chip toaster waffle for my daughter as we're heading out the door. Weekends are more fun though as we usually go out to breakfast at least one of the days...huge treat! I love breakfast time because it's the one meal where my 6 year old is not picky.

  38. I try to make healthy things that include a fruit, protein, and carbs. The easiest thing is peanut butter with honey/jelly and banana.

  55. I'm all about breakfast...it's a very necessary start to my day. The menu varies, but cereal is definitely in the mix! :) Though I know we were often deprived of 'sweet' cereals as kids, I often crave mom's homemade granola!

  77. Oh, I really like that ... simplicity. The common factor to our mornings is similar ... we enjoy calm mornings. Our kids are grown so we enjoy a cup of coffee while we watch the critters who come to our feeders in the yard for their breakfast. Then ... we get busy with our day. We're not much for breakfast but once in awhile, on the weekend, we have a brunch ... that's fun too!

  87. It is quite a TRAGIC event when the cereal has run out in our house... You kiddos are lucky they get all of the sugary goodness, I try to stick to boring chex or crispix but they LOVE Noisy cereal AKA Rick Krispies!!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. We do a lot of whole-grain frozen waffles with eggs in the mornings. It's quick and easy and not too sugary.

  89. The thing that drives the morning routine is whether this Mom got enough sleep and how fast she can drink her coffee!

  120. I work 2nd shift so I sometimes don't go to bed until 3am. Needless to say, mornings consist of my husband calling and yelling into the answering machine to wake me up so I can get our daughter up and going for school...then I sit on the couch in a stupor until she leaves...it's cereal all the way for breakfast because if I try to use the stove, I'd set the house on fire, for sure.

    I have a huge pet peeve about eating before school..if she skips breakfast I feel like the world's worst mommy so there's a lot of me yelling to "EAT SOMETHING" in the morning as she's trying to get ready. Even a granola bar eases my mom-guilt.

  128. My two sons are completely different. One has to eat as soon as he gets up and the other needs to be awake for a while before he can eat breakfast. I let the little one eat a yogurt as soon as he gets up and then when the older one is ready, I’ll make them bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or a toasted English muffin. On the weekends, I try to do a nice family breakfast of pancakes or eggs and bacon.

  135. My 2 little grandsons arrive at my house every weekday at 6:30 AM. I feed both a bowl of cereal and toast and jelly usually before putting the 2 year old back to bed, and taking the 5 year old to school. Usually skipping breakfast myself.

  137. There are days when I make bacon and eggs, or pancakes, mostly just toast. But most days, my kids beat me out of bed and have some cereal in them before I even open my eyes!

  141. Most days, we eat something quick and easy like toast or cereal because we are usually headed out the door for work or some other activity. On the days when we don't have anything going on, I like to make waffles or egg and cheese English muffin sandwiches.

  144. I'm so fortunate that my wonderful husband often cooks a hot breakfast for us that is usually pancakes or eggs or french toast. The only down side is that he usually makes a mess that I get to clean up. But the delicious breakfast eating moments we have together is worth it.

  146. We do cereal or toaster waffles during the weekdays and then the works (pancakes, eggs, toast, bacon, etc) on the weekends when we have more time! Awesome giveaway by the way!

  147. Since I'm not a milk drinker, my favorite way to eat cereal is as Rice Krispy Treats or Peanut Butter cereal bars. My husband and kids eat breakfast every day. On weekdays, it's usually cold cereal or PopTarts. If we have time on the weekend, we usually cook.

  180. Our typical morning routine is that I wake up first with the baby and make her and me oatmeal. THen our two older daughters wake up and make themselves Eggos and later my son and husband wake up last and have bowls of cereal. We never eat breakfast together but we always eat dinner as a family.
