Breakfast in a Minute
Ease the morning madness with super-quick meals

Simple Smoothies
Pair a drinkable yogurt with a banana, and breakfast is done in a snap. Try the new Stonyfield YoKids.

Egg Wrap
Scramble eggs in a greased bowl and microwave on high for a minute or until cooked. Wrap them in a tortilla with some shredded cheese.

Cereal Breakfast Bar
Before you go to bed, set out a box or two of cereal (we like Kashi’s Berry Fruitful), cups, bowls, and spoons for everyone. In the morning, just add milk. No decision making required.

Breakfast in a Bag
In a little sandwich bag, combine cereal, your child’s favorite dried fruit, and walnuts. Shake it up!
