People ask me all the time how I get my kids to eat breakfast before school. I guess most kids have a hard time getting up and eating right away.  For us it’s just never been an option. Breakfast is important, and we don’t skip it, ever.

I think it helps when you make them them a breakfast that they like. I may not enjoy getting up early, but two or three days a week I get up a few minutes earlier than usual to make them pancakes or waffles before school. Charlie likes eggs, Stella cereal, so those make an appearance too.

And I always try to have muffins on hand. One of my favorites lately are these banana blueberry muffins. They are a great way to use up ripe bananas, which we always seem to have on the counter.

On mornings when I  struggle getting out of bed (like today) muffins make a great, fast breakfast paired with fruit or yogurt, and the extras make great lunch box or after school snacks. And with teenagers in the house we go through a LOT of after school snacks.
