My 3-year-old is starting day care for the first time. I have to be at work very early, so we’ll be waiting at the door at 7AM for school to open everyday. In order to get out of the house this early, I’ll be sending her breakfast to school with her. My question is – I need some ideas for healthy, portable breakfasts that we can grab on the way out the door. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
This is good info for everyone who has to run out the door in the morning, including slow-to-wake children. My favorite portable breakfast is oatmeal — it’s totally no-spill in the car (here’s the hack, including a link to DIY instant oatmeal packets). If her daycare has a microwave, it’s so easy for them to make it there.
You could pack up a bunch of reusable containers with cereal (mixed with slivered almonds and raisins if she’ll eat them) and send along a small container of milk.
Yogurt topped with cereal, granola, or nuts is another option.
Granola bars work in a pinch, but I never find them filling enough. Perhaps a granola bar, a banana, and some milk?
Anyone else have suggestions?
