Anyone have any ideas for very quick breakfasts for toddlers? Ours starts daycare next week and will be getting dropped off at 7 am. We will have to wake her up, feed her quickly and get her rushed out the door. I have all kinds of regular breakfast foods ideas but quick consumption is the key here. My husband will be dropping her off and he is very fussy about his sports car so we cant be giving her messy things that she can eat enroute either. I am sure he would allow her to eat in the car if its not messy though. Any ideas wouldbe great - thanks...

I think that a clean car and children is not the best combination.

My kids love dry toaster waffles, also another idea is dry cereal and a sippy cup of juice of milk

I don't know if you mean "frozen" by dry, but my kids are fond of frozen waffles--I have no idea why.

You can give her dry cereal and a cup of milk (same thing as cereal but easy to take along)! Also a cereal bar and some fruit is an option too!

My little girl inherited my love of apples, and she starts the day with an apple, cut up into slices or small pieces =8-)

Our standard breakfast rotation, from which our son gets to choose, is: - instant oatmeal + drink (oatmeal gets prepared before we get him dressed and stuck in the fridge to cool off, alternately we mix it with applesauce, frozen fruit, or milk to cool it down) - peanut butter & jam on bread + drink - peanut butter & jam on bagel + drink - cereal with blueberries & milk + drink - hard boiled egg + toast + drink (boil eggs day before, serve cold)

We allow about 15 mins for breakfast. We get our son up at 6:20am, eat by 6:40am, and out the door for about 7am.

How old is your son? Can he use a spoon himself?

when I posted this he was just shy of 3 years old, and he could "use" a spoon, although not always neatly (that's where a good bib with a catch pocket at the bottom comes in). Now he is going on 4, and has much better control with utensils (though I think he still prefers to use his fingers.)

Most morning I give my daughter cut up fruit, dry cereal and a minigo yogurt. Sometimes she has toast with almond butter and some mornings she gets scrambled eggs (only 1 to 1.5 minutes in the microwave, it really is easier then you would think).

+1 for different breakfast combinations! I think its vital to have different things to eat!

Eggy bread is one of my sons favorites
