Back to School Breakfast Menu

Back to school hits ya in the face all at once -- school, homework, tutoring, sports practices, church activities. And then there's the usual sickness, doctors' appointments, orthodontists' appointments, vet visits, dog surgeries, haircuts, etc. And laundry and food. 


Here's how I've managed breakfast.

The challenges: It's hard to please all of the people all of the time. I don't want the children eating cereal every day. I don't want to waste food. I don't want to be a short order cook.

The goals: I want them to eat a variety of simple, nutritious foods.  I want to get some protein in their diet before school and depend less on breads, toasts, muffins, and cereal. I want to know what we are having for breakfast and stay stocked with groceries.  I do not want to fly by the seat of my pants.

The solution: a menu

I have been working this menu for about 3 weeks and it is blessing my soul. 


Monday: eggs + toast

Tuesday: smoothies, bagels + cream cheese

Wednesday: cheese grits

Thursday: cereal + fruit

Friday: sausage biscuits

The original menu had cheese toast instead of bagels + cream cheese and oatmeal instead of cereal, but those both got REJECTED hard. 

I told them they were all communists, especially for not liking oatmeal. What is wrong with you people?! 

I also have a school lunch menu and I will work on sharing that. 


  1. Thanks for sharing your breakfast routine. I look forward to hearing about the lunch routine!

  2. So helpful, thank you!! This simplifies so much
