My current two go-to breakfasts are oatmeal with 1 cup of blackberries and blueberries or 2 poached eggs with a slice of sprouted whole wheat toast and a pat of butter. Not sure how popular either of those would be with children though.
I recently picked up a microwave egg poacher at Bed Bath & Beyond. It works great and so fast--eggs in less than a minute and 1/2. The toast takes longer than the eggs!

Personally, I go with my mood as to whether I want sweet or savoury, and whether I want "breakfast" foods or not.
For savoury "breakfast", then no-crust quiche or mini-quiche "muffins" are ideal, since they can be made ahead and can incorporate whatever veggies I have on hand. They can easily be frozen in individual servings, so are wonderful as a "last minute" choice.
For savoury non-breakfast moods, I really enjoy a bowl of hearty beef or chicken stew, or a warm mixed grain salad with meats and veggies and nuts and cheese (quinoa / teff / wild rice / etc. sauteed with some mixed greens / onions / mushrooms / celery / broccoli, and almonds, and shredded cheddar - in a savoury nut sauce or with just a blast of lemon juice), or a quick stir-fry of meats and veg in a flavourful sauce (which can be tucked in to a wrap or eaten as is). A quick "melt" sandwich is also a favourite for me (some meat slices with cheese on wholegrain bread --- with a side of baked fruits or left-over roasted veggies).
For sweet, I like baked oatmeal or a baked "custard" made with a mix of pureed fruits and veggies, filled with berries and nuts, and topped with plain yogurt (think of the "self-crust pumpkin pie", but use flaxseed and oat bran instead of flour, sweeten with fruits instead of sugar, add in nuts and berries, and use whatever other fruit or veg you like instead of pumpkin). I also enjoy baked fruits (apples or pears, chopped and topped with cinnamon, then baked for an hour or so 'til soft and sweet) mixed with nut butter, nuts, and plain Greek yogurt --- either alone, or on top of a plain omelet.
For a mix, and for those who prefer to "nibble", it's easy to put together a quick plate of sliced meats, hard-boiled eggs, cheese slices, and raw veggies and fruits with a high-protein Greek yogurt based dip.
Sir Terry Pratchett:
"Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.
Like many people, I always struggle in the mornings trying to keep everyone together, keeping them on time, and still eating something healthy. I would love to implement a healthier eating style to our children as I start this journey again. Prep the night before, make the night before, or just make morning of. I'm open for any and all suggestions.
Please leave any recipes that would work for a healthy, hearty breakfast for the mornings for the young ones and myself.
Thanks in advance.
Believe, Walk, & Grow everyday in spirit and mind. God Bless.
