It’s the calm after the holiday storm…kind of nice, huh?As my boys get older, I take every chance I can to get them around the table. Breakfast is the time we get together every morning. However, my kids are not early risers, so I need to keep breakfast as simple as possible. I have noticed that eating breakfast together really helps our family bond. Here are some tips for keeping breakfast simple.
#1. Have a set time for breakfast.
In my home, we have breakfast at the same time, every morning. It is at 7 AM. My boys know to get up, get dressed, and head downstairs to the table for breakfast. This is something we have established over the years, so they know about it and have no problem showing up.
#2. Make sure you have supplies on hand.
When you’re setting a tradition of having breakfast together, you need to ensure you have the right supplies on hand. I never miss getting our breakfast groceries at the store. And if I do, you better believe I make a late-night run to stock up.
#3. Keep the menu simple.
I can tell you, from experience, that keeping the menu simple is super important. You don’t want to be up at 5 in the morning trying to make your family a gourmet breakfast. Keep things simple and you won’t regret it. Nothing is worth stressing yourself out over and you don’t want to make more work for yourself.
#4. Go with what you know.
In our household, we like to go with what you know. For years, we have enjoyed eating our favorite breakfast foods together. One of our favorite foods to eat for breakfast is cold cereal Big G Cereals at Publix. These cereals have been a staple at our table for years! Some of our favorites include Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, and Tiny Toast. My personal favorites are Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We rely on Big G cereals from Publix to help jumpstart our schedule and you can too. Getting back into a schedule after holiday break was the worse.
