Back to School Breakfast

A good first day of school starts with a good breakfast and an easy way to tackle the question of “what’s for breakfast” is to write out a weekly menu for the kids. Keeping a few on-the-go breakfast items on hand isn’t a bad idea as well. After all, each one of us had a morning that needed 1 extra snooze button from time to time.
