Actually Sylvia the muffins I feed my daughter are very healthy. They are made at home using real applesauce, berries, high fibre grains [oat bran and flax], milk and pureed vegetables. I use honey for sweetness to cut down on the refined sugar. She drinks a glass of milk with them. Tahdah! Calcium with out the sugar. The muffins I feed her have a higher fibre content than any of the cereal choices you've named. She poops really well...lol.
Sorry to burst the bubble. If they were store bought muffins, then yes, you'd be right, as they use white flour [ with a little bran thrown in] and loads of sugar.
The hot chocolate you feed yours may have lots of milk for calcium but it also has loads of refined sugar. Instant energy, followed by a crash mid morning.

our healthy breakfast (3yrs/5yrs) is :-
Hot chocolate to drink - lots of milk full of calcium.
Porridge or weetabix - with a pot of blueberries/raspberries, for them to add themselves.
Porridge is excellent food, for slow release of energy throughout the morning and is good brain food too.
Weetabix will help their bowel movement, so they'll get it done at home, before school, most of the time.
Toast - with either Jam, Marmite or Bovril spread on. They choose.
Pancakes/Muffins - very unhealthy for anyone to eat for breakfast, let alone a young child. sorry folks! x

I agree with stuff they can eat on the way to school. My son eats alot of breakfasts "on the way".
Teresa - posted on 07/09/2011
Very easy. Find oyt what your kids like. I make a bunch of pancakes on the weekend and then freeze them so all I have to do is put them in the toaster. My son also like English muffins with PB and NUtella, grilled cheese sandwiches are good. Their diet will expand as they grow. He has started liking garlic cheese grits with eggs in a bowl. So it depends on what your child will eat.I don't force him. Morning is rough enough without being forced to eat something you don't like.

I believe in VARIETY!!! I am not is this will work for you but this helps me find my creative side in the morning when I am awake and my creative is still asleep.
On the fridge:
Mon: Oats - favourite flavour / cut up fruit and hand of nuts
Tues: Smoothie (every week we try something new)
Wed: Boiled egg, toast & juice
Thurs: Cerial / Muesli - add whatever your child fancies... some like honey & milk, some like yoghart, some like it just with a little milk... whatever really.
Fri: Oats (2min. oats)
Sat: Whatever we feel like!!!
Sun: WE all sit down for fruit salad & eggs and toast
NOt the most healthy but it works for us - stays interesting and exciting without much effort. TIP: keep childrens food simple. Like if you want them to eat a fruit cut it up in a small bowl next to their plate rather than in their food. Most kids LOVE a plain slice of toast with butter on... as proof! :) I hope this helps

Make waffles or pancakes from scratch on the weekend and pop them into the freezer. Super quick and easy. Most mornings my boys like Vanilla yogurt with whole grain "o"s on top and either juice or milk. Breakfast sandwiches are a fave on school days because they can eat in the car on the way. Smoothies are also a new favorite - and a great way to get my picky almost 9 y/o to try new fruit. Just a little oatmeal, a banana, 1 cup frozen fruit (your choice), some nonfat plain yogurt (about 1/4 cup), 1 cup milk or juice, and a couple of ice cubes. Toss it all into the blender and whiz it up for a great healthy breakfast.

i prefer freshly made foods like sandwiches, pancakes, fruits, veggs , toasts for my kids. i regularly visit the below link for suggestions on diet and other topics related to kids:
Deepti - posted on 02/24/2011
it is must to have a healthy and different variety of breakfast to get maximum nutients for us and kids... taking repititive dishes every morning is boring and not so advisable... if one day is for eggs then other day for some cornflakes or smoothie or some pancakes.. keep on shuffling to keep the interest alive in ur kids... try new and fast to make dishes to make ur kids healthier and happier.
use this link for more recipe ideas...

depending on how old they are & how much time you have. Older kids luv pancakes. Most of them anyways. Throw some fresh cut fruit on top w/ whipped cream yummm! Younger ones my 2 yr old luvs yogurt, I throw some cheerios right on top w/ cut up bananas. Toast with peanut butter & bananas. Scrambled eggs or an omelet with their fav veggies if they have one. If not plain. Mine also luv homemade warm oatmeal 7 I throw fresh strawberries or any fruit they like on top. ;)

LaShawn - posted on 02/13/2011
My kids are ages 14 and 11. So because they normally eat breakfast at school and rarely have time to eat it, I will still get up and make shure they either have a bowl of cereal or have a honey bun and a glass of juice, just something fast to eat.

We absolutely love scrambled eggs & cheese, and to make it a well rounded weekend breakfast we have a little fresh fruit salad to go with it! Delicious!

I buy milled flax seed (great source of Omega), Oatmeal (labeled quick oats), and Gerber baby oatmeal or cereal (with DHA & Probiotics). Premix a bunch of the quick oats with cinnamon, flaxseed, the baby oatmeal/cereal, and brown sugar in some tupperware. Then in the morning you just need to pour some of the mix in a bowl, warm up some water in a mug for 2 minutes, take it out, pour it in the bowl, stir until moistened, and voila a healthy and filling breakfast my son cannot get enough of. It's your choice what fruit you want to give with it (bananas or blueberries are my son's choice and very easy). Seriously, he wants this morning, noon, and night! It's jam packed with so much that's good for him I don't mind it being any meal.

I usually give my daughter milk and mutigrain cheerios, she really likes them i give her froot loops every now and then but not very often.
Suzette - posted on 02/11/2011
I make sure my kids get preservative-free foods. So I slice up some homemade bread, spread some jam or peanut butter on the slices and offer fruit (grapefruit, oranges, grapes, etc.) I also offer either juice, water or milk.
Yadira - posted on 02/11/2011
Sometimes I make milk shakes for my kids and they love it. Just put 1/2 cup crush ice,1 or 1 1/2 cup of milk, 2 or 3 bananas, 2 or 3 eggs and 1 cup of frozen fruts (or just add chocolate or strawberry quick)
Christine - posted on 02/11/2011
oatmeal and a banana its a great boost of vitamin b good for brain health and warm way to start the day
Troy Lizzie - posted on 02/11/2011
porridge, its healthy and filling. you can add fruit and honey to sweeten it up
Lisa - posted on 02/10/2011
Depends on the day. WE have to eat on the go. My little one has an organic yogurt in a tube while I am in the shower. Then in the car she has fruit (apple slices, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, blueberries, bannana). Some mornings when we have more time it is scrambled eggs and sauage. Some days whole wheat toast with a side of organic peanut butter on a spoon (likes peanut butter but not on anything). Weekends, she gets whatever she wants (chix nuggets, cold pizza, pasta,ect....she is her mother's daughter,eating dinner or lunch for breakfast). :0)

I let them choose. Usually, it's cold cereal or oatmeal lately. Chocolate Cherios are a big hit but I don't like it for breakfast. They usually pick out healthy stuff.
Brigitte - posted on 02/10/2011
SInce mornings are usually a little rushed because my daughter is the ultimate pokey puppy, I feel good about serving yogurt and fruit or oatmeal and fruit. It's healthy and nutritious breakfast. When tie permits we do eggs or waffles.

if he likes pasta try making a sauce that has my 5 little ones oblivious to the actual amount of veg being served. i cut up an onion, a couple carrots, a couple stalks of celery, if feeling adventerous a red pepper, lots of garlic. saute in oil add a large can of tomatoes and half a can of water. simmer until soft with some spices like oregano and basil or plain no spices if he doesn't like them. puree with a hand blender until smooth. it will be a bit lighter in colour than traditional marinara sauce but taste the same. grate some parmesan and they know nothing is in there!!!! you can hide many things in purees. we do a lentil soup much the same but add the red lentils after pureeing the veg. cooked in water my kids love it. they do have a hard time eating veg they can see for some reason... but once in a while they will eat a ton and ask for seconds of broccoli or green beans sauted in oil garlic and soy sauce. we just keep trying and hide it a few times a week to make sure they get it.

Kathleen - posted on 02/09/2011
For older kids you can make some vegee pancakes (google it) that taste fabulous! I make three different kinds: beet, carrot and butternut squash, and sweet potato. I make large batches of these and freeze them so they're on hand.
My 20-month old eats an avocado and a blueberry, oatmeal, applesauce muffin every morning. I also make large quantities of these and freeze. Sometimes some organic yogurt on top of that, depending on his appetite.
