My daughter only have noodles for breakfast everyday. She don't even touch bread, sandwiches or pita. I guess they are dry as compare to the noodles. I tried to spread chocolate cream on the toast and she only finishes the spread. Any tips to share?

Jessica mentioned she tried a chocolate topping - I'm guessing it was nutella or something similar.



but the muffins are a great idea. Chinese or not - fruit is a great addition.

Are you maybe wanting to encourage toast because it's easier than preparing noodles? If so, perhaps she would prefer crackers with dip or dry cereal to bread. What kind of noodles does she eat? Your daughter may have trouble digesting certain grains, such as wheat, but do better with rice.

my son went thru a phase where he only wanted spinach and brownies for every meal, and after that phase he only wanted mashed potatoes for 3 months. the doctor told me as long as he is healthy, these phases are ok. don't push your daughter she will slowly grow out of it. just be sure to have other things available to her if she wants them.

try nutella... also try cookie cutters and cut out some cool shapes and make it special.. i also agree though that you should try fruits and maybe yogurt or maybe you could make muffins (with fruit) and have that

I'm addicted to sweets in the morning and at this stage of my life - noodles seem unnatural.



We get scrambled eggs w/soysauce and a sprinkle of sugar in the raw eggs, I like them that way - it makes my super pastey white american husband want to hurl though, lol



Or rice with milk, cinnamon & sugar



I'm trying to think of what else my grandmother served up...

I am Malaysian Chinese. I prepared her udon mee or soba mee with soy paste soup every morning. Why don't you have that in the morning?

So she likes the wet soggy stuff.. with toast, when it's still hot, put a little bit more butter than you normally would to make it softer, and a tiny bit soggy. This could work. and if she tries to lick the butter off the bread, I'm sorry, that's worth a laugh. If you want her to have bread, try putting toast chunks in oatmeal.

Kate, not many Asians take fruits & veggies for breakfast. I do gave her lots of fruits as her snacks at 3pm. And adds veggies in her meals (lunch & dinner).

I had to look up "breakfast noodles" I'm Japanese and was never served breakfast noodles. Sweet bean paste w/a raw egg = yes, but not breakfast noodles.



So are you Thai or Vietnamese?

Why are you trying to pump her full of carbs? Give her some fruits and veggies. I wouldn't be surprised if she's constipated.

Is there some reason you want he to eat bread if its the grains you want her to have maybe sub wheat noddles for breakfast and try to get her grains in another way I mean after all I love my carbs and if I didnt I would be much happier in the long run as far as thats what I crave and usually what I am eating if I gain weight

what about eggs & bacon? Cereal? Oatmeal? French toast - WAY hard to seperate the cinnamon & sugar from that one.
