that's a good idea.


i'm not sure when a.m. breakfast begins and ends but i know when i drop her off in the morning (about 15 mins before school starts) the kids there for breakfast are wrapping up.

FYI....those Carnation breakfast shakes...they can make the smallest & most angelic member of your family a huge gas producer- so beware. The fumes can be toxic.


I don't have specific recipe - I just dump vanilla/fruit yogurt, some milk, extra fruit (bananas & berries) and if needed, some Splenda or honey for added sweetness. I used to add whey

Where did the "bad breakfasts" come from?

Try a magic bullet type blender, those are great and you can make small amounts for each child if needed.

I didn't know that they made Carnation Instant Breakfast for kids now, but we had the regular kind a lot for breakfast growing up. I'm a morning person and my mother is very much NOT, so I was in charge of getting my siblings ready for school. We always either had cereal or Instant Breakfast.

I think "big, bad" as in "lots of food" or "Texas-size". It calls to my mind images of mounds of pancakes, scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, fruit, orange juice and milk.

The "breakfast" that I've seen the kids get at school really disappoints me. It always seems to be just a large piece of French toast and some milk. I don't recall seeing any fruit or protein.
