Does she just hate breakfast food or is she truly not hungry?


For me, it's a little of both. I really don't like traditional breakfast foods and I don't feel like eating until 9:30. I know that doesn't work with her schedule (or mine either, for that matter!), but does she have a snack or break time?

Sometimes it can be neither, I think. I LOVE breakfast and have to eat it every day or else I get cranky, but I can only eat it so early in the morning. Usually breakfast is my first order of business, but if it's before 6am then I have to wait a little while because if I eat too early it will make me a bit queasy. I'm hungry, and I want breakfast, but I can't eat it too soon in the day. It's like my gastrointestinal system hasn't woken up yet. Maybe some people that don't like having breakfast are the same way, except that instead of 6am it's closer to 10am before they can stomach solid food.

Big, possibly. Bad? Nope. A slice or two of ham, a scrambled egg or two, and a piece of fruit can be an extremely healthy and nutritious breakfast.


Things don't have to relate to exactly what was written, but when it's said in response to a particular post, and the wording is such that readers assume it is related back to the post that it's in response to, then keeping it in the same context is generally a good idea.

That's the way I would read it as well...I was just trying to figure out how ham, eggs and fruit would mean a big and bad breakfast.

I agree....I read somewhere (and I can't recall where) that stated that protein in the mornings helped school age children.

Try the mini-bagels, if someone isn't that hungry in the morning a smaller portion might be more appealing.
