If she likes bagels, she might like bagel sandwiches, like at McDonalds. My kids like me to scramble an egg with a bit of meat, either ham, sausage or bacon, and half a chopped jalapeno pepper, then put a slice of provolone or swiss cheese on a toasted bagel and then put the scrambled egg on top of the swiss and then microwave the whole thing for about 20 seconds until the cheese is good and gloppy. If I have leftover tomatoes or onion or mushrooms sometimes I throw them in, too. This is a good one because it's semi-portable and they can be eating on the fly if necessary.

The only thing I can think that would be bad about a ham and egg breakfast is if you had a lot of eggs or a lot of ham everyday. A one egg breakfast five days a week isn't going to hurt anyone unless they have a pre-existing cholesterol condition. My kids have an egg for breakfast about four to five days a week.

Allen has an egg or two 3-4x a week. I have egg whites 3-4x a week. Eggs are actually a pretty good source of protein.

The school district offers 3 kinds of fresh fruit, several kinds of cold cereal, 1 hot breakfast choice (includes a protein), yogurt with fruit, juice, and milk (both white and chocolate) for breakfast. Dylan usually chose the yogurt with fruit plus additional fruit, or cold cereal with chocolate milk with fruit. It at least would hold him until lunch which in the younger grades was early. 5th grade had the last lunch around 12:30. All kids have the opportunity to eat a snack during morning recess.

Maybe a small tortilla wrapped up with a slice of cheese and a little bit of scrambled egg, or whatever she likes really. Avocado and cheese is good too. Kids seem to like the idea of the rolled up food for some reason.

I agree, it doesn't quite live up to the infomercial but it makes a darn good smoothie!

I agree, the youngest who is my picky eater, loves food rolled up in a tortilla.

You said that you wish you could do bacon and eggs and fruit, etc every day.

I usually have no desire whatsoever to eat anything until at least 9:30 or 10.
