I'm simply thinking about the *average* meal. The granola that the average person eats is highly processed and full of additives, same for yogurt, and canned fruit, etc.

I guess I just don't understand why highly processed yogurt and granola is assumed to be healthier than a hot breakfast.

I feed my kids fresh fruit. I make french toast using whole grain bread, eggs and vanilla. I prepare eggs with a very small amount of salt, and pepper. I make pancakes from scratch. I use old fashioned oats for oatmeal (though my kids do add a little brown sugar).

that looks similar to ours, some days ours might include an egg or ham croissant.

Yes, we have peanut free tables in the cafeteria.

While I limit very sugary cereals for my children, especially before school (and especially for my hyper child), I don't see why everything has to be healthy all the time. Don't think that makes you a better parent

Perhaps the assumption is on my part. I know what kkind of yogurt my kids will eat, and I assumet hat it's similar to what the average kid's eating. It's been stated in this thread, several times, that yogurt (and fruit) is healthier than eggs (and pancakes)......

"I think things like healthy cereals, toast, fruit, yogurt are actually going to be healthier for the kids than eggs, pancakes and waffles would be."

"i dont want my kids to have a hot breakfast every morning...unless it was "oatmeal" for helath reasons...."

"I think fruits, yougurts granola are much healthier that french toast and eggs for breakfast."

I'm not even sure what it is that you're arguing. You, and others have stated several times that cereal, yogurt and granola are healthier than eggs, french toast and pancakes (I'm leaving out fruit, b/c fruit can be, and often is, served with any/all of these things). IME, this simply is not true.
