Breakfast Rules out the window

February 28, 2012 - Kristy MacKaben
This morning Johnny ate a tuna fish sandwich for breakfast. Yesterday it was hummus on a pita. This probably disgusts some of you true breakfast eaters. To me, this sounds heavenly. Whoever made the rules about breakfast is insane. Why is it OK to eat a pancake smothered in syrup for breakfast, but it's taboo to eat a salad? It's perfectly acceptable to eat sausage and bacon for breakfast, but God forbid you munch on a hot dog before 11 a.m. I admit I'm a breakfast hater. I'm probably one of the least picky eaters you'll meet...except when it comes to breakfast. I would rather just skip the morning meal all together, but apparently it's supposed to be the most important meal of the day. So, I eat. But, it's not always conventional foods. My new favorite breakfast food is a fruit smoothie made with just pure frozen fruit and skim milk. Yes. It tastes a tad like ice cream. So what? It's better for you than pop tarts, right? That's why I'm pretty lax when it comes to my kids' choices in breakfast foods. One of my least favorite foods in the whole world is cereal. Most of the time, you won't find a box of cereal in my house, which most people find shocking. Scott was a big sugary cereal eater when I met him, but in recent years, he has opted for oatmeal--which for some reason, I actually can stomach. I really have no issues with my kids eating peanut butter sandwiches or even last night's dinner for breakfast. I know this sounds strange, but I feel like that stuff is probably better for you than a bowl of Apple Jacks. That doesn't mean my kids are immune to eating breakfast foods. They'll scarf down waffles, pancakes and muffins as fast as any other kid, and I'm fine with that too. I just think the breakfast rules need to be less stringent. Promise to not judge me if my 2 year old smells like lasagna at 9 a.m.
