13 Breakfast Ideas Perfect for Back to School Time!


This week we are getting ready to go back to school.  While the kids pack their back packs, I’m planning our meals because once school starts, the craziness of the day gets in the way and I can’t think straight.  This week I’ll be sharing lots of meal ideas and recipes that will, hopefully, help make the back to school season run smoothly in your house.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when the kids are in school.  They can’t snack in the middle of the morning so I need to make sure they have full bellies when they live the house.  I like come up with breakfast ides to surprise them and cook some of their favorites, especially when school is back in session.  If they have a good breakfast, they’ll be in a good mood heading to school.

Check out these breakfast ideas for back to school that your kids may love!
