No cereal for you! (in a Seinfeld soup natzi kind of voice)
My children would eat sugary cereal if it was in our home. Over the last few years I have slowly taken cereal out of our life. I rarely buy it and if I do its only healthier cereals. Well as healthy as you find. Now its rare that my kids will eat cold cereal. Actually my 5 year old twins are the only ones who will eat it. I broke the news to the kids and they pretty much didn't care. SHOCKER!!! I thought they would shriek in horror but no they took it like champs.
Here is how we get around not eating cereal.
-Oatmeal-not the prepackaged kind either. Just organic oats bought from the bulk section. Add water and heat. Pretty easy huh? Toppings include one of the following:brown sugar, nuts, fruit, or milk.
-English Muffins topped with my homemade jelly or butter
-Bagels-melted cheese or cream cheese
-Warm fresh bread slices with butter. I make my own bread and they will pass any food if I make homemade bread in the morning. So would I to be honest. Yummy!
-Homemade Muffins-this week its banana muffins
-last but not least cream cheese on saltines. I think my oldest daughter would live off these if I let her. No idea why she loves it but what ever floats her boat. She is a vegetarian so any protein is good I guess.
Which brings out many questions in my head. What do you eat in the morning? Do your kids eat the sugary cereal or prefer something else? How do you get around not buying these cereals? Am I the only crazy one? Well don't answer that!
