Once mid summer arrives, heading back to school is never far from my kids minds (or mine).  The kids are thinking about what they’re going to wear and what classes they’re going to be in, and I’m thinking about all the planning, organization and meal ideas that come with the busyness of this time of year.

This year I have two kids going into junior high (oh my word!) and one heading into grade two, so we’ll be busy especially in the mornings.  One thing I have always held firmly on in our home is that you have to eat breakfast, not just grab a snack and go, you have to sit down and eat something.  Eating breakfast wakes them up and gets them ready for the challenges of the day.  Even though getting everyone to sit down can sometimes be challenging when time is limited, it’s something I’ve always insisted on. The kids know this and it’s just a part of their morning routines.

The challenge for me with breakfast is providing a variety of healthy food choices so the kids don’t get bored. I can’t whip up an elaborate meal in the morning, and honestly cereal five times a week can get very very boring.  So I also try to offer things like granola, frozen homemade pancakes, and scrambled eggs.

Recently I had the chance to try Bagel Bites as a new breakfast idea, and I wanted to include these in our weekday breakfast routine.  The Breakfast Bagel Bites come in four flavours:  Bacon & Cheese; Bacon, Sausage & Cheese; Sausage, Egg & Cheese; and Bacon, Egg & Cheese.  These mini-bagels are baked, not fried, and are topped with real cheese and quality eggs and meats.

My kids really enjoyed the Breakfast Bagel Bites…there was enough toppings to satisfy their love of cheese, the meats and egg were flavourful and the bagels were perfectly soft inside and crunchy on the outside.  And I was happy because they’re a great high protein option for the kids’ breakfast when I don’t have the time in the morning to prepare a big breakfast.  They’re easy to make and quick to serve, just two-and-a-half minutes prepared by microwave, or 15 minutes by oven.

While the bites are in the oven baking, it gives me a few minutes to put together an assortment of fresh fruit and juices to serve along side them.  I love that in 15 minutes I can have a healthy, well-rounded breakfast ready for the kids to enjoy.  I just arrange everything buffet-style on the table and the kids can help themselves!

    Yum! These looks delicious. I am finding more and more that I don’t have the time to cook from scratch but it is lovely to have an alternative!

      SO true! I find with the kids getting older and into more activities, school mornings can be so hectic. I like to have alternatives too!
