1. My kids will eat them.
2. They must be freezable.
3. They must be fast.
4. They must be healthy, i.e. more than just empty calories or sugary snacks.
This may sound simple, but it wasn't. My idea of fast isn't most cookbook author's idea of fast. Really, I'm not a morning person. Really. So something that can be ready and eaten in 10 minutes is what I'm looking for. My little Vincer has a rough time with breakfast. He's not hungry when he first gets up, but he doesn't get up early enough to be awake long enough before it's time to go to get hungry, so things that are portable work well for him. The 7 minute drive in the car is usually enough time for him to down his breakfast and be ready for school (general with food on his face, but that's why I carry baby wipes in my purse.)
