I always make sure breakfast is eaten before anyone walks out the door, I don't care what it is as long as they eat. I have a range of cereals start from healthy oats, muesli, weetbix to the less healthy cocoa pops. There is also bread they can toast or get some fruit loaf out of the freezer to toast, weekends they might cook up eggs but if they have to cook bacon I prefer them to do that on the BBQ. My kids can also have just a banana if they are in a rush since it's something healthy they can eat on the way to school.
Personally I always eat some cereal along with my 1 coffee for the day, does not matter what time I get up I always have it as it forms a pattern for the rest of the household to follow. If I don't keep a routine in the house for meals they would skip it if they had the chance.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, if you look at the word & seperate it into the 2 words Break & Fast you will understand why. It is the first meal of the day to break the fasting of food while you have slept hopefully 8 hours. It is the only meal that has a long time gap since the last one you ate so it is the kick start for the day & needs to get you through to your lunch break. That is why I have the rule that we all eat breakfast before going out.
