DD started Middle school yesterday and she is already acting like a teen!

She doesn't want breakfast! She needs to eat to keep her blood sugar level or she gets REALLY MOODY more than than a teen - lol

I need some Quick on the go Breakfast Ideas she can eat in the car on the way to school. I have already tried:

1 - yogurt w/fruit and a piece of bacon - she feed the dog the bacon on the way out the door and only 1/4 of the fruit

2-Tried toast with cinn and sugar - nope no go saw her throw that one in the trash.

She tells me she just isn't hungry - I would believe her but she has ALWAYS been a BIG EATER!

Give me those idea's people.... either that or please switch places with me until she's out of High School! (j/k)

I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day but if her eating habits and appetite are normal for lunch and dinner then I'd not worry. Maybe pack some easily portable snacks so she can eat when she's ready later on in the morning?

Apples, hm granola bars/breakfast bars, fruit leathers, fruit cups, apple sauce cups, healthy versions of muffins etc along with a bottle of water.

I also agree with finding out why she doesn't want to eat breakky at home, even if its something small. Maybe she's met up with a new friend and they have breakky together? Does she have her own $ to buy something, is she able to go out and buy something before school starts? Is there a breakky program offered at her school? Maybe her friend is bringing something to share for the both of them?

Just have WILL get through this :)
