I think your DP and mine are brothers... Lol.
I remember when I was a kid, my mum used to get up and make dad his breakfast and pack his lunch at 4:30 in the morning.
Years later I always swore I would never do it so that's how it is.
DP refuses to make himself something so he gets nothing and I don't get woken up.
My DP drives trucks so takes an esky to work (which I pack the night before!). For his 12-14 hour day he gets 2 pieces of fruit, 2 muesli bars, cruskits with cheese, rice crackers/funsize pack of chips, fruit/jelly cup, yoghurt and a boiled egg. Plus leftovers or a sandwich for lunch.
He's a bit weird and eats the rice crackers or chips at 6am for breakfast. Whatever - it's all food!

Breakfast on the go
Just make him an extra sandwich the night before that he can scoff down on his way?
Or if you have left over dinner, leave it covered in a container so he can just zap it and eat it while he travels?
Those would be my two options.
I'm also a lazy morning person and can barely be bothered to make a bowl of cereal before I walk to uni so I grab an up and go. The litre ones are better value so you could always fill up a little drink bottle with it and leave it in the fridge for him to grab as he leaves.

He is not big on fruit
Ideas im using....
Banana bread - i have a great sugar free recipe.
cheese and bacon rolls - im sure he can handle nuking it for 20 seconds
pre made sandwiches that he can chuck in a toastie maker (lets just hope he doesnt actually suggest i toast it!! - he wont even make himself toast in the morning!!)

I have those squeezy breakfast yoghurts. Vaalia ones. I have them while I'm driving. I'm not one who'll get up earlier than I need to... certainly not early enough to fit breakfast in! So I just have that, so I can do it while I'm doing something else.
Smoothie is also probably a good option... if you can prep all ingredients night before so it can just be chucked in a blender or whatever the next morning quickly. Different ingredients each day.
Or what about just a sandwich? You can combine protein and carbs easily enough in one of those.

Re: Breakfast on the go
Can you soak some oats & frozen fruit overnight, then he just has to microwave it? the frozen fruit gives it a nice sweet hit. Or is that too hard?! You are very sweet looking after him like that, and I can definitely see the logic in the cost saving... Plus all that ready-to-go stuff is utter junk!
I also like the crackers & cheese idea, or the pull aparts, super-quick & easy, absolute minimal effort.

I just thought of another idea. Raisin toast
He just has to toast it and butter it. Or maybe thats too hard

Breakfast on the go
Subbing, I tend to just eat a banana for breakfast. Not really enough I don't think.
