    Similar to this except the cereal/toast or fruit/yoghurt alone that was never enough for DS1. He would have fruit with every breakfast though.

    I also used to do baked beans on toast, baked beans & grated cheese on a baked potato (just microwaved the potato).

    Also we use steel cut oats - they take longer to cook so I put them in milk overnight to soak, then it's about the same amount of time as whole rolled oats. They are higher in protein and fibre so more filling still.

    DS1 would also happily eat spaghetti Bol, vege soups, stews and casseroles for breakfast as well.

    Porridge or a boiled egg with tomato and toast.

    They don't need to last until morning tea/recess though, most schools have a fruit break or munch and crunch etc in that first morning session.

    I try to give my DD scrambled eggs or eggs on toast for breakfast. She has breakfast at 6:30/7 and doesn't have morning tea until 10:40. It's a long time so the eggs help to keep her full until morning tea. She doesn't like porridge otherwise I'd use that to mix it up a bit!

    Eggs, we mix it up and do them different ways, French toast, toast and vegimite/baked beans, in summer mths they have fruit yogurt and cheese.
    DD has porridge, but I have to grate Apple into it and add cinnamon, home made granola.
    DS will have ham/sausage with olives and cottage cheese.

    Porridge or toast. We eat at 8 and recess is at 1050. No sip and crunch for us.
