Is anyone else like me? The smell of breakfast first thing in the morning, or any food for that matter, makes me feel nauseous. My two children are the same way.
They usually only want to eat substantial amounts of food after at least 10 am. I never eat breakfast only coffee and usually have a big lunch and small dinner.
The kids drink some milk first thing and that's about it. I have tried forcing them to eat, which you know doesn't work, so I just gave up. After all, I understand. Are we really that abnormal? My husband thinks so. He thinks we should be starving like him!
I didn't eat breakfast when I was younger, either. Used to drive my mother crazy! My son is in K, and I know he does try to eat a little something from the cafeteria at school when he gets there- usually around But he always says he never eats but a few bites and I Rudeness - Oi Skall Mates* - Rudeness sure he picks at it like he does at home.
Since they have been reluctant to eat anything much in the morning, I do add Carnation Instant Breakfast to their milk just for my own peace of mind, and do still offer food to them like a cereal bar or bananabut they never really show any interest It usually goes to waste.
I guess I see how it drove my mom crazy. I do like Chinese food and cold fried chicken in the morning, but that's about it. Maybe that's the weird part. I can't stand to eat when I first get up.
I have no appetite until about 10, like you. It grosses me out to see my husband shoving food in his face first thing, but I have to remind myself that he's different from me.
He's actually hungry at that time. My husband? All between 4 and 7 a. As long as I've got a cup of Earl Grey and 2 stevia packets, I'm good to go. Sometimes oatmeal. My son? The Wolfgang Puck of the Breakfast World? He's on an eternal search for "new and different" foods for breakfast. Doesn't like anything "again" as in "I've already HAD cereal!
In his life? Mistake - Moby - MP3 now it's sooooo yesterday to have cereal.
So, yeah, pretty much makes for breakfast hell in my house! I hate breakfasty things for breakfast. They either make me nauseous OR just make me super super hungry seriously, 2 eggs?
Who does that fill up? I have Frosted Mini Wheats, a banana and orange juice I have to for energy. Your kids are the same way as you because that's what they are accustomed to. When Dowster & Vagabond - Get It On The Floor start school, they will for sure have to start eating in the mornings.
My kids are not hungry and would rather not eat when they have to get up for shcool. But I make them eat anyway. You always hear Kids that don't eat breakfast don't do as well in school. Not sure if that's true, but it makes sense to me.
My kids do a Donna Fargo - Hey, Mister Music Man / Shame On Me job eating breakfast if I get them up earlier and let them wash face, get dressed, fully wake up. It's part of the routine, so they don't even question it. The only time I have trouble is if we oversleep a nd they aren't fully awake and alert.
Oh man, I don't do breakfast! But my 3 year old starts off with a massive bowl of wheat cereal or oatmeal, then goes to yoghurt, then banana, and then whatever else he can think of.
Our daughter has never been a breakfast eater. It is always the last thing she could do on her way to school. She had to be at school by in kinder they ate lunch at She said she was starving at As she got older she did not have to be at school tillbut her lunch was at or so again, she had to eat something.
Now that she is in college it is easier, because she can carry stuff with her and eat when ever she wants. But for all of those other years I just really worked with her as to what she tolerate and keep down. They may just have slow metabolisms. If they are in school then you need to discuss their cognitive behavior before lunch so that if they are acting lethargic and not able to focus they may have to eat something high in protein, maybe a slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza in the mornings.
Breakfast does not have to be eggs, pancakes, or cereal. It can be a granola bar that is good with vitamins added, a Carnation instant breakfast packet mixed in the milk, a piece of fruit with some peanut butter for dipping it in.
Something that will feed their brain but not be the traditional foods. I hate breakfast early in the day too. I prefer it late in the evening if given a choice. I eat chili sometimes for breakfast, Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection takes all day for it to digest out of my stomach and I can lay down at nighttime and go to sleep without acid reflux during the nighttime if I eat it early enough in the day.
My mom used to chase me out of the house at 6AM with pop tarts. I'm just not a breakfasty person. I tend to take a fruit bar or oatmeal cookie thing with me and have it later with my 2nd cup of coffee. I would encourage them to drink instant Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection or yogurt smoothie my SD likes to take GoGurt to the bus stop if they can stomach it and then figure they'll have a big lunch later.
I am not an avid breakfast eater. Since I need some energy to work. At least for your kids, start to have some breakfast.
So, they will also follow you. One more thing, you don't necessarily eat the breakfast items in the morning. Start with something you like to eat. I'm the same way, and so is my youngest. As a matter of fact I used to force my daughter to eat something every morning because I thought it was "good" for her and of course because she "needed" to eat something before school. Don't worry about it, I think our bodies are very different and unique, we don't all conform to a three meal structure.
What matters most is that what you eat over the course of a day is healthy and appropriate! I am not a breakfast person, in fact I usually do not eat much until 10am. So no I do not think you are adnormal, it is the way you are.
My daughter is a breakfast eater, cold cereal with no milk and juice. She likes to eat around 8am, does not eat a lot before then but must eat before 9am or she will get headaches. I think the biggest issue is going to be school, have to be there a certain time, the kids can not just eat whenever.
My daughter learned that if you do not eat breakfast before we leave of course I have it ready for her and tell her it is ready then she will have to wait till snack Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection at 10am or lunch at A few times she did not eat breakfast, got carried away with something else and would not listen to me to eat I know Various - LX Lounge in school I never ate breakfast or at most a cereal bar, but I never was too hungry at all, then again in a public school I could get away with a snack out of my backpack when Hype My Dick - Lethal MG - Lethal MG Presents Jumpstylerz In The Mix between classes not as easy in a small private school.
I'm wierd. I have a window. If I eat after 8 and Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection 9, I'm okay. Earlier or later and breakfast doesn't even sound appealing! My sons are the same way. It's a good thing his 'hungry' window is immediately after he wakes up!
I am like you - I am not hungry till around 10am. My 7 yr old son is the same way. My husband and daughter both wake up hungry though. I will make breakfast in the mornings and try to get my son to eat it but he almost never eats a single bite. I will usually eat a little to be a good role model but then I really eat breakfast later around 10 Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection he is already off Aprile 1945 - Hate For Breakfast - Hatecore Connection school!
I just pack him a good morning snack.
