I think I’ve already admitted to being number three on the list of types of moms you see at preschool drop-off. And I’m totally ok with it. That means I’m the mom that frequently forgets my sons backpack and occasionally wears yoga pants to work. Coffee and long lunch breaks are my crutch. Don’t judge.
Perfecting The Art of The Car Breakfast
That also means that yes, my child eats his breakfast in the car on the way to school.
Should I be making scrambled eggs, wheat toast and a side of fruit? Perhaps. But as a wise woman once said, “ain’t no-body got time for that.”
Besides, he doesn’t like breakfast anyway and almost never wants it. Since he was about a year old he wants milk in the morning and that is it. A couple hours after he wakes up he’ll finally ask for something to eat.
We have a few quick options that are easy for us to grab and take with us in the car. I try to keep a few things in the house that will give him a little something on his belly to give him energy and hold him over until 9am snack time.
Breakfasts You Can Eat On The Go
- belVita Bites
- A banana
- Yogurt pouch
- Granola bar with protein
I’ve been scarfing down the belVita bites, too and they are delicious. My favorite is the Mixed Berry and Brady likes the Chocolate. They also go really great with a banana for a super quick breakfast on the go, which I like to call a Morning Win.

I’ve been really surprised at how well these curb my hunger in the morning. For some reason, I always feel even MORE hungry after I eat my breakfast. With these, I feel full.
