Breakfast with the Grublings

My cooperative eaters
I hear tell that toddlers are picky eaters.  Therefore, it is with much pleasure that I introduce to you, our biggest breakfast staple: Green Eggs.

Green Eggs make me feel better about whatever my kids eat for the rest of the day.  I know that they've had an awesome and healthy breakfast, and if they just load up on carbs for lunch or dinner, I have a sense of calm because I know that they've started their day with a belly full of good stuff, anyway.

Green Eggs are ridiculously easy.  Take a plain, ordinary cheese grater.  Use it to grate up about a third of a cup of zucchini.  Saute the zucchini lightly, and then scramble four eggs with it.  Now you have green scrambled eggs for two toddlers.
Cooperative eating at its finest

I top it off with a little cheese (for some reason Parmesan is completely unacceptable), and then serve it to my grublings with a cup of milk, and some fruit.  Usually bananas or clementines.  And on most mornings, some crackers.  But this week, matzoh!

I particularly enjoy calling it "Green Eggs," because I know how much my kids LOVE the Dr. Seuss book.  And the Dr. Seuss cartoon from the '70s.  (I'm a big fan myself.)

In fact, I think everyone should experience this amazing cartoon.  So here it is:

And thus, my children eat a healthy, balanced, quiet meal.  And then I abandon them in the living room to watch the above cartoon (or Sesame Street) while I clean up, get dressed, and generally make myself more like a living person.

...and hello all you blog hoppers!

  10. OMG! You are a super mom. First off, that's a pretty hefty breakfast to make every morning. Secondly, that you can happily let a kid be a kid. I'm not that way and I tend to wipe mouths after every few bites. I know...no fun.
