Breakfast ideas for daycare kids?

Starting next week I will be watching my 3 nieces along w/ my own daughter in my house during the week! They’ll only be here until 3:00 so I’m needing some quick and easy breakfast, lunch & snack ideas. They are 5, 4, & two 18m olds. Thanks in advance


I make pancakes and freeze ahead of time. You can make different variations if the pancakes.

Make your own lunchables- crackers lunch meat and cheese you can use mini cookie cutters to make shapes. I cook at a large day care and all the above are great ideas. Taco day is also popular - we used shredded chicken seasoned and cheese. We use Gordon’s chicken taco meat and the kids love it. Their favorites are the tacos spaghetti Mac and cheese nuggets - we pretty much have that most weeks.

Breakfast: oatmeal, toast, cereal, waffles, pancakes, eggs, muffins

Snacks: goldfish, fruit, yogurt, veggies and dip, pretzels, cheese and crackers, veggie straws, animal crackers

Lunch: sandwiches deli/pb&j, macaroni and cheese, pizza, chicken fingers, quesadillas, grilled cheese, noodles and tomato sauce, hot dogs, beef bbq, peanut butter crackers
