"My kids eat fish sticks for breakfast." -- anonymous

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that good habits start early. Will this practice ruin your toddler's chance of developing lifelong healthy eating habits? Do you let your toddler eat anything he wants for breakfast?

We all have secrets and opinions -- so thanks to these brave moms for sharing their honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgemental!
