Mom Confessions: My Toddlers Eat Pizza for Breakfast


mom confessionsIt's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession:

"My kids have had pizza for breakfast. At least they are eating something and have food in their stomachs. I would rather feed them a non-traditional breakfast than have them be hungry!" -- anonymous

"I give my toddlers chicken nuggets and french fries first thing in the morning if they want it." -- anonymous

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


Should moms let their toddlers eat dinner-type fast-food or convenience food for breakfast?

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!

Funny, my 3yr. old just asked for pizza for breakfest two days ago! And you know what? I let him have it! LOL. So long as he eats something (not unhealthy stuff) then I'm glad. I thought it was cute that he wanted that first thing!
