Breakfast for Dinner #KidsintheKitchen

I’ve been getting better with meal planning which in turns makes for efficient shopping trips. But you know there all always hiccups in the schedule and time when the best thought out plans fall through. When this happens we rely on old faithful, breakfast for dinner. My kids hear this and they go nuts. They love breakfast food so when they can have it two times in one day I’m the greatest mother in the world.

Since they love it so much I like to get them involved in getting dinner on the table. It doesn’t have to be difficult or dangerous. Mixing, measuring or setting the table all counts as helping in the kitchen.

Do you have a story to share about your kids favorite food or a recipe they’ve created because you were out of milk that one day? I would love for you to join me and my co-hosts, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together and enjoying it and learning something.

  • preparing healthy snacks
  • having a tea party
  • counting skills with m&ms
  • pouring from measuring cups
  • discovering a local restaurant that your kids love
  • creating new family friendly recipes

  1. Betty Baez says

    looks good! ive only done breakfast for dinner once because of course things never go as planned the kids love d it i should do it again soon

  2. If they have a choice, they always choose “Pancakes for Dinner!!!” 🙂

  3. My kiddo loves breakfast for dinner . . . and has already requested pancakes for dinner tonight! 🙂 OK, I’m a dork and don’t think I linked up correctly?? I’m unfamiliar with the linky system you’re using . . . sorry! Let me know if I need to fix it. 🙂

  4. Brinner is always a favorite in our home! DS9 can do most of the cooking for me.

  5. I’ve been trying to get the kids involved in the kitchen as well, particularly because they are picky eaters. My oldest does not like getting his hands “messy” so this is also an exercise for him to know it’s OK to get a little messy (or make a mistake) and we can get cleaned up.

  6. Love this idea! We do not do it enough!

  7. I could totally go for some scrambled eggs and bacon right now. Can you send your kids over to cook for me? 🙂 My husband is not a fan of breakfast for dinner so I have to do that on evenings when he won’t be home for dinner.

  8. Our little one just started helping with cooking in the kitchen. She adores it and it is a great way for her to learn about how her food is made.

  9. What a fun dinner! She was probably so proud of her accomplishment, not to mention, breakfast for dinner is THE BEST!

  10. love breakfast for dinner!!

  11. We love breakfast for dinner, too!! SOOOO GOOD! I really thought Shae was showing you that she washed her hands, LOL!
