Family Lifestyle Blog: Breakfast on Board



Breakfast has always been the most important meal of the day for both my daughters since they were babies. Even now that they are 7 and 5.5, a quick bowl of cereal before dashing to school just doesn’t cut it for them. 

The school lunches I pack are always a hit or a miss. I often struggle with having a variety of lunch options - send me your recommendations please! So it’s important that I have substantial breakfast options. The girls were getting bored of the usual - cereal, oatmeal, eggs, waffles, pancakes, parfaits so I had to take things up a notch.

I love creating cheese and charcuterie boards, so naturally I had the idea to make a brunch board! I came across this bagel board while searching and this provided a solid starting point for creating this board for the girls. It’s fun to have a variety of options you can enjoy, right?


Bagels, cream cheese, salmon, marmalade, avocado, almond butter, boiled eggs, berries and greens are what I chose. It may seem elaborate but if you have groceries on hand, it’s really easy to put together and so filling! I surprised my hungry little humans earlier this week with this and they wiped it clean. I asked them to try a little bit of everything so it was less overwhelming. My oldest  had me toast her bagel and made a little bagel, cream cheese, salmon and avocado sandwich. “Mommy, have capers next time please,” she said. And my youngest stuck with a bagel, almond butter, boiled eggs and tried some salmon.


It was a fun brunch experiment overall! It’s not practical for rushed school mornings on a regular basis, but I can see myself trying different variations of this on slow weekend mornings. It’s a treat to enjoy delicious food together and I’m grateful my girls are so open-minded when it comes to trying new things.

What are your family's go-to breakfast/brunch options?
