It’s easy to get stuck in a breakfast-time rut. So just in time for the New Year, we thought, why not bring a little excitement back to morning meals? And what better way to do it than by consulting some of the most imaginative, forward-thinking and clever people we know: Kids.



With our partner, Tropicana, we asked parents from around the country to quiz their kids on what they’d serve for breakfast if they could eat anything at all. Here, we present eight delightfully unique and often delicious responses:



What would your kids eat for breakfast if they could have anything at all? We want to hear from you! Let us know in the comments or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #KidMadeBreakfast. And, if the kids had it and you have a picture, show it off and tag it too!









  • 1. Seafood And Sundaes





    Various Pressures



    If Jennifer Lizza, blogger for Outsmarted Mommy let her children make breakfast, she would get seafood and ice cream… together. “My eight year old would make us lobster tails with shrimp and scallops, and my five year old would make us ice cream sundaes over waffles,” said Lizza, “My kids are so different, it's amazing that I made them both.”







  • 2. A Smorgasbord





    Various Pressures



    Koreen Hirakami’s nine-year-old twins have actually made her breakfast, and it was quite the spread: “Apples and oranges, peanut butter sandwiches with crusts cut off, and sushi rice balls with seaweed -- all presented with toothpicks for our dining pleasure.” Did Hirakami eat it all of it? No. “But I did take bites and move it around the plate just like my kids do when they try to hide food they haven't actually eaten,” she said.







  • 3. Soup For The Soul





    Various Pressures



    Johnna Drozdowski’s 13-year-old daughter would like a nice, hot breakfast, however it might not be the steamy eggs, pancakes and waffles you’re thinking of. In fact, if Drozdowski’s teen could have anything in the world for breakfast, she’d choose matzo ball soup: “Because everyone loves a warm bowl of matzo ball soup.”







  • 4. Cookies, Pizza And Cinnamon Rolls





    Various Pressues




    Writer and comedian Nate Smith’s son said his ideal breakfast would be “the most cookies I could make and pizza and cinnamon rolls.” Of course, we had to ask just how many cookies Smith’s son thought he could actually eat. The seven-year old’s response:  "I bet I could make three and eat three....or seven."







  • 5. Breakfast Sandwich





    Various Pressures



    Leanne Goolsby Thompson’s son sometimes makes his mom breakfast. And when he does, he likes to make jelly and honey sandwiches, usually using at least one heel of bread. (In case you’re not familiar with the term, the “heel” is one of a loaf’s two ends.) “He apparently never got the memo that kids don't like crusts or heels,” said Thompson about her seven-year-old son. “I don't like the heel, but I eat it when he makes me a sandwich because I don't want to hurt his feelings.”








  • 6. Snack Food Cereal





    Various Pressures



    Writer Stephanie McMaster’s son has actually made (and eaten) his dream breakfast: “My ingenious then-six-year-old, once poured himself a big bowl of Teddy Grahams like they were cereal, complete with milk,” said McMaster. “I won't lie, I stole a bite and it was pretty amazing.”







  • 7. Eggs And Exactly Four Pieces Of Bacon





    Various Pressures



    Ever since Meghan Yow’s daughter learned how to make scrambled eggs, she makes them any chance that she gets. Yow tells us, “Anyone who comes to our house is immediately informed, ‘I know how to make scrambled eggs’ and then asked, ‘Can I make you some?’” Yow’s daughter doesn’t skimp on the sides either, for her dream breakfast she’d also want “four pieces of bacon” because her mom usually only gives her two.







  • 9. Cereal. Hold The Milk





    Various Pressures



    Amy Oseland’s nine-year-old son doesn’t require much for breakfast. When asked what he would make himself if there were no limits -- he said he’d have a bowl of cereal without the milk. Why dry cereal? Because a gallon of milk is “too heavy” to hold.
