DIY Kids Self Serve Breakfast Station

Today’s post is sponsored by Little Bites. All opinions are entirely my own. #LoveLittleBites #BacktoSchoolBash.

This Self Serve Breakfast station is the parenting hack you didn’t think you needed!¬† My kid’s school changed locations this year, which means we need to leave the house 20 minutes earlier than last year!¬† Make a self-serve breakfast station where your kids can get themselves breakfast!¬† This breakfast station teaches younger kids independence and gives parents one less task in the morning while trying to get the kids off to school!

Suppose you’re a busy parent!¬† There are so many good reasons why you need to put together this super easy self-serve breakfast station!

It’s relatively quick to throw together- breakfast does not need to be fancy!¬† ¬†You don’t need to spend a ton of time prepping breakfast.¬† I like to line up some fruit, muffins, and cereal for my kids the night before to get themselves in the morning.

While you’re setting out breakfast, I suggest prepping your coffee pot in the evenings as well.¬† Waking up at 5:30 am doesn’t seem bad when you have coffee already brewed and waiting for you!¬†

You can customize your breakfast station- I like to make sure our breakfast station has bananas, apples, and a few things my kids love.  The point is to make sure they eat something before they leave the house.

Keep the breakfast station at a place your kids can reach-¬†I happen to have a countertop “desk” that I use for serving my kid’s fruit and other snacks.¬† You can put out your breakfast station on a portable cart, or you can just set it out at the kitchen table.¬† ¬†Just make sure your kids can help themselves to something to eat in the morning when they wake up.¬† I promise this will make your back-to-school mornings much easier!

Make sure you include food your kids like
