    School day mornings with kids look like this: The children quietly filter into the kitchen, washed and clothed, and, without being asked, begin to set the table. As you place your home-baked, multi-step breakfast (including at least 5 fruits and vegetables, all organic, of course) on the table, the children and your partner exclaim how blessed they are to have this time and this food together. Wait, no? That’s not what happens in your house? Mine either. Generally, it’s a mad scramble to throw (hopefully) clean clothes on their moving bodies as I grab a quick piece of fruit or Stonyfield YoKids yogurt squeezer and toss it at them on their way out the door. Listen, mornings are always going to be chaotic, but breakfast doesn’t have to be.
