Let’s talk about breakfasts before school.

Jack and Emma’s Pre-Primary school gave them breakfast each morning which meant I didn’t have to feed them before they left. With Jack starting grade 1 now I must make sure he eats before we take him to school. Fortunately, he is pretty much constantly hungry from the moment he wakes up, so it shouldn’t be too difficult……I hope.


Something that will make lunches even easier for me is the return of this smiling character…

Have you seen SASKO Sam back in the shops with his YUMMY loaf in both brown and white bread? The friendly little character that kids (and moms) love is back, just in time for back to school. SASKO Sam is back with the tastiest, softest bread you will find!!!




With SASKO Sam’s return, I have some ideas for breakfasts for kids and mom and dad that will hopefully start everyone’s day off right.

  1. French toast. This is a big winner in our house, everyone is happy to have French toast and we have discovered you can fry it in a little coconut oil which makes it a little healthier and tastes super yummy – coincidentally, like the SASKO Sam Yummy loaf. Cameron often makes this for breakfast.
  2. Cheese bread. I think Jack would eat these all day every day if he could. It is basically cheese melted onto bread. He doesn’t even need the bread toasted, the cheese must just be melted.
  3. Egg mayo sandwich. My kids won’t let me send this to school with them, but it is a nice alternative to scrambled egg and toast. (It is also nice for them to eat in the car if you are running late)
  4. Peanut butter bread cut into shapes. This is a great way to get fussy eaters to eat. Get them to pick out some cookie cutter shapes and cut the bread out for them (NOTE: cut the shapes BEFORE you put the peanut butter on). This is Emma’s favorite thing to eat.
  5. Avo and tomato on toast. This one is more for the adults in our house, my kids aren’t avo fans but if your kids do eat then it is an option for them as well. Sasko Sam|HarassedMom

My advice for moms starting Grade 1 for the first time this year or even Grade R in a Primary school is to PLAN PLAN PLAN. The mornings take on a new meaning once you have a child who needs lunch, extra-mural clothes, homework etc packed. Plan your breakfasts to make it easier for you!

Have you tried the new SASKO Sam Yummy loaf, and what are some of the breakfast your kids enjoy?

    Never heard of the Sasko Sam’s bread. We love French toast in our home too!

    Thanks for the great ideas. My daughter starts preschool today and I now have to pack a snack so we will definitely be trying some of them!

    my kids love breakfast Flowers, I press bread into a silicone muffin tray toast and then put an egg on with a sprinkle of cooked bacon bits and bake for 10 min or till whites are cooked. . #SuperEasy @cazker1

    I haven’t tried SASKO Sam bread, but my family is a fan of many of the breakfasts you mentioned. My kids love French toast, cheesy bread, and peanut butter bread. Yummy!

    Lol, I love the tip on #4 “(NOTE: cut the shapes BEFORE you put the peanut butter on)”. Thank you so much for sharing!

    I will have to look for this bread. I love the tip on cutting the bread before adding the peanut butter as I have made this mistake! 😂
