Superfast Cream Cheese & Fruit Bagel for Breakfast! Make in 2 Minutes or Less!

Fruit on a Cream Cheese Bagel For Breakfast
I'm not going to pretend: it's difficult to get 5 young kids ready for school in the morning! The kids are bathed and the lunches are made the night before, which leaves each child to get dressed, washed, and eat a well-balanced breakfast. I prefer two hours to get the kids ready for the day, but the truth is, I often end up with only one hour to achieve these tasks each morning. And I don't believe in cutting corners--or having the kids show up to school late.

However, the kids can be slow to get ready and sometimes get their priorities mixed up (such as playing, instead of fulfilling their morning duties).  So, to counteract the lost time I spend coaxing the kids to get ready, I often need to pull together a superfast breakfast.
Dempster's Bagels for Breakfast
Dempster's bagels come presliced, and can be served fresh or toasted for breakfast.  I can quickly spread cream cheese on the bagels, and boost the kids' nutrition by adding fresh or frozen (defrosted) fruit.  I try to leave enough time for the kids to sit down at the table together, but this also makes a great grab-and-go breakfast.  

I also love to add carrot and celery shavings to the bagels, and the vegetables add crunch and increase the health of the meal.  We also have a little chive garden in our backyard, and the kids also like adding the onions to their bagels!  (Not for the faint of heart!)
He Likes Fruit on His Bagel!
Blueberries, Strawberries & Peaches
When using frozen fruit on the bagels, my kids like when I microwave them so it's like eating "hot pie".  Note: I microwave the fruit separately, then add it to the cream cheese bagels.  I find that frozen  blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries heat well and can be added easily to Dempster's cream cheese bagels.  Untoasted with fresh fruit, these bagels take about 1 minute to make; or toasted with frozen fruit, it's only 2 minutes from plate to table!  

Even when pressed for time, I like to ensure that the kids have a hearty and nourishing breakfast.  I believe that by eating a good breakfast, the kids perform their best throughout the day--and have enough energy to keep them going!

  7. I am "lucky" that I am up and gone before the kids wake up, so I don't have to do the morning breakfast rush. But my boys sure do love their bagels for breakfast

  10. Breakfast is pretty challenge at our home too and we only have 2 wee little ones. My son loves his bagel toasted with cream cheese or sometimes with just cheese melted on top. He calls it his pizza bagel!

  12. Such a great idea! This year come september I think its gonna be really tricky for how to manage our time properly. My youngest will be going to school, and our schedule is sooo not right for school right now. We totally need to get a routine in place. This breakfast will at least help us get out the door quickly!
