Easy School Breakfast Ideas!

By Patty Liston

My daughter is out school shopping - and that can mean only one thing - school is going to start any day now. Along with back-packs, pencils, folders and the like, moms are also looking at how to serve a good breakfast that is often done, "on-the-go". Hopefully, the following recipes will take some of the stress off mom while providing a good breakfast to start the day with.

Good luck mom!
