Don't feel limited by dinner
The end-of-the-day can be a tricky time for kids, especially younger ones: they can
be tired, cranky, and hangry. For parents whose children are asleep by 7pm,
consider breakfast or brunch. Kids are usually in good spirits after a full night’s
sleep, and plenty of parents would love a mimosa and some adult company after a
5am wake-up call! Many brunch foods (think frittatas or quiches, muffins, savory
quick breads, bagels and spreads) are easy to cook, prep, or buy in advance, making
this earlier meal an entertaining no-brainer. Pajamas optional!
