Daughter Won't Eat Breakfast Before School

Hello Ladies, The school year is beginning and I know that it benefits a child when they eat breakfast before going to school. My seven year old daughter is not a big breakfast eater and last year it was a battle to get her to eat before getting on the bus. I asked her if she would try drinking a shake every morning and she said that sounds yummy. Can anyone suggest a good tasting nutritious shake full of vitamins for her to try. I live in a small town and we have a Meijer and Walmart, otherwise it would have to be something I can order...

Nut-free Reqs in School

If you are baking your child's birthday treats for school, and part of the policy states nothing from a factory that processes nuts should be used, does that mean you have to find flour, sugar, and cocoa powder not made in a factory that processes nuts? Or is it just the cake-in-a-box stuff? If so, what brands for these items meet this criterion? I struggle with trying to send in a reasonably "healthy" treat versus being as strictly safe about allergens as I can, and it's almost impossible! Thanks for advice.

Need Recommendations for Best Toy Organization System!

I am going to go out and buy something to organize the piles of toys we have accumulated in our house over the last 4 years - after a good "purge" of course. The Christmas influx has now completely overloaded the plastic bins we already have to hold our 50 million match box cars, art supplies, etc. so I am looking for something that can maybe go vertical. I have seen some systems at Costco and Ikea that look reasonable, but not sure which is best. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
