5.5 month old puppy doesn't like to eat breakfast. Worry?

My pup never really eats his breakfast well. Some days he'll eat half, some days hardly any. He isn't exhibiting any signs of illness or lethargy. He's happy and playful. and he eats his evening meal very well. Just wondering if some dogs just aren't breakfast eaters? Or is it's a dislike for a supplement? I give him extra-c, brewers yeast with garlic, a fish oil pill, and sure grow 100 tabs. He eats food with any combination of these in the evening just fine, but I can't think of anything else.

What are you feeding and how much. He might just be getting picky. I don't think I would supplement with a Vit. with extra Calcium in it. He still is a puppy. Puppies should not get extra Calcium. That is why puppy food and All Life Stages food has only a certain amount in it.
The Fish Oil and the brewers yeast with garlic is good.

Bronson went through a picky stage for a while at about that age. wouldnt eat/pick at his food. I said too bad and took it away if he didn't eat it, that only lasted a few days.
Always ate his dinner though, like he was starving.
