She wakes at 5am every morning, no matter what time she goes to bed

My 19 month old wakes every morning at 5 no matter wht time she goes to bed, I have tried keeping light off, staying quiet - having cuddles etc but 5 is the time she`s awake & her tummy grumbles so loud she needs breakfast by 5.30. She is asleep by 6.15 every night. My 3 year old is similar but thankfully her wakeup is 6am. And again she goes to bed around 6.15.I tried later bedtimes but it didn`t make any difference. Do you have any other suggestions or am I doomed to a life of 5am starts ( I do get alot of house work done before 9am!)
