Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal of the Day?
You have heard it before. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But with today’s demands on our schedules, breakfast can be left by the wayside. Kids that eat morning meals have higher school attendance, solve problems more easily and are more likely to maintain a healthy weight.
Here are 3 easy breakfast ideas.
- Eating On The Go.
If time is an issue, know that breakfast does not have to be complicated to be healthy. Pair a banana with peanut butter on toast. Fruit, whole-grain cereal and milk are another good choice. You could also serve plain Greek yogurt with fruit and whole-grain granola.
- Oatmeal Options.
Whole grain oatmeal is a nutritious and filling option. Opt for no sugar added options, but jazz it up with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Prepare it with low-fat milk for a more filling choice. Add in chopped fruit and nuts for even more flavor.
- Add protein.
If you have time, eggs are a great breakfast option for protein and nutrients. Eggs can also be hardboiled in advance and stored in the fridge for a great grab and go option. Pair with whole-grain toast and fruit for a complete meal.
Breakfast does not have to be elaborate to be healthy, but it is important to have something to eat in the morning. Eating in the AM is healthy habit that kids will have for life! At KareBoost Health, we have lots of great meal ideas to start your day and more.
