Full & Focused: Healthy Breakfasts for Back to School
We’ve all heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Well, that’s because it is! For kids, this meal is even more important than you might think. It has been proven that kids who eat breakfast every day have an easier time paying attention in class compared to kids who don’t. Nobody can focus when they are hungry! That’s why its important to have a variety of healthy breakfast options to keep your kids full, focused, and interested in eating.
Here are our top healthy Back to School breakfast options:
Fruits are one of the best ways to start your day! Not only are they quick and easy, but also visually appealing and high in natural sugars. This not only makes fruit taste great but will also give them the energy they need for the day. Cut a variety of their favorite fruits up into a salad, or blend them into a smoothie to start their day the right way!
Keto & Protein Pancakes
A healthier spin on an all-time classic! Keto and Protein pancakes are a great way to keep breakfast fun while also prioritizing their nutrition. Keto pancake mix has less sugar and carbs than normal ones do. Protein pancake mix has more protein which will keep them full for longer and help support their growth.
If you have a picky eater who won’t dare touch scrambled eggs, you might want to try egg whites. Egg whites contain all the nutritional value of an egg, minus the cholesterol and yolky taste. This might just be what takes a timeless breakfast classic from yuck to yum!
Oats are one of the healthiest breakfast options out there! In simple terms – oats are low in everything bad for you, and high in all the stuff your body needs. Oats can sometimes get boring though. Try adding different fruits, cinnamon, peanut butter, or honey to keep things fresh!
