Healthy Breakfast Choices for Busy Kids
By Genevieve Cunningham
Kids in today's world are busier than ever. They're in more activities, more classes, and have more expectations on their time and success. As parents, we only want what's best for our kids -- which includes keeping them healthy. But how are we supposed to keep busy kids healthy? How is there time for that? It all starts in the morning! If you have busy kids, take a look at these healthy breakfast choices that can keep them healthy and growing for years to come.
Eggs and Toast
Eggs and toast is a classic choice. It provides kids with protein, healthy fat, and whole grains. It's a great way to start the day! And it's a quick choice too. Cooking eggs and toast only takes about five minutes, and there's nothing much to prepare ahead of time. If you like the idea of classic and easy, simple eggs and toast can help your kids start the day off healthy and strong.
Yogurt and Fruit
If you want something that your kids are sure to like, try giving them a bit of fruit and yogurt. This will give them a dose of probiotics -- which helps them keep a healthy gut. And the fruit brings a bit of sweetness with healthy vitamins as well. You can change up the flavor of the yogurt and choose various fruits to keep it interesting. And when you're in a hurry, this can be thrown together in a cup for a quick and easy healthy breakfast on the go.
A smoothie is both delicious and incredibly healthy. If you make the smoothie from scratch, it may require just a little bit of preparation time. But if you don't have enough time in the mornings, you can also buy them already made and ready to go. Kids love this option since it tastes good and feels more like a dessert than a healthy breakfast. This can be a great option for those in a hurry, kids who are resistant to breakfast, or for anyone who needs a change once in a while.
Keeping your kids healthy is definitely important. And it can be challenging when your family is constantly in and out of your home. But starting with a healthy breakfast is a great place to start. Use these breakfast ideas to fuel your kids -- and whole family -- and to keep them healthy and strong every day.
