Power Breakfasts

Breakfast has long been considered the most important meal of the day. This meal, as the first meal of the day, is one that can energize you and your children for the rest of the day. Also, breakfast does not have to be a grand production; you can make breakfast a simple, nutritious, and refreshing meal that everyone will think is delicious. Use the following simple power breakfast ideas as an easy resource for fun and delicious recipes for you and your family.

  • Yogurt, Fruit, and Granola: Eating yogurt in the morning can help your children eat a portion of their daily dairy servings. In addition to this, adding other ingredients such as fruits and granola can help you eat some of your daily servings of fruit and protein. This meal is simple and light, and it is as easy as cutting up different fruits and sprinkling granola in a cup of yogurt.
  • Eggs and Toast: Protein is an essential part of everyone’s diet, and it is also an important part of your child’s daily food servings. Some tips to making healthy eggs could be to separate the egg whites from the yolk, or even staying away from salt and pepper as you cook the eggs. While eggs are an excellent source of protein, toast can be as well. Look for whole wheat bread, and try to stay away from overly-sugary jams or salty butters. This type of breakfast is also simple, and perhaps you can even make a quick sandwich out of it.
  • Oatmeal and Fruit: Oatmeal is a great source of grain servings for you and your children. Although oatmeal may not be the tastiest of breakfast foods, there are ways to make it delicious and nutritious for your children. Instead of adding brown sugar to your child’s oatmeal (as is traditional for sweetening oatmeal), try adding fruits. All fruits have natural sugars that can healthily and deliciously affect the taste of oatmeal, so try adding different fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, and even bananas and apples.
  • Vegetable and Fruit Smoothies: Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of essential vitamins and minerals that can help your child stay energized throughout the day. You can either make smoothies that are made solely of fruits or solely of vegetables, or you can try mixing both fruits and vegetables into a combined smoothie. Vegetables and fruits are filled with different flavors, so salt and sugar are unnecessary.

This is not an exhaustive list of nutritious power breakfasts. In fact, you can use these simple ideas to create new combinations of foods. You do not have to stay limited to these specific recipes and ideas, go ahead and use your creativity. Perhaps you even want to get your child’s input on what they would like to eat for breakfast. Although their suggestions may not be the healthiest, you can use these ideas to give your child something that is healthy, nutritious, and delicious for them to eat.
