There's no doubt about it, weekday mornings can be chaotic getting the kids out the door on time. Don't skip breakfast! It could impact their grades.
According to a study from the nonprofit organization, Share Our Strength, kids who eat breakfast are better at math.
On average, kids who eat breakfast score 17.5 percent higher on math tests than kids who skip breakfast.
Let's face it - kids can be picky eaters. Finding fast and nutritious options they'll eat can be a challenge.
TIP: Before September arrives invite your kids to experiment making breakfasts. Kids are more receptive to eating foods they've helped with; either by selecting the recipe, choosing ingredients or helping prepare. Breakfasts that can be prepared the night before like breakfast parfaits and breakfast cookies are time-savers without losing out on great nutrition. Smoothies made with cereals can be whipped up in the morning. Parfaits, cookies and breakfast smoothies are easily portable, too, so can be eaten on the way to school.
