Easy Grab and Go Breakfasts
The Most Important Meal of the Day
It turns out your grandmother was right. A balanced breakfast is critical to start the day. It can better your child’s progress in education, sports and attention. The word breakfast literally means break the fast; the point of eating breakfast is to break the fast from an overnight sleep. A balanced breakfast includes a good carbohydrate, protein, and a healthy fat. These essential micro -nutrients supply the right mix of energy to sustain your child’s hunger until lunchtime.
However with our busy schedules, breakfast can feel like a chore. We often will resort to fast food on the run but fast food can be high in sugar and does not provide the necessary nutrients our bodies need.
If your child eats breakfast but still feels tired and hungry shortly after, it’s likely they are not getting the right energy fuels from the foods they’re consuming. A breakfast consisting primarily of sugary foods like fruit and fruit juice will just give them a quick, short, burst of energy. After an hour or so, their energy will plummet from the surge of sugar, leaving them hungry again and lacking energy.
