Breakfast of Champions
Breakfast: The most important meal of the day. I hear this mantra in my head each morning as I try to prepare breakfast for four children, all of who have very different ideas of what is acceptable. There is added pressure to this question now that school is approaching because soon what I feed them in the morning will have a direct impact on the kinds of grades they get and how well they are able to listen in school and how well behaved they are.(Why do I read those parenting magazines anyway?!) I never know what is considered 'good' breakfast food. Waffles are easy...but not healthy. Eggs are healthy...but not easy. Nobody likes cereal in my family...I'm at a loss. I've read that smoothies are great brain food for kids, but who has time to cut up fresh fruit and get out the blender and make smoothies before 7:00? Now, I'm starting to get stressed! If anyone has good breakfast ideas, please let me know. It needs to be healthy, fast, good, and kid approved... Good Luck!
