I read an article today in Healthy Ideas 2012, about healthy and fun breakfast ideas for kids and I would like to share them with you. A lot of the information in the article about creating a healthy breakfast is repetitive if you are at all familiar with healthy eating tips. No high sugar cereals or processed foods which elevate blood sugar levels. Stick with whole wheat and oatmeal to help children retain information they are learning at school. Always add in fresh fruits and vegetables and low fat dairy.
Here are three fun and healthy recipe that put all the information to use.
Breakfast Burrito: Scrambled eggs or egg whites with spinach, cheese wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. Serve with a mild salsa.
PB and J Oatmeal: Top cooked oats with a tablespoon each of almond or peanut butter and all-fruit spread.
My personal favorite....
Banana Dog: Place 1 banana in a toasted whole wheat hot dog bun. Top with tablespoon of almond butter and strawberry or apple slices
