Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It jumpstarts your metabolism and gives you the energy your body needs to get through the day. A breakfast full of protein and fiber is the best kind of breakfast, especially for kids. If they start their day with sugary cereal or muffins, or white bread, they will have a sugar crash. A healthy breakfast will keep them steadily energized and able to concentrate. Cereal, bagels, and muffins are quick and easy, which makes them popular back-to-school breakfasts. There are, however, healthy back-to-school breakfasts that are just as quick and easy. Here are a few.
Whole-wheat bread is a great source of fiber, which helps keep you full until lunchtime. Top it off with non-fat cream cheese and vitamin-rich berries, and you have a deliciously healthy breakfast.
