For the sake of time, and to anticipate what they might have a taste for, try to plan for breakfast the night before. Also, healthier breakfasts don’t always have to be time-consuming, or made from scratch.

Here are some healthy ideas:

  • Whole-wheat bagel, cream cheese and a side of fruit
  • Pre-packaged multi-grain pancakes/waffles and frozen turkey sausage
  • Yogurt, fruit, and a whole-wheat bagel or slice of toast
  • Low-sugar, multi-grain  cereal with low-fat milk and fresh fruit
  • Whole-grain English muffin with peanut butter and a glass of low-fat milk
  • A breakfast burrito with scrambled egg and grated low-fat cheese and fresh fruit

If time is a factor, make breakfast portable, such as sandwiches, dry multi-grain cereal in a sandwich baggie and an individual carton of milk. Or, grab a Nutrigrain bar and a piece of fruit.

Breakfasts To Avoid

Avoid giving children sweeter foods for breakfast, such as doughnuts, pastries, or cereals that are higher in sugar.
