Fast, Healthful Breakfasts Kids Love
You know the kids should eat a healthful breakfast before they head to the bus stop, right? But sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the morning scramble to get everyone out the door, breakfast can be an afterthought for some families. And while something is better than nothing, there are better solutions than doughnuts, drive-throughs and poptarts.It may take a little preparation, but getting the kids to eat a healthy and quick morning meal can be done. And it should be - kids who don't eat breakfast don't do as well in school as those who do. After fasting all night, the body and brain need glucose, which helps the brain process and remember information. In study after study, breakfast-eating children perform better on various tests than those who don't eat breakfast.
