Handy Breakfasts to Go
In the rush to get everyone out the door in the morning, you may neglect a healthy breakfast or simply drive through for a fast-food sandwich that is handy but definitely not healthy. There are lots of ways to ensure that your kids start the day off on the right foot by filling their bellies with healthful food that they can take to go. Start by rethinking that breakfast sandwich. Two slices of bread with the right fillings is definitely the way to go when you need something portable. But instead of fattening croissants or huge bagels, why not try two slices of multigrain bread, mini bagels, English muffins or even waffles? You could go for some whole-grain tortillas to create a quesadilla with spicy, healthful fillings. The sky's the limit when it comes to sandwich fixings, but be sure to have an array of items sliced up and ready to slap on that healthy sandwich, along with some low-fat spreads like cream cheese, peanut butter and low-sugar jams. Other ideas for to-go breakfasts might include yogurt in a squeezable tube or even a small container of plain yogurt, kicked up with some low-sugar jam and slivered almonds.
