Breakfast: A Must For Your Kids
writes, "While adults need to eat breakfast each day to perform their best, kids need it even more. Their growing bodies and developing brains rely heavily on the regular intake of food. If you and your kids regularly skip breakfast in the interest of saving time, calories, or getting a few more minutes of sleep, remember that eating a wholesome, nutritious morning meal will probably save you time in the long run."

By recharging the brain and body, you'll be more efficient in just about everything you do. Interestingly, studies show that kids who skip breakfast are tardy and absent from school more often than children who eat breakfast on a regular basis.

Preparing a good breakfast can be as quick and easy as splashing some milk over cereal, grabbing a snack bar or pre-making a smoothie the night before. If you and your kids seem unable to make time for breakfast, consider enrolling your children in a school breakfast program.

According to research, skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. It's important for parents to educate their kids about the importance of the morning meal and the role it plays in maintaining good health and preventing obesity.

Quick ideas: Fiber friendly fruits such as raisins, applesauce, an apple, or a banana. Eat a minimum of 5 grams of protein, such as one egg, 1/4 cup of milk, or a piece of bacon. Avoid high sugar and processed foods. Try an instant oatmeal idea, or quick smoothie!
