Well summer vacation has come to an end and school is back in session!! Adjusting from mellow summer days to hectic school mornings can be tough sometimes. Here’s a suggestion, try getting up 15 minutes earlier than you have to every morning. Do a little stretching and calm your mind before you enter into the morning routine with your kids. This little bit of time can help the entire morning go well.
Be sure to remember that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for your children AND for you!! It has been reported that those students that take the time to have breakfast have better concentration during lessons than those that don’t. Remember how much snacking they did from the time they rolled out of bed until supper time. Now remember, they are back to only eating lunch at school, so make sure they leave the house with full bellies so they aren’t “starving” after the first hour! Have a double batch of oatmeal in the fridge, ready to go for the morning!! Add a big scoop of nut butter and stir. Or add some fresh or frozen fruit with some pure vanilla extract or cinnamon. Oatmeal is such a wonderful, HEALTHY food that you can do so much with!!
Smoothies can also be a great breakfast on the go!! And there are so many different varieties!! Just experiment a little and see which your children like best. It is a great way to give your children there fruit and vegetable servings and hide those “yucky” things like spinach. The fruit covers it right up!!
What’s your favorite easy school breakfast??
