This article, entitled "Quick Fixes for a Healthy Breakfast," comes from Melanie Bloom, MomsEveryday correspondent from Lincoln, NE.
We've all heard that kids do better in school when they've had a good breakfast, but for various reasons, not everyone gets a good meal to start the day.
By keeping the right "grab and go" foods on hand, your kids can have a nutritious breakfast every day. Consider items such as yogurt, fruit cups, granola bars and graham crackers.
Single-serve packages work best, but they can drive up your grocery costs. Buy some of these quick serve items in larger packages and portion them out into reusable plastic containers and baggies.
And, with summer right around the corner, employing this alternative breakfast routine can help keep the whole family on track when the daily schedule becomes less consistent.
