While I find many parents focus on what’s for dinner, starting your kids off right with a healthy and yummy breakfast is a great way to start their day. While mornings can feel hectic, having something ready to grab and go can make breakfast faster.
Many of these recipes are perfect for making on the weekend and reheating all week. Stock your freezer, heat up in the microwave and you’re out the door with a piece of fruit on the side.
What is a healthy breakfast for school?
A healthy breakfast before school should include a mix of protein, fat, fiber and if possible a fruit or vegetable. Many of these breakfast ideas can be made before school or can be made on the weekend and frozen ahead to reheat throughout the week.
Pair some fruit with these recipes for a complete meal for most fo these ideas. In our family we like half a banana or a handful of berries when we are feeling sleepy.
Sugar is always on my radar personally for kids as too much can spike their blood sugar and leave them hungry before lunch. I try to keep added sugar content low for breakfast.
We totally have yummy treats for dessert in our family too, but breakfast is one place I feel like I can easily encourage less sugar without much extra effort.
What Is The Fastest Healthy School Breakfast
When I haven’t cooked ahead and my freezer is empty? Our go-to quick and healthy breakfast is:
- a slice of whole grain toast or a whole grain english muffin with a little real butter
- a kid-sized handful of nuts
- a kid-sized handful of berries or half a banana
