Start the school day with a healthy, delicious breakfast that will have kids out of bed and out the door in no time. These quick and easy tips will make mornings fun and stress-free for adults and children alike.
Gather the whole family in the kitchen on a lazy Sunday afternoon for hands-on baking. Let kids help make fresh fruit muffins or quick breads you can serve throughout the week. Freeze the extras for snacks on the go.
Picky eaters can customize their own rise n’ shine meals with a few versatile ingredients. Scramble eggs and lay out whole wheat tortillas, ham or turkey, cheese and your kids’ favorite vegetables so they can assemble their own nutritious breakfast wraps.
Whip up a few thick slices of French toast while the kids are getting ready. Cut the toast into cubes, and set them out with small skewers and fresh fruit. When they’re ready to eat, kids can load up the skewers however they like.
A no-cook breakfast gives busy parents time to enjoy their morning coffee. Try setting out a buffet of plain yogurt, fresh fruit, honey and granola so kids can build a flavorful yogurt sundae.
Make biscuits as a family on the weekend so you’ll have a whole week of delicious breakfast options ahead. Fill a sliced biscuit with fresh strawberries and whipped cream for a strawberry shortcake variation, or ham and cheese for a breakfast sandwich. Freeze unbaked biscuits on baking sheets so you can pop them in the oven as soon as you wake up.
