How To Make Your Breakfast – Post this one on the fridge too!
Since I am trying to get my kids to make their own lunches, I thought why not try breakfast too! Here is another handy chart you can post on the fridge to help your kids make their own breakfast. Have them use this as a guideline and challenge them to try new foods so that they don’t get bored of eating the same thing for breakfast everyday.
How To Make Your Breakfast
When your kids start their day off with a healthy breakfast they get the energy they need to focus in school and participate in physical activity! According to KidsHealth.org, skipping breakfast can make kids feel tired, fidgety, or irritable. Kids need to refuel their bodies after not eating anything for 8 to 12 hours while they were sleeping.
Try to have your kids (and yourself) consume a balanced breakfast that includes some carbohydrates, protein and fiber. Carbs are the main source of immediate energy for the body. While protein tends to kick in after the carbs are used up. Fiber helps provide a feeling of fullness, and combined with plenty of water, helps move food through your digestive system, preventing constipation.
