The necessity of a healthy breakfast is indisputable. But reality? If your family is anything like mine, we run late, miss buses, can’t find clean socks, forget to brush our teeth, and sometime do homework last minute in the morning. A healthy breakfast? Sometimes that just doesn’t happen…..
Being a nutrition advocate, and borderline hippy-mom, I refuse to pop that waffle for a quick and easy fix. My main concern is stocking the house with food items that can get the kids going off to a good start in the morning, fueling their bodies with what they need to get a good start to the day. As research shows, kids focus, learn better and retain information when they begin each day with a healthy breakfast. Their brain literally works better. According to a study done by Tufts University breakfast supports children in body and mind. Recent research reveals that children who eat breakfast are healthier and perform better in school than children who don’t.
Studies have linked children eating breakfast to:
- improved nutrition
- healthier weight
- better cognitive functioning and memory
- increased academic achievement and test grades
- improved scores on math, reading, and science tests.
- better intake of vitamins and minerals.
- protection from the risk of obesity-related diseases like diabetes.
