BREAKFAST: The Most Important Meal of the Day for Kids

Oct 3, 2023
With summer vacations over and kids back to school, let's discuss the importance of healthy eating, especially at breakfast time.

Glucose is the body's main source of energy. When we sleep, our bodies use up the glucose that we have stored from the previous day.
Eating breakfast in the morning helps to replace this glucose and gives us the energy we need to start our day off right.
Kids who skip breakfast are more likely to be irritable, moody, and have difficulty concentrating.

A healthy breakfast is essential for kids' learning, especially during school hours. It provides them with the nutrients, energy, and focus they need to succeed in the classroom.
Studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast perform better on cognitive tasks, such as memory, attention, and problem-solving.
If kids rely mostly on processed or junk food and skip breakfast, they will likely have difficulty concentrating, they might feel tired and sluggish, be malnourished, and experience mood swings and emotional problems.

I understand that mornings can be chaotic, especially in large families, but with a little planning, it's possible to have a healthy breakfast before leaving the house.

The keys to a successful morning breakfast include:

  • Planning ahead and discuss options with your kids.
  • Shopping for ingredients and gathering all the ingredients, pots, plates, and utensils you need the night before

I know that a bowl of cereal with milk is a quick and easy breakfast option, but unfortunately, many store-bought cereals are ultra-processed and high in sugar. If you're short on time or not in the mood to cook, try choosing a healthier cereal option with less processing and sugar.

A healthy breakfast should include a variety of nutrient-rich foods, ideally with a protein base, such as eggs. Protein helps build muscles and keeps kids feeling full and satisfied, which can help them avoid reaching for empty calories throughout the morning.
If your kids aren't egg fans, choose whole-grain cereals instead. Whole grains are healthier than refined grains because they're packed with fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Pancakes are a good breakfast option because they can be made ahead of time (even frozen) and reheated in the morning, and they can contain both eggs and whole wheat flour.

Help your kids grow in a healthy way!
