Healthy Back to School Breakfast Ideas

Mary Oleksowicz, MSTOM , L. Ac .
I hope you found my last blog with quick and easy lunch ideas helpful. This time we will investigate easy breakfast options.

The key to a seamless breakfast are options especially for the children.

Breakfast tortillas made with whole wheat tortillas allow for many grab and go breakfast options. Trying stuffing a tortilla with string cheese and apple slice.  30 seconds in the microwave and this tasty breakfast is ready to go. You can also try using your favorite nut butter and honey (for children over 2 years old) .

Breakfast “hot dogs”   are another fun option . Take a whole wheat hot dog bun and spread peanut butter on it.  Please one whole peeled banana and you are ready to go! Additions can include strawberries or blueberries.

Greek yogurt “seasoned” with your favorite fruit allows for higher protein and lower sugar content then   yogurt with fruit on the bottom.
Smoothies are a great way to provide quick nutrition for multiple family members. Spinach blended with berries, chia seeds and coconut or soy milk  provides not only a large range of vitamins but fiber as well. I prefer smoothies to juicing as there tends to be less mess and more fiber in the resulting product .

Next time , we will review quick and healthy dinner ideas.
