When it comes to ensuring our children are healthy and feel energized throughout the day, breakfast is the most important meal. If your child is getting in lots of physical activity, like taking part in swimming lessons, then breakfast is even more important to help them fuel up. That’s why we’ve put together some handy tips to help you make your children a healthy, hassle-free breakfast in the morning!
Stock the Kitchen
Having healthy breakfast options on hand will make it easier to always be able to provide your child with a healthy choice. Rather than realizing in the morning that you are all out of healthy breakfast foods, make sure to stock up when going grocery shopping so you have enough for a week’s worth of meals.
Prepare the Night Before
To avoid the stress in the morning that can sometimes cause parents to stray from a healthy option, try to prepare as much of the breakfast as you can the night before. This will ensure that you aren’t too rushed to prepare the healthy meal and that your child will be getting a full, nutrient-filled breakfast.
Wake Up a Bit Earlier
Going along with preparing ahead of time, waking up a bit earlier in the morning will help provide you the stress-free time to prepare what you couldn’t the night before.
Give the Kids Say
Breakfast can sometimes be a difficult meal for children as mornings can be a hard time to get them to eat. To avoid this problem, try giving the kids a say in what they have for their meal. Keep the options healthy but present them with a choice on what they feel like. This will help them be more enthusiastic about eating breakfast and get the fuel they need in the morning.
