Easy Breakfast To Go Ideas
14 Healthy and easy breakfast to go ideas and inspirations to make breakfast easy and stress-free for your family.
Now that the kids are back in school, the morning rush is real! Whether you are out of the house at 7 or 8 am, it’s early, you may be crunched for time. With the reality of packing lunches, backpacks, brushing, and styling hair, breakfast can often be a challenge to prepare and consume in the early morning house.
A little prep goes a long way when it comes to a nutritious breakfast that will keep you and your kids full and nourished. While cereal is often considered a staple breakfast, it’s hardly a nutritious one – rather it’s mostly carbs and sugar. While you get protein from the milk, kids can often be hungry within a short time frame and frankly, cereal is not the best brain food.
You want to plan balanced meals that have protein, whole grains, and a little fat to keep kids satiated and fuel their brains and bodies.
