01 Sep Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal of the Day?
While the answer to this question might make for popular debate, there is no doubt about it in the case of school going children. It is definitely to the advantage of your child to have a filling and nutritious meal before starting their classes every morning. It should provide them the required energy to pay attention in school, or to take part in sports or gym activities.
In the flurry of activities every morning with everyone rushing off to their workplace or school, it gets tough to plan a balanced and interesting meal every morning. Here are some easy ways that you can go about it:
Minimize cooking time: Plan your elaborate cooked breakfasts for the weekends! Where schooldays are concerned, it should be something that you can put together in 10-15 minutes at the most. A boiled egg for example is quick to make and provides some essential protein. Plan items like sandwiches or salads that you could put together easily using pre-cooked or raw ingredients.
Freeze, freeze, freeze: Choose items that freeze well, so that you could even prepare and freeze breakfasts for the week if needed. A lot of veggies like carrots, beans and peas take very well to freezing, and will provide the required nutrition punch to your child’s meal.
Use colors and fun shapes: If your kids complain that meals are getting boring or repetitive, make small changes by using new ingredients that provide color. You could also try cutting out patterns or funny faces to make even the most mundane sandwiches look more interesting.
Not really a breakfast tip, but a note like this one is sure to bring a smile to your child’s face and provide them incentive to finish meal, don’t you think ;)?
