breakfast recipes

While parents need to eat breakfast to perform at their daily best, kids need to eat breakfast even more.   Kids bodies are always growing and their bodies rely on regular healthy food intake.  When kids skip breakfast, they can end up going for long periods of time without food and this period of semistarvation can create a lot of physical, intellectual, and behavioral problems for them.

If you and your kids regularly skip breakfast in the interest of saving time, calories, or getting a few more minutes of sleep, remember that eating a wholesome, nutritious morning meal will probably save you time in the long run.  This is an interesting fact: studies show that kids who skip breakfast are tardy and absent from school more often than children who eat breakfast on a regular basis. Preparing a good breakfast can be as quick and easy.  Make sure to check back with our blog tomorrow.  My Baby Pajamas Tuesday Cook Off will feature two quick and easy breakfast for adults and kids.   Both recipes are a big hit in our house and the great thing is they can be prepared on the weekend and stored in the refrigerator for the week.

Adults tend to skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight but doing this can actually do the opposite and make you gain weight not loss weight.  According to research, skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger. Several studies suggest that people tend to accumulate more body fat when they eat fewer, larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller, more frequent meals. To teens, especially teenage girls, skipping breakfast may seem like a perfectly logical way to cut down on calories and lose weight. It’s important for moms to educate their kids about the importance of the morning meal and the role it plays in maintaining good health and preventing obesity.

Mom and Dad, your kids look up to you and if you don’t eat breakfast, why should they?   By eating breakfast everyday, you are showing your kids how important it is to eat breakfast plus you are establishing a good healthy habit that will continue a life time.
