Many factors go into academic success. One that is often overlooked is eating. A National Institute of Health study found that breakfast can “positively affect learning in children in terms of behavior, cognitive, and school performance”!
So many kids barely eat breakfast and then wonder why they fell asleep during their 8 am class, or made so many silly mistakes on their test. So here’s to healthy blood sugar levels and staying sharp: three healthy breakfast ideas for a focused day! These are so easy to put together that your child could probably make them by themselves!
Overnight oats. Combine one parts oats, one parts milk of any kind into a jar. Then add whatever toppings you would like! Try chocolate chips, berries, nuts, peanut butter, or fresh fruit. Let sit in the fridge overnight.
Avocado toast. Toast two slices of bread. Cut one avocado. Slice or mash half onto each piece of toast. Top with a fried egg and spices. My personal favorite is bagel seasoning!
Veggie quesadilla. Drizzle some oil in a pan on medium heat. Add a few handfuls of any veggies you like: bell peppers, spinach, onion, mushrooms, you name it. Remove veggies from pan. Put a tortilla on the pan, then add cheese and veggies on one half. Fold and press.
We hope these three breakfast ideas help you start your day on the right foot!
