Connie’s Morning Breakfast Tips Breakfast should be something families look forward to, rather than a stressful and challenging experience for moms and children. Below are my suggestions on making this daily routine more enjoyable for you and your children.      Get up, and eat! Get the kids up earlier on weekdays to spend some mommy-and-me time and eat a proper breakfast with your kids. Be a role model. Moms who eat a balanced morning meal benefit, too, and also set a good example for their children. Variety is key. Children need a balance of nutrients and tasty goodness, and moms need a breakfast solution that is quick and convenient! Be sure to include sources of whole grains, protein, fat and nutrient-boosting fruits or vegetables as part of the breakfast plan. Provide small portions. If your child tells you he or she is not hungry in the morning, offer a smaller breakfast as a tasty treat and send a packed snack to help him or her make it through the morning. Make breakfast a family affair. Enlist your child in making breakfast happen. Decide on the breakfast menu and set the table the night before. Make breakfast fun by planning with your child and making it together. 1 Rampersaud GC, Pereira MA, Girard BL, Adams J, Metzl JD.
