Yes, breakfast matters!
Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? Yes!
Studies show that kids who eat breakfast perform much better in school and show extra energy in sports and other physical activities. Conversely, children who come to school hungry experience more learning difficulties compared to well-nourished children. Plus, eating a healthy breakfast on a daily basis has a measurable, positive affect on alertness, attention, performance on standardized achievement tests, and other skills important for academic success.
At Westchester Health, we’re parents too and we know how hard it to fix a healthy breakfast for your family, especially when everyone’s rushing out the door in the morning. To help you cook a nutritious meal that will fuel your kids’ bodies and minds and also be fun for them to eat, we’d like to share our top 10 healthy breakfast recipes, compiled by Lauren Adler, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician with our Westchester Health Pediatrics group. Enjoy!
