Back to School Breakfast
Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas
A balanced breakfast should have a good ratio between carbohydrates and protein.
Including protein at breakfast will help you feel fuller longer, leading to healthier eating habits throughout the day, which may also aid in weight loss. Carbohydrates are needed to help fuel the body and supply us with the energy needed for work and play. Try these easy breakfast ideas that combine a combination of nutrient rich foods:

After School Snacks
Children get about 25% of their daily calories from snacks, so plan to have a satisfying snack that is also nutritious. Include at least 2 main food groups in snacks – ideally a protein source like diary, meats or peanut butter and a carbohydrate for energy such as whole grains, fruit or vegetables.
Portion control is important when planning snacks to avoid over-indulging. Pre-portion snacks in individual containers and snack-size Zip-lock bags making snacks easy to grab and go!
