Easy & Healthy Breakfasts on School Days
Balanced breakfasts help improve functionality, energy levels, and concentration. Since most breakfasts are loaded with sugar and lacking in protein, your child may see some drastic results with a better breakfast.
One breakfast recipe I love to make is banana pancakes that are made using one ripe banana and one egg. Two ingredients-that’s it! Mash the banana into the bowl then mix in the egg until combined. Heat the pan with a little no stick spray then cook the batter just like you would a regular pancake. I like to eat mine with a little bit of peanut butter spread on top!
Bonus Tip: Mind the juice! Aim for the whole fruit instead, which will prevent drastic spikes in blood sugar. Start by offering less juice and begin to dilute each cup with 1 tablespoon of water gradually each week.
