Make grab-and-go breakfasts
Getting kids to eat breakfast before school can sometimes be a challenge. There are days when everyone is running late or maybe they simply don’t have an appetite when they first wake up. Grab-n-go breakfasts are a good way to get them to eat something while they’re in the car or waiting for the bus, so they don’t have to go to school on an empty stomach. You can make breakfast burritos, pancakes (spread peanut butter on them and roll them up) or egg and English muffins breakfast sandwiches ahead of time. Or have foods such as fruit, yogurt and granola handy.
One reader, Palooka from Pennsylvania, shares: “Melt 1 cup of peanut butter in a pan, then pour in a little maple syrup (about 1⁄2 cup or to your taste) and 2 cups of cereal, such as Cheerios or Rice Krispies, and mix. You can add chocolate chips or raisins, too. Roll the mixture into balls or put it in a pan in the fridge until firm and cut as needed.”
