Going back to school demands a healthy breakfast
(NC)-Over a long summer break filled with sugary snacks, soda pop and summer treats, children's healthy eating habits can fall to the way side. With the start of the new school year, it's important for children to get the energy they need to be bright and focused in the classroom. Here are some fail proof ways to get them off to the right start:
Wake children up a little early: Most children would rather sleep in than eat breakfast in the morning; rushing out of the house with just their knapsack in hand. To avoid this, have them set their alarm clock at least 15 minutes early to give them enough time to eat something nutritious in the morning before school.
Teach young children the importance of a healthy breakfast: When children don't understand the benefits of a good nutrition, it can be a battle to get them to eat breakfast. Explain it in a way they can understand - have children imagine they are a car. After a long night of sleeping, their fuel tank is empty. Breakfast is the gas that gets them going so they can hit the road.
Give them a way share a meal with other children: Children love eating with other kids and trading treats. Websites like www.ccfcanada.ca offer wonderful opportunities to provide children living in poverty with breakfast food, helping them get a good start to their day too. Your child will be happy to know that while they're sitting down to a healthy breakfast here at home, another child half-way around the world is eating breakfast right along with them.
