And help your toddler get a healthy start
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- It's easy to rush out the door and skip breakfast, but many experts think breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to make breakfast a priority:
- Leave enough time in the morning for your child to eat without feeling rushed.
- If necessary, prepare breakfast the night before by making hard-boiled eggs, pouring cereal or slicing fruit.
- Prepare healthy "grab and go" favorites such as bagels and cream cheese, homemade muffins, apple slices or hard-boiled eggs.
- Make sure your child goes to bed early enough to leave time in the morning for breakfast.
- Think of outside-the-cereal-box breakfast options that offer protein, fruits and vegetables.
- Learn the breakfast offerings at school or day care -- and make sure they're healthy.
