(HealthDay News) -- Skipping breakfast should not be an option for kids, no matter how tired they are, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.
Regular meals help growing bodies and developing brains. The ideal breakfast should be a healthy balance of fruits and vegetables, proteins, grains and dairy.
The FDA suggests how to make the most of your breakfast:
- Don't limit yourself to traditional breakfast foods.
- Offer foods your kids like. Muffins can be baked with vegetables hidden inside, or you can mix a less healthy sugary cereal with a more nutritious cereal.
- Offer cut up veggies throughout the day to make up for breakfasts that lacked essential vegetables.
- Since kids are growing, pay attention to including enough proteins, carbohydrates and fats in the morning meal to keep children full and focused in school.
- If your child is always running late, have healthy breakfast options available to grab as the child races out the door. Great examples include an egg, nuts or yogurt.
- Prepare for breakfast the night before by cutting fresh vegetables or fresh fruit in advance.
