Not just at back-to-school time, but all year round breakfast is the most important meal of the day for kid’s growing bodies and developing brains. Eating a healthy meal in the morning is also important for moms and dads, as it wakes up your metabolism helping to maintain a healthy weight. Eating breakfast together is part of my family’s morning ritual and our new Nutrition Tradition as part of the Scholastic and Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini Wheats® “Every Day is a Big Day” program where families are invited to complete monthly missions for an opportunity to earn free Scholastic books and be entered into a sweepstakes. I’ve partnered with Scholastic and Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini Wheats® to bring you this sponsored content.
Not only does my family enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal together in the mornings, but having breakfast together as a family gives a chance to chat about our goals for the day. Since the new school year began for us last week, we’ve had a whole lot to talk about recently. I know I say this every school year, but this year seems more hectic than ever. Our Nutrition Tradition of eating breakfast together as a family is one of the few quality moments we all have together during the busy day. I don’t usually cook a hot breakfast on school days, since we have to get up so early as it is. Our breakfast typically consists of a bowl of cereal and a glass of orange juice which seems to make everyone pretty happy. Keeping it simple also allows me the time to sit down and enjoy breakfast with everyone. Plus, I can feel good about feeding my family cereals like Frosted Mini Wheats® since the Kellogg’s® cereal provides an excellent source of fiber and is made from 100% whole grain.
