The WHOLE world knows that a balanced breakfast is essential to kids excelling in school and life… that includes PROTEIN. Then why does the revised school breakfast program include zero protein?

What the Hell Michelle?

“Breakfast helps jump-start your metabolism in the morning and helps to get the nutrients you need. Children who eat breakfast through the child nutrition or school lunch program at school get one-fourth of the nutrients needed daily,” said Armentor.

“If time is a big factor, there are lots of healthy options that either don’t take too much time to prepare or are portable. A good breakfast will have a good source of protein, a complex carbohydrate and a good amount of Vitamin C.”

For a fast breakfast that is easy to prepare or something to bring along as a portable breakfast, Armentor recommends eggs, toast plain or with peanut butter, cheese or cream cheese, bagels or English muffins, granola bars or fruit filled breakfast bars. Fruit smoothies, yogurt with fruit, grits, oatmeal or cream of wheat, cold cereal and milk, a tortilla with eggs, cheese and salsa. A sandwich made with meat and cheese or peanut butter can be a nutritious start to the day.
