As we settle into the school year, I have been so proud of both of my girls and their eagerness to spring out of bed in the morning and prepare for another day at school. My husband and I feel so fortunate that our girls have a love for school and a love for the morning hours that we have never known. Of course, everyone’s first and foremost thought is breakfast and it’s one meal we feel is of great importance. Did you know that children who eat breakfast daily score higher on math tests and other academic areas, and help to maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of obesity?
The majority of mornings our girls reach for wheat toast or whole grain blueberry waffles, or in our house they are deemed “buttery waffles” – spread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. We have made a steadfast effort to have plenty of food choices in our home at all times, but ones that promote a healthy diet and promote those little brains to kick off their day in the best way possible. We use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter because it tastes great, and it also contains 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter. Additionally, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter contains no hydrogenated oils, is cholesterol free and is an excellent source omega-3.
It’s easy to skip breakfast in the morning with everyone’s tight time constraints. In fact, one of the main reasons families skip breakfast is because there simply isn’t enough time in the morning. A piece of toast, a glass of orange juice, a boiled egg (prepared the night before), or a quick bowl of cereal takes just a matter of minutes, and the benefits are all too apparent to ignore one of the healthiest meals of the day. Appropriate planning, and a few “on-the-go” ideas beforehand (try I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray) can ensure that breakfast goes off without a hitch and parents can rest assured that they are helping their child lead a healthier lifestyle.
