5 Simple and Filling Back-to-School Breakfasts
For most families, mornings can be a little chaotic. There are socks and shoes to be found, jackets to be zipped, bookbags to be located, and lunches to be packed. And, amid the chaos, everyone has to get fed. If you’re on the hunt for filling, healthy breakfast options that won’t slow down your already chaotic mornings, look no further. Check out this list for back-to-school breakfasts that will allow everyone to leave on time with a full belly and a happy heart.
Peanut butter toast
If you’re crunched for time but know your little one needs all the healthy protein they can get in the morning, consider offering them peanut butter toast as a healthy filling breakfast option. If your babe likes fruit, consider adding sliced bananas to the top of their toast. You can also change it up with different butters – almond, cashew, and even sunflower butter are tasty alternatives.
Granola bowls are as simple and delicious as they are filling. To prepare a top-notch granola bowl, choose granola packed with protein, pour it into a bowl, and top it with fresh berries. If you’re running behind and need to eat on the go you can easily turn your granola bowls into granola grab-and-go bags by pouring your granola and berries into reusable sandwich baggies.
Homemade power bars
While you won’t want to make these power bars in the morning while you’re trying to get out of the house, you can make a big batch of them over the weekend and eat them for breakfast all week long.
Fruit and nuts
If you have older kids and aren’t as worried about them choking, nuts are a simple, easy complement to any breakfast that are as filling as they are easy to pour from the can. Pair them with fruit and a glass of milk and you’ll have a hearty, well-balanced breakfast that will leave your kids full until lunchtime.
While making smoothies requires a little bit of prep time, your prep time will be well used since your effort will lead to everyone’s breakfast all in one blender. Check-in with your kiddos about their favorite fruits and then blend them up for a morning treat everyone will love.
