Breakfast is a key ingredient for growing healthy minds and bodies, so as we all get back to school, consider adding these recipes to your morning routines.
We’re big fans of breakfast around here, and while “the most important meal of the day” might not be top-of-mind on busy back-to-school mornings, we have a few recipes that just might keep you and your family motivated to get a healthy start.
Kids who eat breakfast have shown better performance in school, longer attention spans and better attendance. Eating breakfast can also help your child start the day off with a healthy dose of nutrients and give them the energy they need to power through the morning.
But when we say breakfast we’re not talking about sugary cereals and some orange juice. Let’s talk vitamin, mineral and fiber packed meals that get us all out the door on time and ready to take on the day. Here are five nutritious breakfast recipes your kids will love!
- Orgain Snickerdoodle Overnight “Proats”
This protein-rich recipe is a go-to for both kids and parents. “Proats” are famous for keeping hunger in check and what kid says “no thank you” to the word “Snickerdoodle”? Loaded with whole grains, fiber, and heart-healthy fats, it’s a breakfast you’ll all be excited to wake up to. And that’s the best part: make it the night before and save yourself time in the morning.
- Orgain Breakfast Protein Pops
Popsicles for breakfast? Best mom EVER. This fun and nutritious breakfast will supply a big boost of the protein and nutrients your kids need. It’s also easy to take on the go for those mornings you need to rush out the door. Maybe bring a napkin. 😉
- Sweet Raspberry Paleo Muffins
Honestly, you can’t beat a good muffin. Something about peeling back that paper and biting into a soft, cakey muffin is so satisfying. These paleo muffins aren’t too sweet and are filled with antioxidant-rich raspberries that add just the right amount of tart. Enjoy another great on-the-go option!
- Fruit & Veggie Sheet Pan Pancakes
Pancakes are a breakfast classic, but this recipe really takes them to a whole new level. First, you will save some serious time with these fiber-filled flapjacks — no more standing over a griddle when everything goes right in the oven. Second, they’re made with whole wheat flour for extra fiber and protein. And third, they’re loaded with fruits AND veggies. Yes, vegetables. What could be a better way to start the day?
- Orgain Homemade No-Bake Protein Bars
When life gets busy (like when school starts, anyone?) no-bake recipes sound pretty darn great. These chewy, whole grain bars are the perfect recipe for Sunday meal-prep and provide an easy-to-grab breakfast during the week. Your kids will love the classic chocolate-peanut butter flavor combo and you’ll love all the goodness that goes into them.
