There are so many holidays in the month of September. I do think it’s a good idea that they whomever makes these days made better breakfast to be in September. It’s a good idea because it correlates to kids going back to school!
We no that in the United States unfortunately some kids struggle with meals. This really ought not be but it is a reality for some. Breakfast is super important. As an adult it’s hard for me to concentrate when I’m hangry. (Angry + hungry) how much more for our children? I know some folks really can’t eat breakfast. I am not one of those people. I would encourage the non breakfast eaters to at least eat fruit.
Eating better starts with choices. Having a variety of choices comes down to being prepared. Instead of sugary foods invest in whole grain options. I would suggest prepping it ahead of time. Time is the biggest issue with breakfast. Not having enough because the stress in the morning and trying to be on time sometimes clashes. I get that!It’s easier to grab on the go. The same breakfast sandwiches you can purchase at a fast food place can be made at home. Invest in fruit. Invest in cereals with less sugar and be creative. You can have fresh fruit in your oatmeal or cereal as an alternative.Make the time to prepare things at night meaning packing bags can help cut down on time. If you have lunch and breakfast prepared you can be more in charge with what you place in your body. Often times we shove food into our body and grab food from vending machines because of not being prepared. If you have a family if you mirror the change you want to see it makes it easier for others around you to align. Not all food that is grab worthy is bad. You can grab yogurt and eat that with some granola and fruit and have that be better than a sugary donut a diet soda.
Even if you say come on “I can’t do that,” commit to a few days a week of making healthier choices. Once you see how much better you feel it may be an easier to make that change stick! The benefits of eating a better breakfast:
- Better Concentration
- Aids in weight los
- Helps in portion control for the day
- Better productive day
