Bite Into A Healthy Day With A Great Breakfast!
We all want our kids to do well in school and give them everything that they need to be successful. A good breakfast is one of those things.
In our busy world it can be too easy to let it slide when our student says they are too tired to eat, or that they just don’t feel like it, but we cannot give in to the bad habit of missing breakfast. Children who eat a healthy breakfast are more attentive in school. They get better grades and they socialize better with others. The brain needs food in order to learn. The better the food, the better the learning. So sugary donuts are not the best option. Whole grains, fruit, nuts and protein are better choices.
The best time to prepare a good breakfast is not three minutes before it is time to leave the house. The best time is to think about it and get prepared the night before. Put out what needs to be put out. Can the box of cereal go onto the counter where the kids will see it? Prepare muffin batter the night before and pop them in the oven while you are getting ready for work, or put the fruit in a bowl on the table. Everyone could take a turn making breakfast, or sometimes the best preparation is just thinking it through so there is a plan in the morning.
The Calgary Tutor Doctor Recommends Breakfast
When working with children of all ages providing tutoring and learning support, the Calgary Tutor Doctor has found that those children who consistently have a good breakfast respond to tutoring quicker. Many schools boards would agree, and that is why several schools now offer some kind of breakfast program to be sure that kids are not trying to learn on an empty stomach.
