Breakfast is not only the first meal but (as scientists have proven) also the most important one. You should not skip it, even if you decide to go on a diet. After all, the body must get a boost of energy for the whole day. In addition, in the morning, the best metabolism. And an eaten breakfast will be quickly digested. It will give you strength for new achievements and provide energy for the body to work and perform all necessary functions.
Therefore, parents should ensure that children eat a nutritious, wholesome, and healthy breakfast every morning. However, many children wake up with a poor appetite and refuse to drink more than just juice or a glass of milk. In order to make it easier for them to eat breakfast, it is important to use options that allow several ingredients to be blended, and together they become an easy meal to eat and digest. Milkshakes, fruit, and organic baby cereal are some of the best options. Then we’ll leave you with some recipes for quick and delicious breakfasts for the little ones in the house.
Quick and hearty breakfasts for children
Try alternate breakfasts, so kids don’t get bored with the same thing every day. Remember that children usually eat “by eye” first, so ensure the food looks good and that the plates don’t seem too full. Here are some ideas for quick breakfast recipes, so you can always vary the ingredients depending on your children’s tastes.
Healthy oat porridge with fresh fruit
To make oatmeal porridge, just heat a glass of milk; you can also add a cinnamon stick or vanilla essence. When it comes to a boil, add a tablespoon of oatmeal and cook over low heat for about 2 minutes. Serve with pieces of fresh fruit, strawberries, banana, and kiwi.
Banana oatmeal cake
You can make this cake in the microwave in just a few minutes. Mix a small ripe banana with an egg, two large tablespoons of oatmeal, three tablespoons of milk, a pinch of baking powder, ground cinnamon, and a few pieces of chocolate. Whisk and place in a good-sized cup. We put it in the microwave and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes.
Yogurt and fruit smoothies
A fresh smoothie is full of color and flavor for a nutritious breakfast. Put Greek yogurt, a glass of milk, two tablespoons of oatmeal, and fresh fruit to taste in a glass blender. Banana is one of the best options because it adds sweetness without sugar. But you can also add strawberries, red berries, mangoes, kiwi, or whatever the kids like best. Chop it well and serve it fresh, so it goes in much better.
In addition to using fresh foods rich in color and flavor, it is important to use containers that appeal to children. If you use a cup of your favorite color, a bottle with a decorated straw for milkshakes, juices, and smoothies, or a bowl with the kids’ favorite character, breakfast will be even more delicious.
