Why is a Healthy Kids Breakfast Important?
A healthy breakfast for kids is super important for a few key reasons that benefit children in many ways. Studies have shown that kids who eat a healthy balanced breakfast tend to eat healthier overall, maintain a healthy body weight, have greater concentration and memory, improve problem-solving skills, have more energy to play and get more exercise and movement in.
A healthy breakfast for kids also gives the little munckin’s bodies the fuel they need for the day; kickstarting their metabolism and preventing energy slumps. Making sure your child has a healthy breakfast also helps to prevent restlessness, irritability, and a short attention span.
“Building healthy habits into a child, like a healthy kids breakfast, can really set them up for success, not only for the school day ahead but for a future of healthy decision making.” - Lisa Baker, Nutra Organics Food Technologist
