School is back in session, and we know that can mean (organized) chaos! It may be difficult to get your child fed and out the door in time, but it is crucial for development, both mentally and physically, that children receive proper nutrition throughout the school day. Breakfast keeps your child energized, full and ready to absorb knowledge.

Mornings can be a time crunch, but that is no excuse to let your child miss breakfast!

Here are a few great ‘grab and go’ options for busy mornings:

  • High protein granola bar + fruit
  • Pre-made: Breakfast sandwich made with English muffin + egg + slice of cheese (make a few and freeze for later)
  • Peanut butter and banana roll up (spread peanut butter on tortilla and place banana in middle and roll up)

If you have a little more time in the mornings, whole wheat waffles, pancakes and frittatas are great options for a healthy breakfast.

If you want to make sure your child is getting the required nutrients or need help with how to property fuel him or her, a physician can be of assistance. Visit AFC Urgent Care Shelton today – no appointment necessary!
