Published —

Many people have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you ever think about how important it really is? Probably not, and that is because most mornings for busy families can be hectic! Parents need to get ready for work, while also getting their children prepared for school. Usually parents pick a quick and easy breakfast for their children to eat because it’s more convenient. Other times, breakfast might be skipped altogether! However, skipping breakfast or eating something sugary, such as cereal, can really affect your child’s attention, academic performance, and behavior.

Kids who go to school on a low-fat diet don’t have what it takes for their brains to thrive! The brain is about 60% fat! To give our brains what it needs to stay healthy, it is vital to eat foods that are high in healthy fat and Omega-3s.
