Mornings can sometimes be hectic for kids. Now that moms are frenzied by the holidays, sometimes, sitting down with their kids during breakfast just becomes an option. Nutrition is also de-prioritized.
To ensure that your busy kids are nourished in the morning, practice these tips:
Tip #1: Prepare in advance.
Prepare breakfast the night before and store it in the refrigerator. Pancakes, for example, can be frozen then toasted the next morning. Granola, fruit and yogurt can be stored in inpidual cups and refrigerated so kids can easily grab to-go servings the next day.
Tip #2: Keep it simple.
If you are a working mom rushing to go to the office in the morning, serve breakfasts that take less than 15 minutes to prepare. Hard boiled eggs, toasted bread with cinnamon powder and sugar, or slice cheese and apples, for example. Pre-planning may be needed, but it helps to make preparations faster.
Tip #3: Use leftovers.
Using pre-cooked ingredients helps you save a lot of time. Reheat last night's soup and serve it with strips of toasted bread. Ground beef or filleted fish makes great omelet filling. You can also use leftover chicken that has been shredded to quickly assemble sandwiches.
Tip #4: Have everything within reach.
Place all breakfast ingredients together in the cupboard or fridge. That way, you immediately get ideas of what to put together in just one look.
