The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to make breakfast a priority:
- Leave enough time in the morning for your child to eat without feeling rushed.
- If necessary, prepare breakfast the night before by making hard-boiled eggs, pouring cereal or slicing fruit.
- Prepare healthy "grab and go" favorites such as bagels and cream cheese, homemade muffins, apple slices or hard-boiled eggs.
- Make sure your child goes to bed early enough to leave time in the morning for breakfast.
- Think of outside-the-cereal-box breakfast options that offer protein, fruits and vegetables.
- Learn the breakfast offerings at school or day care -- and make sure they're healthy.
