Back to School Breakfast Ideas

We have all heard it before that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but how many of us actually take that seriously? I know I have definitely been guilty of this and if we are honest i think all of us have been at one point or another! haha However, I have learned over the past few years that it REALLY IS important! The days I have a good healthy breakfast I feel great all day and my body feels fueled and ready to go. On busy days when I had sugary cereal or even skipped breakfast my body was fighting me ALL day!

After realizing this about my own body I thought, “if my breakfast choices affects me like this how much more is it affecting my kids that are in school all day!” Having three growing and developing kiddo in school I knew I really needed to make some changes. By having healthy back to school breakfast ideas I knew I would be setting them up for success as they go to school each day.
