It's Back To School Time! With that, starts of the dreaded rush of breakfast time. The benefits of eating breakfast are proven, yet most children and teens prefer to sleep those extra few minutes, or linger in front of the mirror, than sit down to a wholesome hearty breakfast that will carry them through until lunch. The reality of working parents adds an extra burden when having to manage multiple schedules, ages and food preferences. To end the last minute rush and sometimes arguments, plan quick and easy nutrient dense breakfasts from the book Flavorful Fortified Food – Recipes to Enrich Life. Make ahead of time Dairy Free Super Cereal or the Breakfast Bread Pudding that taste like dessert treats and are packed with nutrition. For the athletes in your home, the Enriched Cereal packs 700 calories and 28 grams of protein in a 1 cup serving. If you’re feeding younger children, serve half portions. For those that eat on the run, try any of the smoothies. Packed with protein and good for the whole family, the Peanut Butter and Banana Milkshake and Banana Nut Milkshake are always a winner. If your family is multi-generational, try our nutritious high fiber favorite Breakfast Shake. Top any shakes with a creamy whipped yogurt for additional protein and calcium, and a real early morning soda fountain treat kids and adults will never leave home without. If you use these recipes make sure your family keeps the secret, or you’ll have the neighborhood dropping in for breakfast every day.
