Don't forget as the season changes, so does your children's schedules and energy needs.  Let's focus on breakfast this week.  Remember, you are filling your child's tank for the day, so let's be sure not to skimp here!  Below are a few of my favorite quick, healthy and simple recipes for breakfast.  Give these a try this week and let me know what you think!

1.) Whole wheat frozen waffle peanut butter sandwich - Toast two whole wheat waffles and add a layer of peanut butter (or almond butter) to the top surface of each piece.  Then, assemble like a sandwich.  You can substitute nut butters with regular butter and jam or apple butter.  When making this recipe for Emma and Reed, I personally like to use Kashi's GOLEAN Waffles (they contain 8 g of protein and 6g of fiber!) combined with Justin's Organic Peanut Butter.


2.) Yogurt bowl - Combine low-fat and/or organic yogurt with whole grain cereal and then simply add some honey to sweeten.  My personal favorite combination for this one is Stonyfield's Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt combined with Barbara's Puffin cereal (Puffin brand comes in tons of yummy kid friendly flavors!).

3.) Egg roll-ups - In a small to medium-size whole wheat grain or plain tortilla, roll-up two scrambled eggs along with a slice of your child's favorite cheese or soy cheese and Voila! you have a filling breakfast that's packed with lots of protein and energy all bundled together. With this one, I like to use Horizon Organic American Cheese singles and Joseph's Whole Wheat Tortillas
