Breakfast is a very important meal for everyone, especially children. Getting the right nutrition from the beginning of the day gives kids the step in the right direction they need for heightened attention at school, leading them toward success in school along with many other benefits breakfast provides.
In honor of National Nutrition Month, try out these nutritional classic breakfast recipes with a twist to get some different breakfasts on your family’s plate.
You can share the opportunity for a healthy breakfast with children who may not get breakfast at home and invest in their success by giving to Valley of the Sun United Way’s Breakfast in the Classroom program. In Arizona, 28% of children live in food insecure homes.2 With your help, Breakfast in the Classroom could provide meals to all students in classrooms across the Valley.
