For many families, mornings are hectic, there is breakfast to eat, teeth to be brushed, shoes to be tied before the mad dash to school.
So how do you fit in a healthy breakfast?
Dieticians say the key is planning and prep because you need to include something from 3 different food groups.
But making a change doesn't mean you have to cook when you wake up.
Prepare some foods the night before like oatmeal.
In the morning just reheat it and add some fruit such as blueberries.
You can also make whole wheat waffles, adding yogurt, fruit and nuts; or another option, an apple sandwich.
You spread peanut butter on apple slices, and put it in a whole grain pita.
"Take some deli ham, some mild mozzarella, place it in the tortilla and fold it like a crepe,” suggests Registered Dietitian Dana Nahai.
Making a healthy breakfast does take some preparation, but if you do your homework you can help your child get the best start to his day.
