Start your child's day off right - with a healthy breakfast. Although pouring your preschooler a bowl of sugary cereal may be easy, it is not very healthy. Popular kids cereals with a high-glycemic index cause a quick peak in blood sugar, which then drops dramatically, leaving your child hungry again and sluggish. Low-glycemic foods like oatmeal are absorbed more slowly so blood sugar levels stay even and energy lasts longer. Here are some balanced breakfast ideas, each with the right amount of protein and complex carbohydrates.
If you don't have time to cook a healthy breakfast, keep fresh fruit and low-fat cheese sticks available for your preschooler to eat on the go.
