A Lickety Split Breakfast!

A Lickety Split Breakfast!

Eating breakfast can help your kids perform better at school. It can also help to promote a healthy weight and good behavior. But don't worry: preparing a smart breakfast doesn't need to be time consuming. You or your children can put cereal and milk on the table lickety split. Pick a nutritious cereal that is a good source of fiber. Look for at least three grams of fiber on the package's Nutrition Facts Label. Round out the meal, and add interest, nutrition and staying power with some of these toppings.

  • Bananas, peaches, nectarines, kiwi or mango
  • Apples and cinnamon
  • Chopped nuts
  • Raisins, dried apricots, cranberries or cherries
