As parents, it’s natural to want the best for our children and encourage them to be healthy, happy, and successful. One of the best things we can do to help our children thrive is to instil healthy habits from an early age.
Two key areas where we can do this are nutrition and exercise. In this blog post, we’ll explore some kids’ healthy breakfast ideas and nutritious store-bought snacks for kids, as well as stretching and flexibility exercises and exercise games that can help keep your child active and engaged.
Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Kids
Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. A nutritious breakfast can help your child start the day off on the right foot and provide the energy they need for school and other activities.
Mornings can be hectic, but it can help to think ahead and be prepared. Here are some healthy breakfast ideas for kids that they will love.
Greek yogurt with berries and granola
Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in sugar, making it a great choice for breakfast. Top it with fresh berries and a sprinkle of granola for a delicious and nutritious meal.
A smoothie bowl
Blend together frozen fruit, yogurt, and milk to create a smoothie bowl. Top it with granola, chia seeds, and fresh fruit for added crunch and flavor.
Scrambled eggs with whole wheat toast
Eggs are a great source of protein, and whole wheat toast provides fiber and other important nutrients. Add some veggies like spinach or peppers to the eggs for added nutrition.
Combine rolled oats with milk, yogurt, and fruit in a jar and let it sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you’ll have a delicious and nutritious breakfast ready to go.
Peanut butter and banana on whole wheat toast
Spread peanut butter on whole wheat toast and top with sliced banana for a quick and easy breakfast that kids will love.
Hard-boiled eggs are a great source of protein and can be made ahead of time for a quick and easy breakfast option.
Healthy store-bought snacks for kids
Snacks are an important part of a child’s diet, but it can be tough to find healthy options at the grocery store. Here are some ideas for healthy store-bought snacks for kids:
- Veggie straws are a crunchy and satisfying snack that kids love. Look for brands that are made with whole grains and real vegetables
- Yogurt is a great source of protein and calcium. Look for brands that are low in sugar and artificial ingredients
- Granola bars can be a great on-the-go snack. Look for brands that are made with whole grains and natural ingredients
