As a parent, I find one of the hardest things for me to do in the morning is get everyone out the door with a belly full of healthy food. More often then not, parents confide to me that they don't even try anymore because their kids aren't big "breakfast people". I understand and sympathize because Kenya could easily do without breakfast most mornings and be fine....until 10 am, when the "crash" comes and he's not only grumpy, but low on energy. I've really made it a point to try and get Kenya excited about his first meal of the day and have him hopefully understand how important eating in the morning is -- not only for his body, but also his mood.
Coming up with tempting recipes that will make my kids' (and husband's) eyes light up early in the morning is a great way to make sure they'll eat and get plenty of nutrition in every bite. These easy to prepare Oaty Muffins are made with whole wheat flour, oats, and eggs for some much needed protein. The honey provides a sweet taste that will hopefully add to that morning boost and help you avoid a 10am crash. Good for bellies and for moods!
