Shake Up Your Wake Up Mom Ideas to Start the Day With A Fun & Healthy Breakfast for Kids

Good Food

Get ready. In this sponsored post I'm going to be inspiring you about about getting your family to eat a healthy breakfast. Moms have been saying it for generations -- I know my mom sure told me all these things while I was growing up in the 1960s before McDonalds ever invented the Egg McMuffin. 
  • Never skip the first meal of the day
  • Always eat a good breakfast
  • You really need to have some protein first thing in the morning if you're going to do well in school
  • My mom said _______________ (fill in the blank)
You get the idea. I'm betting your own mom told you one or more of all these things, too, when you were little. I'd also be willing to wager that you've tried -- not always successfully -- to imbue all that motherly good eating habit wisdom into your own growing children.

Sad but true, breakfast and starting the day on a healthy note is in danger of extinction. According to Statistic Brain and the U.S. Food and Agricultural Organization (FDA), only 44% of people eat breakfast every morning and that 22% of the breakfast skippers are obese and horror of horror 73% of today's kids who do eat breakfast are ingesting sugar sweetened cereal one or more days per week. There is definitely something wrong here because a full 21% of the sales at fast food chains come from breakfast items.

The good news is that we can put breakfast back on the menu at home for our kids right now. All it takes is a little more enthusiasm and creativity by us parents, both moms and dads, and other caregivers of our children. The key is making breakfast not a chore or a boring every day activity but making the breakfast table and the food we put on it fun, appetizing looking and tasty so kids will make it a priority and come running to do what's good for us all: get the proper nutrition at the start of every day.

Skip the fast food drive through during morning carpool. Instead why not consider getting your kids to try something really delicious before they leave the house on those crazy, hectic mornings: new Silk Fruit & Protein. It comes in three delicious flavors: Mixed Berry, Mango Peach, and Strawberry Banana -- they all sound so good I don't know which one to try first. 

Not only is the brand nutritious and an excellent source of protein, it is easy to serve: all you have to do is pour it into a glass and watch your child enjoy it. It's not just good for kids, either. You should give it a try, too. You can drink this straight up out of the carton (glass optional), blended into a smoothie you whip up in your blender or added to a variety of recipes you make for your family.
