Change Up Your Breakfast

Often the morning is a rushed time to get the family fed and kids off to school.  Everyone needs a nutritious meal to start their day and have a productive morning.  Healthy habits can help children concentrate, feel better about themselves, and lower their future risk of diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer.

Try some of these recipes to start your day.  Make ahead of time and eat through the week or whip up quickly:
