The Most Important Meal of the Day

A good morning meal sets the tone for your young athlete's day

There’s a reason experts say getting a good breakfast is important to good health. What you choose to eat after a long night’s sleep sets the tone for your whole day.

If you’re not convinced, consider two recent studies. An article in the March 2008 issue of Pediatrics cited a study that found that the more often adolescents eat breakfast, the less likely they are to be overweight. That’s not all. A Baylor College of Medicine study of more than 700 Louisiana ninth-graders found that skipping breakfast may lead to iron-deficiency.

One of the big reasons kids give for not eating a good breakfast is too little time in the morning. Here are some suggestions that require little morning preparation. Some can even be carried out the door!

 

  • Hardboiled eggs (keep a supply of them in the fridge)
  • Fresh fruit
  • Yogurt
  • Whole grain toast, bagels or muffins (combine with cheese or peanut butter for protein)
  • Low sugar, whole grain cereals
  • Crock-pot oatmeal (Put six cups of water and two cups of old-fashioned oats into the crock pot on low before bed. In the morning, it’s ready to eat. Just add fruit, nuts or spices as desired.)
