We all know kids should start the day with a proper meal, but we also know that it is sometimes hard to get them—and ourselves!—out of bed in the morning. Luckily, The No Time to Cook! Book has plenty of delicious ideas for quick breakfasts that will give kids a much-needed boost of vitamins and energy to get through the school day.
Smoothies are the ultimate go-to breakfast when you are short on time. They are quick and easy to make, and kids can drink them on the way to school. You can even freeze individual portions of their favorite fruits to cut down on morning preparation time. The Wheel of Smoothies feature in the book helps you mix and match ingredients to find the perfect smoothie combination. Try chia seeds or oatmeal to thicken the texture, cardamom seeds or fresh ginger for some spicy warmth, and leafy greens for some extra goodness.
If your kids enjoy breakfast and prefer something a bit more substantial in the morning, Overnight Oats are the perfect choice. These no-cook ensembles must be assembled the night before and stored in the fridge until morning—no additional preparation time necessary for this speedy and nutritious choice. With combinations topped with fresh fruit or nuts and naturally sweetened with honey, nut butter, or banana, you can play around with flavors for a different variety every day of the week. Yum!
These fun choices for quick breakfasts—and all the others found in The No Time to Cook! Book—will make back-to-school easier than ever before!
