Starting Kids Off on the Right Foot

You may think that a bowl of fresh fruit for breakfast isn’t going to be very filling. If this is the case, simply add a piece (or two) of whole grain toast with jelly to the plate.

For example, you may have to leave early for a wedding and don’t want to stop at McDonald’s along the way.
