What Nutritionists Serve Their Kids For Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as the saying runs.
So naturally parents want to start their children off on a healthy, happy note with breakfasts that are both nutritious and delicious. HuffPost asked several nutritionists what they serve their children in the morning, and they shared their general guidelines and kid-approved recipe ideas.
“My children start their day with a smoothie. I find that a smoothie is the perfect mixture of fruit, veggies and protein, and is an easy grab-and-go alternative — i.e ., they can finish it in the car on the way to school — if they take a little longer to wake up in the morning. We tend to add extra vegetables to their smoothies( spinach, avocado, kale, pureed sweet potato, etc .) — not to necessarily’ hide’ the veggies, but to serve them in a way that’s smooth, sweet and mixed well with fruit and full-fat proteins like yogurt and milk.” — Katie Serbinski, a registered dietitian and founder of Mom to Mom Nutrition
