I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was shocked when I realized that school was going to start up again this week. Already! And, of course, the start of a new school year has me thinking about breakfast. Summertime mornings can be loose and lazy, with plenty of time to make fun, yummy breakfasts. But school mornings can be frantic, and it’s way too easy to let breakfast slide.
So here I am with your back-to-school reminder: spend a few minutes of your day making sure the kids start their days with a good breakfast in them—preferably one that didn’t come out of a brightly colored box or from a drive-thru window. If you make everyone’s breakfast yourself, not only will it be much healthier, but you’ll be surprised how cheap it can be. And it can be done without all that much fuss.
