5 Ways to Make the Most out of Breakfast

NYC public school students are back-to-school. Here are five ways to make breakfast count for you … AND for hundreds of kids in New York City!

1. Don't Skip!

Short on time? Make a point to eat something in the morning. Your body and brain will thank you.

2. Whole Grains

These are good sources of fiber, vitamins and minerals and will keep you going longer than processed foods. Try a slice of whole grain bread topped with a slice of cheese. Or, oatmeal or kasha porridge topped with chopped nuts.

 

3. Eat Fresh Fruit

Fresh fruit contains essential vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. Even better, mix fruit into a low-fat yogurt for a quick, delicious breakfast.

4. Try Some Protein

A hard boiled egg or a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread can be a great grab-and-go breakfast that’s high in protein for extra energy throughout the morning.

 

5. And last but not least...

Sponsor a breakfast kit for a child of a sick parent. For as little as $5, you can make sure a healthy breakfast is available for a child whose caregiver is too sick to prepare a nutritious meal before they go to school. Together, we can Make Breakfast Count.
