Smoked salmon, red onions, avocado, and tomatoes. This is my favorite breakfast to make and eat.

According to the website, All Breakfast, All the Time”A study of 5,000 kids (ages 9 to 11) by Cardiff University showed that children are twice as likely to score higher than average grades if they start the day with a healthy breakfast.” I know that as a busy working mother I don’t always have the time to make my kids a healthy breakfast. So, what I try to do  on Sunday is meal prep and make the breakfast wraps for them and put it in the fridge. My kids are 14 and 17 and are very health conscience because of the way I raised them. Thanks to Dr. Spock, a leading child specialist, I started feeding my kids healthy foods since they were babies. I remember Doctor Spock said if you want your kids to be healthy then start “training” them early by giving them nutritious food and that’s exactly what I did. Now that my kids are 14 and 17, I must say that was the best advice I have ever read on child nutrition because they always ask me, ” Mom, how much carb, sugar, sodium or fat is in this?’  I have to admit sometimes it’s  challenging to feed them healthy food on a tight budget when fast food are sometimes cheaper! And yes sometimes I get annoyed when they come home hungry because they refuse to eat the food at school because they say it’s too fat. I guess I can’t blame them for making wise choices. So I learned to meal prep and have food already made for them when they get home from school. Feeding your kids healthy does start with that first solid food you put in their mouths! That first year of their solid food eating is so important so feed them veggies and fruits right away before they learn to hate it!
