The Importance of Getting a Good Breakfast

Breakfast gives you the nutrients you need to power through your day. It also helps maintain your weight; if you eat breakfast, you won't be hungry throughout the day, so you won't eat as many unhealthy snacks.

Healthy Breakfast Options

Try eating a whole grain bagel with low fat cream cheese, the whole grain will provide you with fiber and the cream cheese is full of calcium. A fruit with a cheese stick will give you vitamins you need and calcium, and a small low fat yogurt with granola will give you fiber and calcium.

Smart Snacking

Try healthy snacks to power your day.

  • Cheese sticks
  • An apple
  • Peanut Butter and Whole Grain Crackers
  • Summer Sausage and Whole Grain Crackers
  • Natural Fruit Smoothie

These foods are rich in calcium, protein, vitamins, and fiber.
