Healthy Habits Challenge #2: Breakfast Boosters
Welcome to Thrive Inside Nutrition’s first ever Healthy Habits Challenge Series!
I’m thrilled to have you here!
This series of free 5-day challenges aims to help you boost overall nutrition, health and wellness for your kids and for yourself. As I often say, children’s health is family health.
This week’s challenge is focused on boosting nutrition at breakfast. Mornings can be busy, and for many people (including adolescents) it’s common to rush out the door without breakfast. Even young kids often feel rushed at breakfast, grabbing a bowl of cereal that is neither filling nor nutritious before rushing to catch the school bus. This week we’ll look at breakfast options that involve whole foods, provide complete nutrition for energy and brain power, and take little time to prepare and enjoy.
Since this is our second challenge, we’ll build on the skills your kids learned last month during the Kids in the Kitchen Challenge. Remember to involve everyone – learning to make nutritious breakfasts is a life skill we want to pass along!
So, get everyone on board for 5 days of delicious fun and let’s learn how to use whole foods to boost nutrition and overall energy!
As always, these challenges are flexible because you’re busy and your family’s schedule fluctuates throughout the week. To make this challenge achievable for everyone, I’ve broken it into five (5) different tasks, or one task per day. You may tackle these tasks in any order, allowing you to schedule these as you can over the next five days. Here’s the breakdown:
