I have spent the last 2 hours reading your newsletter and wonderful recipes. I have already printed a whole bunch I want to try. I love them because they are using ingredients one has on hand. I love that and just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all your hard work in putting together this newsletter. Thank you very much.

Back To School Breakfast
by Patty Liston

With most schools beginning within the next few weeks, moms are gearing up for the back-to-school routine, even if their children aren’t.

Early morning breakfast, lunch boxes, and after-school snacks will soon become the norm in most house-holds, and we are here to help you with some ideas to get you started.

Whatever your plan, there are bound to be days when breakfast is “on the fly”. We all know that this is the most important meal of the day, especially for children who need to be able to concentrate in school. Try these fun ideas.

Banana Dog:

  • Whole wheat hot dog bun
  • Peanut butter
  • Wheat germ
  • Banana

    Put everything on the whole wheat bun and eat. Whether kids are eating this in the car, or around the table, this is a fun breakfast.

    Breakfast in a Bag:
    (Have this ready in the fridge not only for breakfast, but for an after-school snack as well)

    Mix in a large zip-lock bag any variety of the following:
  • ¼ cup each of any dried fruit combinations such as pineapple, banana, mango, raisins, apricots—or all of the above!
  • ¼ cup each combinations of nuts such as walnuts, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts
  • 1 cup whole grain cereal

    Mix all together. You can double, or triple this recipe to make sure that you have enough on hand. Just put a cupful in a small zip-lock and the children can eat this on the way to school.

    Quick Smoothie
    (This can be a breakfast or after-school snack)

  • 2 bananas
  • 10 partially frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup of another berry such as blueberries, or raspberries
  • ½ cup 1% or non-fat milk

    Mix together in a blender and pour! This is a delicious quick smoothie recipe.
