To help parents prepare a meal that is both yummy and nutritious, check out these easy breakfast ideas for your kids.
Scrambled egg with cheese
Eating eggs alone, while healthy, can be quite boring to children who are picky eaters. Add a bit of fun to the meal by including cheese in your scrambled eggs. It will add a depth of flavor that will be attractive to the kids. It is also a nutritious breakfast idea as both cheese and egg are good sources of protein.
Fried rice mix
Most Filipino families always have leftover rice, and the most common way to not put it into waste is by making it into fried rice.
Fried rice is usually packed with different vegetables like carrots, cabbage, and Baguio beans. Parents can also mix shredded fish which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that can help improve cardiovascular health.
Bread and bacon
Who does not love bacon? When paired with bread which is rich in fiber like the whole wheat bread, it becomes a delicious morning meal for active kids. Make the bacon extra crispy and be sure to pat it with a paper towel to remove excess fat.
Another go-to breakfast for Filipinos is a bowl of hearty soup. Typically, soups or porridge like lugaw, pancit lomi,and batchoy are usually consumed in the morning in different regions of the Philippines.
Soup can help children keep their stomachs warm and is especially comforting on cold mornings.
