Mornings for moms remain a hectic affair as they strive to help everyone get ready for the day, whether they or their loved ones are working from home or leaving for the office. Even with kids continuing with the distance learning setup, they still need plenty of energy to thrive in a full day of online classes and activities. 

Breakfast remains the most important meal of the day and parents must make a morning meal that will power up their kids through school. It needs to have all the Go, Grow, and Glow nutrients that will not only give them energy for the day but aid in their learning and development. 

The morning meal also provides plenty of opportunities for parents to have special moments with their kids as they can work towards preparing this meal together; not only will they prepare the food quicker but they will also start the day with a healthy bonding activity. 

Breakfast sandwiches are an easy way to make a no-fuss meal early in the morning while still being packed with nutrients to start the day. Magandang Buhay momshies Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal, and Melai Cantiveros know by experience the importance of breakfast and the need to make a filling and nutritious one for their kids. In one of their recent segments called the ''Go, Grow, Glow, Gising Breakfast Show,'' the hands-on moms shared some of their favorite breakfast sandwich recipes to co-create with their kids.

Bacon Sandwich

Who can resist bacon? With its unique, buttery, and salty taste, any kid will surely gain an appetite in the morning when they find bacon on their plate. 

Moms will find it easy to prepare a simple bacon meal with this recipe and it will only take about 10 minutes to prepare. Get to work by frying four slices of bacon until crispy and toast a mini ciabatta bread. Slice some tomatoes and cheese and get the kids to help build their breakfast sandwich. 

First, evenly spread Lady's Choice Bacon Spread on the bread, layer the bacon, tomato, cheese, and some healthy greens like arugula, before topping with the other slice of bread. 

In this episode, Momshie Karla Estrada shared that she loves making this with her nephew Jordan and they enjoy eating it open-faced sandwich style, where they no longer top the sandwich with another slice of bread, as it helps lessen the calorie intake for people who are watching their weight.

''This is a nutritious, balanced meal. Present ang Go, Grow, and Glow foods,'' said Estrada as the bread belongs to the Go food group, and the bacon, cheese, and farm-fresh eggs from the Lady's Choice Bacon Spread belongs to the Grow food group, while the arugula and tomatoes complete the picture as it belongs to the Glow food group. 

She also shared that this breakfast sandwich does a good job on fueling Jordan with energy for the whole day. ''Itong bacon sandwich does the job talaga para kay Jordan. Dahil kumpleto nga ang Go, Grow, at Glow na food, may lakas siya talaga for studies at sa ilang chores niya dito sa bahay. Kaya gawin n'yo na rin ito with your anakshies for breakfast.''
(This bacon sandwich really does the job for Jordan. Because it is complete with Go, Grow, and Glow food groups, he really has the energy for his studies and chores at home. So do it together with your kids for breakfast.)

Chicken Bacon Explosion

Chicken is another food that kids simply cannot resist. So why not try mixing chicken and bacon in their morning treat?

Enjoy a twist on the classic BLT (bacon lettuce tomato) with the Chicken Bacon Explosion breakfast sandwich. Plus, this recipe is both easy and quick to make. Like the first recipe, this one calls for some fried crispy strips of bacon, vegetables such as lettuce and tomatoes, and toasted bread.

While you are toasting the bread and frying the bacon, get the kids to put Lady's Choice Chicken Spread on the bread slices. When done cooking, work together to build your Chicken Bacon Explosion.

Momshie Jolina Magdangal shared that this recipe puts a unique spin on a classic sandwich she and her son Pele saw in a kiddie show. 

''Alam ninyo si Pele 'pag kinakain ito, gumagawa pa talaga siya ng explosion sounds,'' shared Magdangal who attributes the meaty flavor explosion to Lady's Choice Chicken Spread that contains real chicken bits. 
(You know when Pele eats this, he actually makes explosion sounds.)

She also suggested to moms to try using tomato salsa instead of sliced tomatoes for extra flavor.

Hamcheeza Sandwich

If your kids love a good ham and cheese sandwich, surprise them when they wake up with this breakfast ham and cheese sandwich recipe that has received a meaty makeover. 

All you need are toasted bread slices, softened butter, Lady's Choice Ham Spread, ham slices, and of course, slices of cheese. After toasting the bread, your kids can spread butter on the slices and a generous slather of Lady's Choice Ham Spread. Add one to two slices of ham and cheese and finish the sandwich by toasting it some more until the cheese has melted. For added texture, you can add chopped spring onions or crispy garlic chips. 

Momshie Melai Cantiveros advised parents to make it a daily habit to bond with their kids by making breakfast sandwiches like the Hamcheeza Sandwich together. ''Kasi napanood ko sa ilang sinusundan ko na food and family vlogs na malaking tulong daw talaga na isali ang ating mga anakshies sa paggawa ng pagkain na kakainin nila. Kasi natututo na sila maging creative, iba pa 'yung satisfaction daw 'pag alam nila na sila ang naghanda ng pagkain.''
(Because some of the food and family vlogs that I follow said that it is a big help to involve our children in making the food they will eat. Because apart from learning to be creative, they experience a different satisfaction knowing that they prepared the food on the table.)

Cantiveros also shared in this episode of Go, Grow, Glow, Gising Breakfast Show that her daughter Mela loves unique food plating and presentation, that is why they sometimes cut the sandwich in fun and interesting shapes. Since Mela loves the star shape, she bought a star-shaped cookie cutter online and has been using it since. 

''Sa bahay nagiging bahagi na talaga ito ng bonding naming ni Mela. Ang saya talaga mag-prepare ng breakfast sandwich with our anakshies,'' said Cantiveros. ''When we spend time with them, mas nakikilala natin sila.''
(At home, it really became part of our bonding with Mela. It is really fun to prepare a breakfast sandwich with our children. When we spend time with them, we get to know them better.)
