The Most Important Meal of the Day

Research has confirmed breakfast is the most important meal of the day- especially for children. Our children are constantly growing, learning and playing. Giving them the best start to their day provides them with the energy, brain function and alertness they need to preform.

When we wake up in the morning, it has been many hours since we’ve had food or water. We need to replenish our bodies for the start of a new day-breakfast is our fuel. Studies show that children who eat breakfast are more focused in the classroom; they have more strength and endurance to preform physical activity and are overall more nourished.

So many things get in the way of breakfast- running late, busy morning, busy schedules, and sometime we just aren’t hungry. There are several easy ways to make breakfast a quick and easy priority.

  • On the go – keep convenient foods on hand.
    • Yogurt
    • String cheese
    • Sliced fruit
    • Oatmeal
    • Dry cereal
    • Whole grain toast

  • Leftovers – who said it has to be breakfast foods? Eat last nights dinner!
  • Plan your meal the night before – this will give you more time to make breakfast nutritious- include a protein, whole grain and fresh fruit.

If you don’t have the time, don’t forget:

Some of the delicious meals we offer include:

Sunrise Sausage Sandwich– Our take on this uniquely American concept starts with our home-style buttermilk biscuits. Mmmm, fluffy biscuits go terrific with sausage. But our sausage is much healthier than traditional sausage. Same great taste with leaner meat & much less sodium!

Mighty Morning Breakfast– Eggo Mini Homestyle Waffles and a Sausage Link or Pillsbury Mini Maple Pancakes and a Sausage Link.

Zucchini Bread– The smell of this freshly baked zucchini bread is hard to miss. And with good reason! One whiff will have your kid salivating for a bite. Fingers crossed you didn’t pack a lunch that day or your kids will be doing their best to trade up for “just one bite”!

Bumble Bee Breakfast Bar– Don’t have time to sit down for a bowl of cereal? Grab one of our breakfast bars and have breakfast on the go.

Seasonal fruit, fat free milk and juice are also served daily!
