Grab n' Go

Hard cooked eggs
Make ˝ dozen of these a week and have them on hand for breakfast and snacks. They’re delicious with a little salt and pepper. Eggs are one of the best sources of protein. You can peel ahead or just before eating.  Put in a small bag or cup to eat on the run.

Place 6 eggs in a saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to a gentle boil and then turn down and keep in the hot water for 10 minutes.  Run under cold water.  Refrigerate.  

Yogurt
Let kids pick their favorite flavor.

Cold pizza
If you have pizza for dinner the night before, save a slice for breakfast

Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread
Add a glass of milk and it will keep you satisfied all morning.

Smoothies
Kids can learn to make their own smoothies.  The classic smoothie is made by putting ˝ cup nonfat vanilla yogurt, ˝ cup orange juice, and a banana in the blender and blending until smooth and creamy.  You can change the juice and fruits for wonderful flavor combinations. Frozen fruits make the smoothie thicker.  Couple it with a piece of whole wheat toast for a complete breakfast. Put any leftovers in a popsicle mold and freeze for creamsicles.
