Power Breakfasts

As parents, we've all heard results from studies that show how important breakfast is for our children. Being properly "fueled" by a healthy breakfast gives kids the stamina and brain power they need to learn effectively and get through their school day. The dilemma, of course, is getting kids to take the time for breakfast, and then finding something quick, tasty, and healthy that they'll eat. The recipes featured here in our Power Breakfasts section—which range from nutritious fruits drinks to granola bars to pancakes—offer many options for you and your kids.
