Champion’s breakfast: how to feed a schoolboy

Well, it’s autumn. And for school­child­ren, this is the begin­ning of a new stage in life. Ahead of them, so to speak, tast­ing vari­eties of gran­ite sci­ence. But you and I are well aware that not only it should con­sist of the ide­al diet of a stu­dent!

how to feed a student

For most of the year, name­ly nine out of twelve months, school­child­ren work seri­ous­ly: solve com­plex prob­lems, devel­op mem­o­ry and log­ic, give all the best both in class and dur­ing breaks. That is why it is very impor­tant that the morn­ing meal of chil­dren is healthy, bal­anced and reg­u­lar. What kind of break­fast will fill the stu­dent with vit­a­mins and ener­gy for the whole day?

A good day starts with a good break­fast! This is an extreme­ly impor­tant meal, because it is the first after a long fast­ing of the body (night). And chil­dren who eat right, study well, get sick less often, feel cheer­ful and joy­ful.

So break­fast is every­thing! But most stu­dents flat­ly refuse to eat a hearty meal in the morn­ing, and agree only to grab a choco­late bar, chips or drink soda on the go. Don’t let it hap­pen! A cul­ture of nutri­tion can and should be instilled from child­hood!

We are ready to help you and give you an approx­i­mate direc­tion on how to cre­ate a com­plete menu that will help your stu­dent improve the start of the school day.

Cereals and grain crops

Among break­fasts for school­child­ren, cere­als are con­sid­ered the leader. And it is no coin­ci­dence. They con­tain a whole range of use­ful vit­a­mins, veg­etable pro­teins, “slow” car­bo­hy­drates and oth­er trace ele­ments that are nec­es­sary for the child’s body. In addi­tion, morn­ing por­ridge is not a heavy food for the diges­tive tract and helps to cheer up after a long sleep. And because of the con­tent of fiber use­ful for the diges­tive tract, it can be sati­at­ed for a long time.

Cereals and grain crops

True, it often hap­pens that chil­dren quick­ly get bored with por­ridge. But don’t be afraid to exper­i­ment! Try to use por­ridge not just as a tasty and healthy side dish for a meat, veg­etable or fish dish — cook deli­cious treats from them: cook­ies, pan­cakes, casseroles or home­made mues­li.

Mak­ing mues­li is very easy. To do this, mix some oat­meal, seeds, sesame seeds, var­i­ous nuts, liq­uid hon­ey, veg­etable oil. Dry the mues­li in the oven by lay­ing it out on a bak­ing sheet. You will be sur­prised by the result.

A stu­dent of any age will not refuse such a break­fast.

Dairy and dairy products

The ide­al option for a healthy break­fast for a child’s body are foods high in pro­tein, potas­si­um, cal­ci­um and pro­tein. And these are dif­fer­ent cheeses, dairy and sour-milk prod­ucts. They give a feel­ing of sati­ety and help reg­u­late appetite through­out the day.

dairy products

As a rule, such prod­ucts are not includ­ed in the list of chil­dren’s favorite foods. There­fore, they have to be masked. To do this, you can cook cheese­cakes, lazy dumplings, casseroles, a creamy mass for spread­ing on toast and crack­ers.

If your child flat­ly refus­es to eat dairy prod­ucts in any form, we rec­om­mend pay­ing atten­tion to the super-choco­late and deli­cious new prod­uct from START! – COCOA PICS. It will be a deli­cious addi­tion that will turn the unloved “milk” into a long-await­ed break­fast. It is enough to add crispy fig­ures to milk or yogurt, cot­tage cheese, casse­role.

COCOA PICS is a break­fast cere­al in the form of choco­late boats that con­tains nat­ur­al cocoa. It does not con­tain arti­fi­cial col­ors and preser­v­a­tives, which any respon­si­ble moth­er will sure­ly appre­ci­ate. The super choco­late fla­vor of COCOA PICS is so loved by kids!

Cocoa pics

As you remem­ber, a child’s break­fast should con­tain all three essen­tial com­po­nents — pro­teins, fats and car­bo­hy­drates. And to start the day not only healthy, but also enjoy­able, have break­fast with COCOA PICS!

Such super-choco­late “encour­age­ments” for break­fast will be enjoyed by all chil­dren.

Vegetables and greens

Chil­dren often do not like veg­eta­bles. But in vain — they con­tain a lot of vit­a­mins, with­out which the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the body is impos­si­ble.

There­fore, every moth­er has a task — not to give up try­ing to offer the child food that he pre­vi­ous­ly refused. Offer a sal­ad of raw veg­eta­bles (cau­li­flower, car­rots, toma­toes, pep­pers) or baked veg­eta­bles (broc­coli, aspara­gus, car­rots, egg­plant), pump­kin por­ridge or rhubarb pie, stewed cab­bage, pep­pers or zuc­chi­ni stuffed with cheese and greens, car­rot pan­cakes or cab­bage cut­lets.

Vegetables and greens

Well, if none of the above goes away, pota­toes come to the res­cue — this veg­etable is the main source of potas­si­um in our diet. Chil­dren enjoy eat­ing it. So a side dish of baked pota­toes is a great option for a school break­fast. You need to bake the pota­toes, take out the pulp and beat it with but­ter, cream and a pinch of grat­ed cheese. If desired, you can add corn, mush­rooms or onions to the pota­to mass. It is sat­is­fy­ing, tasty and healthy.

Make your child such a break­fast, and he will talk about it with his class­mates all the time through the break. 🙂

Eggs in any form

An egg is a valu­able food item, ide­al for school­child­ren’s break­fast. The child’s body needs cal­ci­um, vit­a­mins A and E, iron and mag­ne­sium — and this is all found in eggs. In addi­tion, some sci­en­tists claim that eggs are a source of the hor­mone of plea­sure. And for school­child­ren, such a hor­mone is vital.

eggs in the diet

So, do not be afraid to include eggs (goose, chick­en, quail or ostrich) in the child’s diet. Such tasty and healthy break­fasts will def­i­nite­ly not both­er him. Indeed, in addi­tion to hard-boiled or soft-boiled eggs, you can cook eggs Bene­dict / poached, morn­ing omelet or scram­bled eggs with dif­fer­ent fillers. There are many options here: veg­eta­bles, herbs, cheese, boiled meat. The pres­ence of such addi­tives makes break­fast more sat­is­fy­ing and bal­anced.

To pre­pare an egg-based break­fast, you will need: eggs, milk, salt, an addi­tive of your choice and very lit­tle time. Cook an omelette on low heat with a closed lid and quick­ly call your kids for break­fast.

We are sure that by prac­tic­ing with such a break­fast, you will find the per­fect one for every child. After all, it’s all about their pref­er­ences.

flour products

We often con­sid­er starchy foods to be harm­ful by default. How­ev­er, this state­ment is true for a 30-year-old woman with a seden­tary lifestyle! And pro­teins, fats, and car­bo­hy­drates are impor­tant for a child, so flour in his diet is quite accept­able.

All moth­ers know well how chil­dren love food pre­pared espe­cial­ly for them.

Well, if you are not in a hur­ry to work in the morn­ing, bake a pie with fresh or frozen berries. The usu­al home­made apple char­lotte is much health­i­er and tasti­er than store-bought con­fec­tionery. Because it’s made with love.

flour baby

Or bake tiny ones, for two bites of a pan­cake — espe­cial­ly for a child. Tak­ing kefir, eggs, sweet­en­er and flour. You can also add grat­ed veg­eta­bles (zuc­chi­ni, car­rots, cau­li­flower) or fruits (apples, bananas). Bake pan­cakes in a hot skil­let for two min­utes on each side. Before serv­ing, in order to get an approv­ing smile of a child, draw a cheer­ful face on a pan­cake with sour cream or jam. Even the most fas­tid­i­ous school­boy will not be able to refuse such an appe­tiz­ing “sun”.

Yes, you can argue with us and say that there are too few use­ful sub­stances in such food. But we are con­vinced that you should try. Just use your imag­i­na­tion and find a replace­ment. Use rye, mil­let, corn flour, or try grind­ing buck­wheat or oat­meal in a cof­fee grinder.

Fruits and berries

Sweet can be includ­ed in the use­ful. Since glu­cose is one of the impor­tant ele­ments that sup­port brain func­tion. There­fore, there should def­i­nite­ly be some­thing sweet in the diet of a stu­dent. Offer him fruit sal­ads or fruit purees. All com­bi­na­tions work here. After all, all fruits and berries are use­ful and rich in vit­a­mins in their own way: grape­fruit burns fat, peach rais­es hemo­glo­bin lev­els, banana is high in calo­ries (and for a healthy and sat­is­fy­ing break­fast, this is it).

Fruits and berries

Pho­to: Bur­da Media

We sug­gest try­ing a con­ve­nient option — fruit puree from banana, rasp­ber­ry, apple, kiwi and per­sim­mon. This will sat­u­rate your child until lunch and charge him with vig­or for the whole day. But some­times kids don’t eat just fruits. Then you can make fruit smooth­ies with milk, kefir or smooth­ies based on yogurt.

Dairy and sour-milk prod­ucts in com­bi­na­tion with fruits and berries will not let the child get hun­gry in the class­room. And your stu­dent will go to school not just full, but also in high spir­its.
