Clean Eating for Toddlers Series – Breakfast Part 1
First rule of healthy eating: Have your pantry stocked only with good, nutritious foods. Don’t put tempting items in your pantry such as sugary cereals, frozen sausage biscuits, toaster pastries, etc… because you will get weak and succumb to eating these. That being said, you need to have your pantry stocked with healthy foods that you can go straight to for a nutritious recipe that will leave your kids feeling energized. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why I have put a lot of emphasis on this meal.
So, go out to your local super market(s) and buy these essentials. You won’t have to buy them again for a while (except for the foods that expire quickly…fresh berries and so forth), so the initial investment will be long lasting.
