8 Easy Breakfast Recipes For Kids

Summer is almost over and it’s time to start preparing your Super Hero for school.  I know, I don’t want to get up early either.  I don’t want to be the middleman between the teacher, principal, school staff and my highly independent (stubborn) protege.  Yes, now that I think about it, I realize that he’s more like me at 13, than I initially realized.

Past vs Present

Thirty years ago, when my mom was trying to keep me from climbing the walls, all she had to do was cut down on candy.  But now, it seems like every type of food has additives and preservatives, like food dyes, or high fructose corn syrup, which is used in everything because it’s cheaper than sugar.

I don’t need a lot of letters behind my name to know that drinking a glass of water contaminated with lead is worse for me than a glass of clean, clear spring water.  These toxic chemicals and “food-like” substances are detrimental and have zero value other than it’s cheaper to mass produce.

We Digest FOOD, Only Food

Our bodies know how to digest whole, real food.  We’re supposed to digest whole, real food.  Therefore, things go haywire when we digest processed “food-like” substances (processed foods).

Our wires get crossed in our brains and we function less efficiently.  Cancer and other illnesses develop and our bodies become weaker.  Behavior problems begin so we are prescribed medications (that are made from more chemicals, artificial colors, flavors and toxins) that mask one small piece, like better focus, but create 3 larger problems like  aggression, depression and body tics.

How To Raise a Super Hero

ADHD is a gift, a super power of hyper focus, excess energy,  problem solving, creativity and out-of-the-box thinking.  Our ADHD kids don’t have mental illness’s.  They are not broken and need to be fixed.

We are raising Super Heroes, so it’s important they have a nutritional, healthy whole food breakfast to start the day.   Their bodies need fresh, real food, clear of chemicals and toxins to continue in peak, operating performance.  Their brains are more fragile, yet powerful, so we have to pay special attention to how we nurture them.

If you’re just starting out on improving your Super Hero’s diet, here are a couple ways to start.  These are suggestions.  Several parents have found success by doing just one or two of these, and others may need all of these to manage ADHD.  Every Super Hero is different and has individual needs to promote their individual abilities.

  • Increase water intake
  • Buy Organic as much as possible – Eliminate all artificial flavors, colors (especially No Red Dye 40), nitrates/nitrites, and high fructose corn syrup.
  • Reduce or completely eliminate refined sugar.
  • Reduce carbohydrates like bread, pasta,  and rice
  • Reduce or eliminat gluten
  • Reduce or eliminate dairy
  • Increase clean proteins

8 Breakfasts To Start The School Year Off Right

Eggs with Tater Tots And Strawberries

This one is so easy!  Cook an egg any way your heroes like (scrambled, fried, over easy, sunny side up), bake some tater tots in the oven, and add some sliced strawberries on the side.  Kid-friendly, kid loved.
