Hello Nutrition Adventurers 🙂 I hope the holiday weekend was fabulous for everyone and you’re enjoying a short work week!

If you’re looking to have a healthier start to the morning, keep reading for my 3 tips for a healthier morning and a short video with 3 quick breakfast ideas with Great Grains® cereal.
3 Tips for a Healthy Morning
- Take a moment to stretch –> After a night’s sleep, it’s good to stretch our muscles to help get blood flowing and send energy through your body. Try any of these yoga stretches to get the morning started.
- Drink a glass of water –> Staying properly hydrated from day to day is important for so many reasons (including mental clarity, metabolism, kidney function, etc.) so do your body a favor and jump start the day with at least an 8-ounce glass of H2O.
- Eat breakfast –> a nutritious, balanced breakfast will give you the energy needed to start your day!
According to the Food Research & Action Center, kids who do not eat breakfast are “less able to differentiate among visual images, show increased errors, and have slower memory recall”. And the same can be true for adults who skip breakfast. That’s why they say “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!”.AD: Learn about the importance of #breakfast for #kids + 3 quick breakfast ideas @PostCereals Click To Tweet
