Child Health Week - Nutrition tips

Eat your breakfast.  It's the most important meal of the day!  Imagine you're a car. After a long night of sleeping, your fuel tank is empty.  Breakfast is the fuel that gets you going so you can hit the road.

What Should You Eat?

Any breakfast is better than no breakfast, but try not to have doughnuts or pastries all the time. They're high in calories, sugar and fat. They also don't contain the nutrients a kid really needs. And if you have a doughnut for breakfast, you won't feel full for long.


Just like with other meals, try to eat a variety of foods, including

  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • grains (make at least half your grains whole grains)
  • protein (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dry beans, nuts, and seeds)
  • dairy products (lowfat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt)
