School Breakfast FAQs
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but WHAT you have for breakfast matters, too. A good breakfast to eat before school should have a decent amount of protein, for some staying power to fuel you until lunch time. This can be found in the form of eggs, protein powder, yogurt, cheese, etc. Luckily most of the recipes above are packed with protein! Fiber is also a bonus to include in your breakfast before school, which will keep you full (hello veggie packed casseroles and fruit filled smoothies!).
Breakfast Casserole can last 4-5 days in the fridge. If you make it on a Sunday, you can surely enjoy pieces throughout the week until Friday. If you don't think you'll eat it all, freeze some!
For those days when you don't even have time to sit down at the table for a morning meal, consider a breakfast for on-the-go. Breakfast ideas that are easy to travel with are smoothies that you can sip on during the commute to school, overnight oats that you can take the jar with you , or something like a muffin or breakfast sandwich that don't require any untensils.
