The article focuses on the role of good and nutritious breakfast for children. It's important for young children to have a good breakfast, preferably with a healthy serving of protein. Protein is essential for attentiveness, concentration, and thinking. Cereal and milk with a piece of fresh fruit is probably the easiest breakfast to serve and one most children will readily eat. Most pediatricians recommend 2% milk for children in the 2-to 6-year-old range. It is worthwhile to get up 15 minutes earlier to allow enough time to share a sit-down breakfast together.
