Kid-Friendly Breakfast Ideas

Back to school means back to our routines, alarm clocks, and catching the bus. Although it can be tough to get the kids to have a decent meal before school, we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Children need fuel for school, both for their brain and body to function. Eating a healthy breakfast stabilizes blood sugar, energy, mood, and increases focus.

While there are hundreds of packaged “breakfast” foods on the market, making breakfast at home ensures much healthier ingredients as opposed to sugar and chemicals you’ll find in most pre-packaged options (ie: Pop-tarts, granola bars, and most kid-friendly cereals.)  All of these kid-friendly ideas take 10 minutes or less to make and can be taken on-the-go!

1. PB & J Smoothie (makes 1 serving):

In a blender, combine:

  • ¾ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter or almond butter
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • optional: ½ frozen banana
  • optional:

Instructions: add ice cubes for desired temperature/consistency and serve in a glass once blended. Cheers!

2. Healthy Pancakes or Waffles (makes 2 servings):

In a bowl or blender, combine:

  • ¾ cup whole-grain flour of choice ( or try coconut or almond flour for gluten-free)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • optional: dash of cinnamon

Instructions: lightly coat heated pan/skillet with butter/coconut oil/cooking spray and add pancake mix in small circles. Flip once pancake solidifies (typically 4-5 minutes) and let cook until desired crispness (2-3 minutes.) Plate pancakes and serve with a small amount of honey, natural syrup, or butter. Tastes like a treat, but healthy enough for everyday!

3. Overnight Oats (prepare the night before, makes 2 servings):

In a bowl, jar, or Tupperware, combine:

  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon
  • optional: 1 tablespoon chia seeds (to help thicken and adds nutrients)
  • optional: add fruit and/or nuts/nut butter

Instructions: simply stir together the ingredients and refrigerate overnight for an instant healthy breakfast in the morning!

Hope in the Hamptons

Come out and celebrate the life-saving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® at the Inaugural St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons on July 11th! Hosted by FOX News National Security Expert, Columnist, and Commentator, KT McFarland, this chic red carpet event will feature gourmet, farm-fresh fare, cocktails, an exclusive auction, and a performance by Billy Joel’s Broadway tribute band, The Movin’ Out Band. It’s an event not to be missed with an unprecedented cause.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Everything they do is centered around finding cures and saving children. The most amazing part about St. Jude is that families never receive a bill. They pay for treatment, travel, housing, and food – because St. Jude understands that the only thing that these families should worry about is helping their children live. Now that’s something to celebrate.

Hamptons ImageSt. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent and working to drive this number to 90 percent in the next decade. Meanwhile, St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

In addition to celebrating this great cause and this amazing community, we’ll honor local Hamptons family of little Drew, currently receiving treatment at St. Jude for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Let’s rally for Drew, support St. Jude, and celebrate summer in the Hamptons! Click here or call (212) 239-3239 to purchase tickets for Hope in the Hamptons. One Healthy Hamptons is honored to support this cause and we’re looking forward to seeing you Saturday, July 11, 2015, 6-10:30pm at 1143 Deerfield Road, Water Mill.

One Healthy Breakdown: lets spread hope throughout the Hamptons and far beyond!

One Healthy Educator

Introducing Tara Daniels, wonder woman with a brilliant way of combining her expertise in Early Childhood Education with her passion for fitness to create innovative strides (literally.) Read all about how Tara’s company Kiddie Fit is changing the world, one little classroom at a time!

image1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did ‘life as you know it’ come to be?

I am an East Quogue resident and a mother of a wonderful seven year old boy, Cooper. I’ve always had a passion for health and wellness. There is nothing more rewarding than a kick-ass workout and a happy, healthy child to come home to. Having worked in the early childhood field for 20 years, as a teacher, then working my way towards administrator, I always had a strong belief that the playground should be used as an extension of the classroom for physical fitness. My desire to incorporate this belief into the daycare/pre-k world was a challenge. I always went for a short run during my lunch break to clear my mind. Soon enough, others teachers wanted to join me, which prompted me to start a running clinic for teachers during lunch (we invested in lots of baby wipes and baby powder! 😉 It didn’t take long for my coworkers to realize how energized and alert they felt upon their return to the classroom. I then encouraged them to channel that exact feeling towards the children in their class, to have them move with a purpose. This paved the way for Kiddie Fit, which combines both of my passions – a true dream. I believe that introducing young children to various physical activities provides a foundation for them to identify activities that they can enjoy for a lifetime. My goal is to teach young children how much fun excercise can be and lead them to teach or encourage others to be physically active as well; it’s never too early to start living a healthy lifestyle!

image_22. What’s something you overcame in your life and how?

Wow, this one is hard to believe, but I overcame my fear of public speaking!  I have to say I took my father’s advice and whenever I needed to speak in front of a large group, I would start with a joke and picture everyone in their underwear! (Can I say that?) It really worked, and of course, finding my inner strength and confidence helped too! Although parent meetings was not the easiest thing to do, believing in myself caused that aha-moment. When you change your frame of mind and maintain the confidence, anything is possible!

3. What is your favorite food? recipe? workout? weekend activity?

I love, love fresh veggies and Ahi Tuna, but I will never pass on a corner slice of grandma pizza and a glass of red wine! I live for summer months when fresh fruit and veggies are right at our fingertips. My favorite refreshing recipe is watermelon, feta cheese, and fresh mint leaves. Being that I am a certified spin instructor, I will say spinning is my favorite workout. When I am not teaching Kiddie Fit or spin classes at Sportime, my weekends are spent with my son and my amazing boyfriend, Ryan. We bike ride, jog in the neighborhood, walk on the beach, collecting shell and beach glass, and any other fun idea a seven year-old boy may come up with! We even turned our house into an obstacle course during this crazy winter!!!

4. As a woman, business owner, mom, member of the Hamptons community, etc. how do you maintain balance in your life?

I believe that a balanced life is a healthy life. I like to keep an open mind with complete confidence. It is not as easy as it sounds; we all have those moments when life tries to drag you down. In those cases, I always make “me time” for self-reflection.

5. Any great healthy/balance tips for other busy women?

Find something that you enjoy doing, something that makes you say “wow, that was awesome!” Be active, be consistent, and most importantly, have fun with it! Taking time for yourself to pursue your passions, doing things you enjoy, and relaxing will make you happier and healthier!

6. What food items do you always have on hand?

The one food item I always have on hand are my Green Magic, Mamma Chia squeeze..This little pouch provides me with a refreshing little treat and are packed with essential Omega-3s, protein, and fiber. It’s a great way to kick start my work out!

7. What is your favorite indulgence?

My favorite indulgence, well…I have three. We already know about the corner slice of grandma pizza and red wine…my third is dark chocolate. While I would never deprive myself of these favorites, I know that moderation is key to maintaining a healthy diet.

8. How do you make health a priority in your home/life/family?

We’re a pretty active family. My son loves to watch me teach spin and cannot wait until he can take a class! Whether it’s Sportime, Kiddie Fit, or spin class, our bike rides, walks, or little jogs, exercise really is just a part of our everyday life. When it becomes routine, it becomes part of you and you don’t even have to think about it, just do it.

9. What is your FAVORITE thing about the Hamptons?

My favorite thing about living in the Hamptons is definitely the beaches! We really live in an area filled with such beauty – coastal living at its best! Each town has amazing restaurants and that small community vibe I love!

One Healthy Breakdown: Don’t look for happiness, create it! Life is full of choices, do what makes you happy!

*One Healthy Hamptons is proud to partner with KiddieFit for a pre-k program at Sportime this fall, we’ll keep you posted on details soon!
