The chilly, dark winter mornings make it extra challenging to wake up a few minutes early to whip together a nourishing, hearty breakfast for the kiddos. But a sugary bowl of cereal isn't the kind of high-octane fuel they require to make it through a demanding school day. The good news? A protein-and-vitamin-packed breakie can be pulled off with little effort. Opt for simple, nutrition-loaded fare like eggs (keep a couple hard-boiled eggs in the 'fridge for days you're running late), milk, cottage cheese, whole grains, fruit, and yogurt. Want more ideas?
