● Are more attentive
● Are more energetic in the morning
● May have fewer discipline problems

Make a nutritional breakfast with these quick ideas:

● Toast a whole-wheat waffle. Spoon blueberries or strawberries over the top.
● Combine a favorite ready-to-eat, whole-grain cereal with low-fat flavored yogurt instead of milk.
● Mix low-fat vanilla yogurt with a dash of cinnamon. Dip grapes, orange slices or kiwi fruit slices.
