7 Healthy and Fun Back to School Breakfasts

Are you looking for new breakfast ideas for back to school?  These 7 back to school breakfasts include  fruit, nuts, grains and yogurt.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially back to school breakfasts!  A healthy breakfast is a perfect way to start your child’s day right. Cereal and milk can get boring, and donuts aren’t exactly healthy. So what are some better options?

There are so many options for breakfast ideas that have sugar, I wanted to have some ideas that are quick and healthy while still being something the kids can help make.  Take a peek below at 7 healthy and fun back to school breakfasts perfect for starting your child’s day on the right foot!

1. Banana boats.
Peel a banana and place it in a bowl. Let your child top it with healthy toppings such as fruit, nuts, or coconut. When done, hand them a spoon and let them dig in. It is like a healthier version of a banana split, but just as fun for kids.

2. Breakfast pizzas.
Melt some low-fat cheese on an English muffin. Add some bacon crumbles or chopped vegetables if you wish as well. It is the perfect hand-held breakfast that your child is sure to love making as well as eating.

3. Fruit tornadoes.
Add some low-fat yogurt and fresh chopped fruit to a blender. You can even add a little fruit juice or honey if you wish. Blend well and serve in a glass with a fun straw. Kids will love whipping up their own concoction as well as drinking it.

4. Yogurt bites.
Place spoonfuls of yogurt on a sheet of wax paper (placed on a cookie sheet) and freeze. Once solid you can peel them off and enjoy them as cool bite-sized snacks. You can even add finely chopped fruit to the yogurt prior to freezing if you wish.

5. Fruit leather.
Blend some fresh fruit and a little honey in a blender until you have a smooth mixture. Pour it into a food dehydrator tray and dehydrate according to product directions. When done you can peel the leather off for a quick breakfast on the go.

6. Trail mix.
Make a breakfast trail mix complete with granola, dried fruit, almonds, and shredded coconut. Place it in baggies so in the mornings all you need to do is grab it and go. It can even be stirred into a yogurt cup or your oatmeal for extra flavor.

7. Toasted peanut butter.
Consider toasting a peanut butter sandwich and adding in sliced fruit. You can also try a little honey. Cut the bread out with cookie cutters prior to toasting for some extra back to school fun.

Making a healthy yet fun breakfast for back to school can be easy when you give these tips a try. Don’t let your child out the door without being properly fueled, add these healthy and hearty breakfast ideas to your menu plan instead!

Frugal Living Means Knowing What to Spend Money On

Know what to spend money on

For many people, frugal living is thought to be living without spending money.  While I think there is some truth to that, that is definitely not the way it is for most of us.  Frugal living is more about knowing what to spend money on rather than what you’re not getting.   It is about having the life you want by prioritizing what your money is spent or how you save it.

A few weeks ago I was discussing with my mom a little about our plan for the next few years.  I told her we were thinking of selling all our baby clothes since it would be a few years before we are going to have our next baby if we have another at all.  Her response surprised me a bit.  She said, “I don’t think that is a very frugal thing to do.  You’ll just have to buy them again when you have another baby.”  Really, though, she is right.  We will have to buy them again if we have another baby.  But what is the cost of storing them? Especially with people always having hand me downs and thrift stores to shop in, the cost to have room to store our clothing would be more than if we sold them and then used the same amount of money buying them back.
