Breakfast Brain Food Is The Best Way To Start The Day
(NAPSA) - Buying the newest supplies may not be the best way to help your child succeed in school or at play. The best purchase may actually be the groceries stocked in the refrigerator, like healthy breakfast foods high in omega-3 fatty acids and choline for brain development, as found in Eggland's Best eggs.
Additionally, a study in the Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics outlines the importance of a nutritious morning meal, linking skipping breakfast to weight increase in adolescent schoolchildren.
With three times more omega- 3s and 10 times more vitamin E than the average egg, Eggland's Best (EB) is one of many nutrient- dense foods that can potentially help promote brain focus along with memory and cognitive functions in children throughout the day. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, 19 percent less cholesterol (175 mg. vs. 215 mg.), 200 mcg. of lutein for eye health, plus provide 40 percent of a person's daily requirement of iodine. Here's a tasty recipe to make the most of this valuable brain food:
Cook Time: 3-4 minutes
Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Beat Eggland's Best eggs; pour into skillet and cook, stirring continually, until slightly set, about 2 minutes. Add cheese. Spread refried beans on tortilla.
Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds. Spread Eggland's Best egg and cheese filling down the center of the tortilla. Add salsa and sliced avocado. Fold one side of the tortilla over filling. Fold up bottom. Roll securely.
Don't let the morning time crunch tempt kids to skip breakfast.
