  • To save time, set the breakfast table the night before. Layout dishes and utensils, along with an assortment of cereals, bagels and a bowl of easy-to-grab fruits

  • Yogurt in squeezable tubes or string cheese, a whole wheat bun or muffin and a fruit juice box provides a quick 'knapsnack' breakfast that can be enjoyed on the way to school

  • Pack lunches the night before and remember to include raw veggies and fruits - kids often prefer to eat them this way

  • Shake up the morning cereal routine by mixing yogurt with a favourite cereal and adding diced fruit for a quick balanced breakfast

  • For a quick, hot breakfast, try instant oatmeal sprinkled with raisins or beat 2 eggs in a mug, cover and microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes and serve with toast or an English muffin

  • Fill a tortilla with fruit and cottage cheese for a quick breakfast wrap that can be enjoyed on the morning commute to school
