(NC) - Well-nourished students perform better in school. Yet, 31% of elementary school and 62% of secondary school students do not eat a healthy breakfast daily. Help ensure children and youth receive the proper nutrition they need for healthy development.
A good day begins with a good breakfast, like this delicious recipe from the Canadian Living Test Kitchen.
- 2-1/4 cups (550 mL) all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
- 1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and nutmeg
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup (250 mL) plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated orange rind
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) each orange juice and vegetable oil
- 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) fresh blueberries
In large bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, orange rind and juice and oil; pour over dry ingredients. Sprinkle with blueberries; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups, filling to top. Bake in centre of 375 F (190 C) oven until golden and tops are firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 2 minutes. Transfer to rack and let cool completely.
