It's back-to-school time across the nation, and that means staying organized, getting plenty of rest, and starting the day right by eating breakfast. This can be a battle with children, but as we know eating well is crucial for our kids to keep them alert and energized throughout the day. My sometimes picky eater has been a fighting me with breakfast, so to encourage eating and to provide her with variety and a balanced breakfast I have been thinking about serving an English muffin or whole grain toast with some delicious Nutella® hazelnut spread topped with fresh fruit (berries, apples, bananas, etc) as well as a side of Greek yogurt and a small smoothie.
This quick and easy breakfast option can not only save you valuable time in morning, it is also a part of a balanced breakfast that is a wonderful tool to get kids to eat as well. Using Nutella® is also a great way to enhance morning meals by adding this tasty spread to bagels, croissant, waffles or pancakes while also incorporating fruit and a source of protein for a well-balanced to start to the day.
With no preservatives or artificial colors as well as a product that is Kosher certified and Gluten free, Nutella® is a delicious spread that features a unique taste profile thanks to the blend of hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa that makes the flavor irresistible and memorable.
To inspire some delicious breakfast ideas Nutella® is on move in their Nutella®Breakfast Tour where you can taste some incredible samples, take a picture next to their giant inflatable Nutella® jar and even have a chance to own an exclusive Nutella® Breakfast Tour t-shirt.
