A healthy morning meal has been at the center of discussion about everything from weight loss to test scores. Regardless of headline hype, one thing is clear – breakfast is one more chance to add a variety of healthy foods to your kids' day. Foods like whole grains, leafy greens and fruit contain fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals to keep your kids healthy now and lower risk for adult cancers later in life. 

As school starts again, finding time to make, or even sit down for a meal can be hard. Before your kids head out the door to school -- or before you head off to work -- toss together one of these quick and healthy breakfasts. They’re tasty and filled with cancer-fighting fiber balanced with protein and fruit to make sure your kids (and you!) have plenty of energy until lunchtime. 

1. Beautiful Breakfast Toasts

These versatile, open-faced sandwiches can feature any healthy whole grain bread you have on hand, some spread like peanut butter or avocado and a healthy fruit topping.  

2. Pumpkin Spiced Overnight Oats

With just five minutes of prep time the night before, you’ll have an easy grab-and-go breakfast that will keep you satisfied all morning. These hearty, pumpkin-spiced oats are packed with fiber and protein to keep you full all morning. 

3. Healthy Breakfast Trail Mix

These quick and easy trail mixes feature delicious healthy grains like rolled oats, cereal, bran and yes, even popcorn. Pack these up for a super-fast breakfast or anytime snack.
