Health Tip: Eat a Nutritious Breakfast

(HealthDay News) -- Breakfast is the first opportunity of the day to eat a nutritious, healthy meal.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these healthy breakfast suggestions for you and your family:

  • Offer a lean protein, such as Canadian bacon, eggs, cheese, deli meat, peanut butter or yogurt.

  • Pair the protein with a whole-grain carbohydrate, such as a whole-grain cereal, bread, waffle or pancake or oatmeal.

  • Don't forget fruits and vegetables; top yogurt with some fruit or chop up veggies to add to an omelet.

  • If you don't have time to prepare a nutritious breakfast in the morning, prepare as much as you can the night before.
