From Aparna’s Kitchen:
We all know this saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.” As the day begins, we are more active and need sufficient intake in the morning to kick-start our energy levels. In-short Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For our children who eat dinner at 7- 7:30 pm, its a long fasting night so its important for them to have breakfast everyday. But what they eat in the morning is equally important. Choosing breakfast foods that are rich in whole grains, fiber, and protein can boost children’s attention span, concentration, and memory.
Why not try this healthy, nutritious wholegrain pancake & see the smile on your little-ones face and start the day on a great healthy note.
